The swingman made that clear after Tuesday's first practice as the Bulls' front office and Butler's agent, Happy Walters, continue to try to hammer out an extension before the Oct. 31 deadline.

Butler is hoping the process doesn't take too long, but he is going to take everything in stride. "I don't really think about it too much," Butler said. "I grew up without money.
