#FSU’s John Butler has been invited to the NBA combine https://t.co/XNUxL1s2oF— Ben Meyerson (@ByBenMeyerson) May 11, 2022
In his freshman season at Florida State the 7’1 190 Ib wing started 24 of the 31 games he played in Tallahassee averaging 5.9 points, 3.2 rebounds, and 1.2 blocks per game.
He was one of their most sure sharpshooters converting 39% of his three point attempts. He is quite a unique athlete with his size, length, shooting, and ability to create off the dribble.
Butler has until June 1st to make a final decision on whether or not he may return to FSU.
With the combine starting May 16th and ending May 22 he should get crucial information from teams and executives that could sway him one way or the other if he has not made his final decision yet.
