It's pretty simple to me. Butler is the smarter player both offensively and defensively.

DeRozan is a more gifted scorer.

They're so different that it's not really fair to compare the two. So, on this team, DeMar is the better fit. Butler fits the Chicago mold and what they do there offensively. Personally, I take Butler simply because I really like how hard he works defensively.
Fair enough. I still point to the sample size when it comes to Butler though. Bruce Bowen was a tough defender who could hit shots.... but would he excel as much as he did if he had been asked to score 20/night as well?

We'll see how things go for Butler. Maybe he'll prove me wrong.
