As the rest of the team worked through injuries and struggled to find a rhythm with new pieces such as Pau Gasol and Nikola Mirotic, Butler shouldered an enormous offensive load with far greater efficiency than he had ever mustered before. This is an incredibly rare leap for a young player—especially one asked to do as much on defense as Butler is. One easy way to see his offensive development is to compare his shot charts from the past two seasons. The most dramatic changes in efficiency occurred around the rim and from behind the three-point line. In 2013-14, Butler was only an above-average three-point shooter from the corners. It was the balance in improvement between those two things—hitting from the outside and attacking the paint—that really spurred Butler's surprising leap. He worked on the ball as a punishing dribble-drive threat, able to get into the teeth of the defense while making things happen for himself and his teammates. One of the biggest potential factors in Butler's continued growth is the Chicago offense. Even with the addition of the talented Gasol and a mostly healthy Derrick Rose, Chicago's offense too often stagnated last season.

The Sacramento Kings signed forwards Luc Mbah a Moute and Omri Casspi on Tuesday as they continued a busy week of finalizing free agent contracts. Casspi and the Kings reached an agreement on a $6 million, two-year deal last week. Casspi had several big games with the Kings last season after George Karl took over as coach in February. Mbah a Moute averaged a career-high 9. 9 points to go with 4. 9 rebounds per game with Philadelphia last season. The Kings acquired Mbah a Moute from Milwaukee in the summer of 2013, but they traded him to Minnesota for Derrick Williams less than a month into the season. Mbah a Moute posted a picture on Instagram signing his contract with Sacramento and wrote: “Back to the Kingdom. The Kings drafted the Israel-born Casspi with the 23rd pick in 2009. He spent his first two years with Sacramento before playing two seasons with Cleveland and one with Houston. The Kings signed Casspi again last summer after he was waived by New Orleans. Casspi came on strong under Karl late last season, averaging 19. 9 points in the final eight games. The 27-year-old Casspi wanted to return to Sacramento and waited out the first week of free agency.
