With butler shooting the way he is now there wouldn't even be much of an offensive drop off.
I understand your point, but I also ask, why rush to reward players with starting jobs? Let JJ prove he can minimize his propensity to take dumb fouls, continue to improve his range and offensive arsenal, and maintain his energy as a solid bench guy. What's the rush to always change starters?
