Last season Chicago Bulls star Jimmy Butler shocked the world and informed us that Devin Booker of the Phoenix Suns is a trash talker.

Thursday, speaking with Bill Simmons on the B.S. Podcast, Butler praised the Suns' young talent. Asked by Simmons to identify "young players, on the way up, that aren't totally household names yet, but you respect, and they're on your radar," Butler responded:

"I'll tell you one player I do like. Devin Booker. I like that kid. He's young, he can really shoot it. He can get to the rim. He can play."

Butler talks Booker and other players he's impressed with at the 54 minute mark.
