Butler signed his rookie contract with the Jazz on Wednesday, Paul Garcia of ProjectSpurs.com reports.

Despite Butler not participating in Summer League, it appears that Utah has seen enough to make the 40th overall pick in the 2021 NBA Draft a part of the roster. Butler averaged 16.7 points, 4.8 assists, 3.3 rebounds and 2.0 steals per game last season with Baylor, and he should compete for a spot in the rotation as a reserve right away.
