HoopsHype Caron Butler rumors

March 2, 2014 Updates

Former Heat player Caron Butler signed with Oklahoma City this week after being bought out by the Milwaukee Bucks. While the Heat had interest in Butler, he wasn’t viewed as a priority by the Heat’s front office. “We love Caron,” Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said. “We always have viewed him as a Miami Heat guy even though he was only here for a short period of time. But he carried himself in the fashion that we pride ourselves in. “He’s going to a situation he feels is right for him. We felt we made our moves during the offseason, getting Greg Oden and Michael Beasley.” Miami Herald

Caron Butler is headed back to free agency, as his return to his home state wasn't built to last. The Milwaukee Bucks requested waivers for the veteran small forward, whom they traded for in the offseason before slipping to an NBA-worst 11-45 this season. The Bucks announced the move Thursday.

The Bulls continue to cast a wide net in the stronger-than-usual pool of bought-out and waived players and have contacted the representatives for Caron Butler, who completed his buyout from the Bucks. The Bulls hope to sign a 13th player to a prorated portion of the veteran's minimum contract for the stretch run. They also are one of five teams in play for Danny Granger, although several reports have him leaning towards the Clippers or Spurs. Chicago Tribune
