Free agent small forward Caron Butler has agreed to terms to join the Los Angeles Clippers, per NBA.com Insider David Aldridge. The deal is reportedly for three years, $24 millionĀ :

Caron Butler was a key member of the Dallas Mavericks rotation last season before tearing the patella tendon in his right knee in January. At the time, Butler was averaging 15 ppg and 4.1 rpg in 29 games. Butler fills an area of need for the Clippers at small forward and will most likely start, allowing second year forward Al-Farouq Aminu to come of the bench.

The Clippers will be Butler’s fourth NBA team. He was drafted 10th overall by the Miami Heat in 2002. For his career, Butler has averaged 16.6 ppg, 5.9 rpg and 2.9 apg while also gaining a reputation as a scrappy defender and competitor.
