Default Jackie Butler to the Spurs?

He signed the Spurs offer sheet. Now its up to the Knicks to match or let him go.

Anyone (Knick fans) have a POV about Jackie?

He's young, has great upside, and is powerful.



He's still only 21.

The Spurs game plan is to have either Elson or Butler starting at C with either one being the back up (most likely Elson by years end) with Oberto (if he isn't used in a trade) as the 3rd back up.

Pop has screwed up this off-season trading Rasho and letting Nazr.

He is reduced to Jackie Butler and Francisco Elson.

Not good.

i hope the knicks don't match, this kid needs playing time and some real exposure, SA is the place.

Jackie Butler > Rasho now and > Nazr in a few years.

Seriously.

You have never watched Rasho Nazr play for more than two games, have you?

Nazr was slow footed and had stone hands. He was bad.

Rasho, don't get me started. He had offense and some nice D but he was so soft and weak its not funny.

Good riddance to both.

Pretty good player. Young, can post up and score, and is big. However, his defense isn't that good, but I think it's worth the risk for the Spurs. He could turn to be good player for them, and I don't think the Knicks will match the offer sheet.

Think of Eddy Curry-Lite.

oh, come on. elson is a pretty decent center. though he's not much of a low post threat as far as offense, he can rebound well and has a good midrange shot for a big guy. i would say he's better than nazr offensively and is way more athletic than rasho. i don't like the spurs anyway though.

now for butler, i can't say anything cause i've never seen him play.

Solid signing. Butler was better then Eddy curry last season with the knicks. He hustles, rebounds, can score, a bit short 6-9ish though. Came out of HS undrafted was he? Made a mark in my mind with his hustle plays, I remember one game Jerome James in the first 6 minsutes of the game had 14 straight points, got tired fouled someone to have the 6 min timeout, LB shook his head, the annoucers couldnt believe Jerome would do that, LB played Butler that game and he played hard and good.

NY has already said they're gonna match the offer sheet from SA, so this is a moot point.

Nazr>Rasho>Elson. Spurs better be planing on doing something else.

Sign Lorenzen Wright for MLE at 4 years. He's a quality big, if not an All-Star.

I don't see how Mohammed is that much better than Elson. And Butler just needs freedom to grow.

Wright is nowhere near All-Star caliber. MLE for Wright is a reach. Wright isn't what he used to be.

I didn't say he was an All-Star.

I said he was a quality big. Either Cato or Wright are the best available on the market right now.

Might wanna rewrite that kid, because they haven't.

If anything, recent (and by recent I mean 10 minutes ago) articles out of New York have it as the Knicks will not match.

Sucks for you apparently.

I haven't read anything either way about the offer sheet being matched by NY.

Where are you guys getting this stuff?

Inside of your own heads?
