2021 Fantasy Outlook
Butler was selected by the Jazz with the 40th overall pick in the 2021 NBA Draft. Butler had a strong third season at Baylor as he helped carry his team to an NCAA championship while averaging 16.7 points, 4.8 assists, 3.3 rebounds and 2.0 steals. The guard hit an impressive 47.1 percent from the field and 41.6 percent from behind the three-point arc in his final season at Baylor. He has upside as a microwave scorer at the NBA level, and if things pan out right, he could be a similar player to his teammate, Jordan Clarkson, though Butler probably has more defensive potential. That said, Butler probably won't see regular minutes this season. Read Past Outlooks

Personal Bio/PreCareer Summary

Jared Gladwyn Butler was born in August of 2000 in Reserve, Louisiana. The guard is the son of Richard and Juanea Butler. In 2013-14, Butler began his high school career as just an eighth-grader on the Riverside Academy varsity basketball team which won three consecutive state titles from 2014 to 2016. In his senior season, Butler averaged 27.4 points, 8.8 rebounds, 8.4 assists and 3.0 steals and was named the 2017-18 Player of the Year by the New Orleans Times-Picayune. Butler initially enrolled to play basketball at the University of Alabama but transferred before the start of his freshman season to Baylor where he averaged 10.2 points, 3.1 rebounds and 2.7 assists and was named to the Big-12's All-Freshman team. As a sophomore, he led the Bears with 16 points per game and was named First Team All-Big 12. Butler initially declared for the 2020 NBA Draft, but ultimately decided to withdraw and returned to college. Baylor would go on to win the 2021 NCAA championship and Butler was named Final Four Most Outstanding Player. In May of 2021, Butler once again declared for the 2021 NBA Draft after graduating from Baylor in just under three years with a degree in Business-Management. He was selected with the 40th overall pick by the New Orleans Pelicans, but was quickly traded to the Utah Jazz via the Memphis Grizzlies

Placed in protocols
GUtah Jazz
January 10, 2022
Butler was placed in the league's COVID-19 health and safety protocols Monday and is expected to miss time.
Butler is the latest Jazz player to test positive for the virus, joining Joe Ingles, Rudy Gobert, Elijah Hughes and Rudy Gay. Given how Utah's schedule breaks down, he'll almost certainly miss Monday's game at Detroit and Wednesday's game at Cleveland before potentially returning for Sunday's matchup with the Nuggets in Denver.
