Its about that time when NBA teams add available veterans to aid them in their championship run, and the latest big acquisition came when forward Caron Butler agreed to join the Oklahoma City Thunder.
Butler’s contract was bought out by the Bucks earlier this week, allowing the 33-year-old vet the opportunity to sign with any team he chose. Butler had missed a portion of this season but has averaged 11 points and 4.6 rebounds in the 34 games he has appeared in.
The addition of Butler gives OKC another scrappy veteran to pair with Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook as they try to return to the NBA Finals. The Miami Heat were also interested in adding Butler to their roster, but he felt his best opportunity would be with the Thunder.
