RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2016-17

Subscribe now to see our 2016-17 outlook.

2015-16

Butler enters his fifth season in the NBA as an established star after an excellent 2014-15 season where he made the All-Star Team and won the NBA's Most Improved Player Award. Butler has always been known as a defensive stud, but he became a great all-around player last season as he averaged 20.0 points, 5.8 rebounds, 3.3 assists, 1.8 steals, 0.6 blocks, and 1.1 three-pointers in 39 minutes per game. Although he played a lot of minutes, Butler was only healthy enough to play in 65 games due to an elbow injury. He also improved all of his percentages from the previous season as he shot 46 percent from the field, 83 percent from the free-throw line, and 38 percent from behind the arc. His excellent season paid off big time as he signed a five-year max contract over the summer to remain with the team. The Bulls will rely on him heavily again this year, but it's possible he sees a little less playing time under new head coach Fred Hoiberg than he did under Tom Thibodeau as Thibodeau played his starters huge minutes. Hoiberg is expected to run a more up-tempo offense this year, something that should only help Butler as he excels in the open court and at getting to the rim. When asked by Hoiberg which position he plays, Butler said he thinks of himself as a point guard, so if Rose falls prey to another injury, don't be surprised if Butler simply takes on a more prominent role handling the ball.

2014-15

Many expected Jimmy Butler to make a big leap forward last season, and while his production increased, his efficiency took a big hit in the process. Butler averaged 13.1 points, 4.9 rebounds, 2.6 assists, 1.9 steals, and 0.5 blocks in 39 minutes per game while playing in 67 contests. Now entering his fourth season, he'll look to improve upon his relatively unpolished offensive skill set while continuing to take on some of the toughest defensive assignments in the NBA. Thanks in large part to the mid-season trade of Luol Deng, he saw his minutes rise dramatically last season and was constantly relied upon by coach Tom Thibodeau to grind out games. With the increase in playing time, Butler increased his output, attempting 10.3 shots per game. In turn, he saw his field goal percentage fall below the 40 percent threshold. With the return of Derrick Rose and the addition of other scorers, there will be less pressure on Butler to force the issue on the offensive end. Depth issues plagued the Bulls last season and Butler was called upon to log an incredible amount of minutes for Chicago. While Butler may still be the workhorse on the wing, Thibodeau has significantly more capable options this season, including Tony Snell and European rookie Nikola Mirotic. As long as Butler continues to struggle offensively, he remains a lower-tier fantasy option unless your format values steals.

As long as Butler continues to struggle offensively, he remains a lower-tier fantasy option unless your format values steals.

2012-13

Butler, selected 30th by the Bulls in last year's draft, saw minimal action as a rookie. He had a big Summer League campaign and is projected to take the departed Ronnie Brewer's defensive spark plug role off the bench this season. Look for him to see a major spike in playing time this year.

2011-12

Butler, selected 30th by the Bulls in this year’s draft, averaged 15.7 points, 6.1 rebounds and 1.4 steals at Marquette last year. He played both forward positions in college, but his slight frame (6-8, 215) means he'll probably spend most of his time at the three in the NBA. He should spend most of this year on the bench, but an injury could clear the way for him to get some playing time.
