Butler, on the chatter surrounding his future in Chicago: "I don't control that, man. All I can control is how hard I work every day. How bad I want to get better every day. If I end up being traded, then I do. But I'm just, everyday I wake up, I'm fortunate enough to be able to play basketball, in this league against these guys. That's the only thing I can control is how hard I work during the summer."

Butler, on if he believes the Bulls are his team now: "I can't do this by myself. I need four other guys out there with me. We need guys coming off the bench to help us win games. All that talk about who's team it is, we need to have a team full of guys who think it's their team and help us win."

Butler on if he was shocked to hear about the Rose deal: "A little bit. A little bit of a shock. But if you pay attention to what was going on, you would have [thought] it was bound to happen. I didn't expect that but it's here upon us now."
