Caron Butler reunites with SVG in Detroit


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(7/14/2014) The Pistons have signed free agent small forward Caron Butler to a two-year, $9 million contract on Sunday, according to Marc Stein of ESPN. Butler will be reunited with head coach Stan Van Gundy, who coached him for one season in Miami.

Butler shot 44.1 percent from downtown after signing with the Thunder in March. During his time with the Thunder and Bucks last season, Butler averaged 10.5 points and 4.1 rebounds over 56 games.


Caron Butler spacing floor for Thunder


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(3/7/2014) Thunder forward Caron Butler showed his value in his second game with the team Thursday against the Suns, after scoring just two points in his debut.  

Butler played 29 minutes in a 128-122 loss, and was on the floor for much of crunch time. He scored 14 points on 4 of 11 shooting, with all four of his field goals coming from three-point range. He also added one rebound and one assist in the loss.

Butler will likely be a role player for the Thunder, but it looks like the veteran has already earned Scott Brooks' trust. He is still averaging just 10.7 points per game in 36 appearances this season. 


Caron Butler does nothing in first appearance


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(3/5/2014) Thunder forward Caron Butler played 26 minutes in his team debut Tuesday against the 76ers, but failed to make much of an impact in a 125-92 win.

Butler's playing time was buoyed by the team's blowout win, but he didn't have much to do with the final score. He scored just two points on 1 of 4 shooting, while adding five rebounds, one block, one steal and one assists.

Butler was able to produce inconsistently in 34 appearances with the Bucks, and often had trouble staying healthy. He is averaging just 10.7 points per game for the season. 


Caron Butler could start in place of Thabo Sefolosha


by Joe Polito | CBSSports.com
(3/3/2014) The newest member of the Thunder might play a large role right away, as The Oklahoman reported Monday that Caron Butler could end up in the starting lineup to replace the injured Thabo Sefolosha

Butler signed with the Thunder last week after reaching a buyout agreement with the Bucks. His decision couldn't have come at a better time, as the Thunder are down a starter in Sefolosha for four-to-six weeks due to a strained calf.

Butler averaged 15.0 points and 6.0 rebounds per game in 13 starts with Milwaukee this season. 


Report: Caron Butler to sign with Thunder


by Joe Polito | CBSSports.com
(2/28/2014) After reaching a buyout agreement with Milwaukee, it appears free agent forward Caron Butler will finish the season in Oklahoma City, as Yahoo Sports reported Friday that he and the Thunder have reached an agreement.

Butler likely opted for the larger role with the Thunder over his other prospective choice, Miami -- where he'd likely be relegated to fewer minutes. The Heat seemed the safer bet given Butler's history with the team and close friendship with Dwyane Wade, but it looks like Butler went with the best opportunity to log meaningful minutes on a championship contender. 

With the Bucks Butler averaged 11.0 points and 4.6 rebounds in 24.1 minutes per game. It remains to be seen whether the Thunder will look to start Butler or opt to bring him off the bench to bolster its depth. This move comes at an opportune time for Oklahoma City, losers of three-straight home games, as Kendrick Perkins will likely miss the rest of the regular season.

Bucks making progress on Caron Butler buyout


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(2/25/2014) The Bucks are working with Caron Butler's agent on a contract buyout, reports The Racine Times Tuesday. Butler is making $8 million this season, a number that would likely be decreased if he is bought out.

Butler has been useful at times for the Bucks, but his inconsistent play and advanced age make him less valuable for the Bucks than for a contender. He is averaging 11.0 points on 38.7 percent shooting, but is making 36.1 percent of his three-point attempts for the season.
