Default What happened to Jackie Butler?

Wasn't this the guy Larry Brown said was his 3rd #1 pick?

Spurs signed him to a nice contract, I figured because Brown and POP were friends and Brown recommended him.

What has he done with the spurs?

3+ points and 2 rebounds per game for the 11 games he played.

I guess he got a lot of DNP's. I do try and watch Spur games and I never see him play.

I thought he had some skills and good size.

I figured between POP and Duncan he would blossom to become a good backup and in the rotation.

I wonder what the story with him is, does anybody have the scoop?

Damn you Isiah, Should have used the MLE on Butler.

Why? Butler just isn't that good. He brings nothing to the table the Knicks need.

He's not a good defender, positional or situational, nor is he a good rebounder. He's average at best on both fronts.

As for why he's not running with the Spurs...

First, you can't really make a case that he's flat out better than any of the guys in front of him?

Second, the Spurs coaching staff has never been especially good at developing big man talent. Outside of the ready made product they got in Tim Duncan they never had a young big (PF or C) that shown much improvement.

Jackie Butler showed me something when he got minutes in that 23 win season. I know we only one 23 games but when he was playing down the stretch he was putting up nice numbers.

He impressed me a lot. As for Jared Jeffries i liked him in the beggining but then when the season rolled buy, he couldn't buy a jumpshot or make a free throw.

His defense was then called Overated but i like him as a defender he does the dirty work no one sees, he works hard.

Butler was alright, but he just reminded me of a poor man's Eddy Curry.

Exactly my point. Only reason people wish the Knicks resigned Butler is cause he showed a flash of ability once in a blue and now he's not on the team. People did the same thing when the Knicks dropped Maciej Lampe and Milos Vujanic to get Stephon Marbury.

When their team is struggling fans always "covet thy neighbor's wife".
