Lamar Butler back in the states

Final Four alum and poster boy Lamar Butler is back in the states after a brief stint overseas. Apparently Butler has been invited to a training camp for the NBA Developmental League (D-League) team, the Colorado 14ers. In case your wondering what a 14er is, check here, because I didn't believe it either. Now I know this move isn't for money because you basically make more working the night shift at McDonalds than you do as a D-League player, so Lamar must still think he has a shot at the NBA. Each D-League team has two NBA affiliates and the 14ers are with the Denver Nuggets and the New Jersey Nets. Fellow CAA alum Jose Juan Barea, now with the Dallas Mavericks, took the D-League root to the NBA successfully so seeing Butler make it to the big show might not be so far fetched. I had always thought of Lamar as a pure shooter with a lot of defensive intensity. He's undersized for a shooting guard in the NBA and doesn't quite have the skill set to be a point guard. It will be interesting to see if this develops into anything for him, I'll be watching Lamar.

I know you didn't intend it but that last sentence reads kinda creapy.

I don't think he has a shot but would love to be proven wrong.

good to have him back in the states, hopefully it will be easier to keep tabs on him and his games.
