After a promising 2012-13 campaign, Jimmy Butler was moved from the small forward position as a reserve to the starting 2-guard position this year.

The expectation was that he and Derrick Rose would finally produce the formidable duo the team was searching for following Chicago’s 4-1 loss to the Miami Heat in the 2011 Eastern Conference Finals.

How did Butler fare in his new role?

I’m glad you asked.

Here is a look back at his 2013-14 season, including season stats, highlight/lowlight, memorable moment and my final grade.

    He’s a good player. You don’t think the Bulls would trade him, do you?

    • James Tillman

      Appreciate the response. In my honest, opinion, I don’t think they would trade him unless a scenario came up that would help turn them into instant title contenders for an extended period of time.

  • Oscar

    I think he makes a good backup but at this stage he should not be a starter. His current lack of offensive skills, allows the defense to consistently double team the point guard.oscar
