Jimmy Butler a safe bet in the NBA draft?

CREATED Jun 17, 2011

After an outstanding off-season full of strong performances at pre-draft camps and team workouts, former Marquette University forward Jimmy Butler has seen his stock rise in the eyes of NBA General Manager's.

Both Butler, and former Wisconsin standout Jon Leuer, are expected to be chosen in the 2nd round of the draft which will be held on Thursday, June 23rd (I think they both go between picks 32-42).

In a recent blog post on ESPN.com, Butler was listed as a "safe bet" on draft day. The post also suggests that Butler could be a potential late first round pick.
