10:17 AM ET 08.21 | Days after Jarvis Varnado opted for the assurances of an Italian League contract, Da'Sean Butler, another Miami Heat 2010 second-round pick, is moving toward a deal that would give him the chance to compete for a Heat roster spot.

He's not a bad player but he may not have the time he needs to develop in MIA.

Agreed. Practising against LeBron everyday can't hurt your develpment. He needs to get his knee healthy though. Prior to his injury he was one of the best players in last year's NCAA tournament.

No playing time on the Heat.

But lots of time in the NBDL!!!

He would probably fare better as a point guard, but there's not much room for an upstart 2 guard on this team.

They have to trade all their picks away anyway they have no more money to spend. Miami would be smart next year to package some picks and a few b listers to get another solid role player from the west cuz no one in the east will trade unless rebuilding. They will especially need to do this when they loose to orlando or boston in 6 games.

Unless he is +40% behind the arc, they don't need him.

there's a start

He will definitely be a steal from the draft! The only reason why he dropped to later round was because of injury. Remember this dude led his team to the final four just like dwade did with marquette. I wouldnt under estimate these undersized players!!! Who knew d wade would turn out to be flash? lol

Nope. We will let Kobe take that position when he realizes he cant when another title because of the HEAT!!!!!!

Da'Sean Butler played well in college, but with the Big 3 in Miami, I don't think he'll have much playing time which means he won't be able to develop his skills. Then again, Pat Riley did pull off one of the most historic free agency move ever, bringing three superstars together. Who says he can't make Butler into one too?(:
