Should Caron Butler be benched?

I dont really have all that much to talk about here, just a pretty straight up question. I think Nick Young plays better at the 3 then at the 2, and he also plays much better when he is with CP3 as opposed to trying to create for himself.

I have basically given up on Butler this season. His shot has not looked right after the first few weeks, his defense has fallen off a lot, and he isnt a particularly good rebounder or passer. He also doesnt benefit as much from playing with CP3 because he seemingly hates taking set shots, and passes up on open shots a lot.

The main concern for this switch would be how badly the 2nd unit would suffer, but I think it might also give more room for Mo and Bledsoe to operate their games without having to feed the ball to Young all the time if he gets hot.

So what do you guys think?
