He’s more Jimmy than Turner . Evan is a dumb offensive player , that’s not Jarrett
Nope. Jimmy is a far better athlete.
Still doesn’t rule out that type of player he could become lol they just sat in here at the combine show and said he played like derozan whose a plus athlete as well. Culver isn’t a great athlete but he’s still a decent one and uses what he has to get around on the court. Interested to see his drill numbers if he ever does it . Even Draft Express has an article saying they questioned if Jimmy could keep up with the elite wings defensively

If he develops the ability to stretch the floor, there's no question that he'll be a nice addition to a team with a bench full of athletic scorers. Butler may struggle with the athleticism of elite wings at the NBA level, but much like Lazar Hayward and Wesley Matthews before him, he's well versed in compensating for his limitations and takes pride in his play defensively.
