Free agent forward Rasual Butler has reached agreement on a non-guaranteed contract with the Indiana Pacers, agent Joel Bell told RealGM. Butler played for the Pacers’ summer league team in July and averaged 6.2 points and three rebounds in 13.8 minutes per game. At 6-foot-7, Butler established himself as a strong outside shooter over 10 seasons in the NBA – his most recent coming in 2011-12 with the Toronto Raptors. Despite the deal being non-guaranteed, Butler is expected to receive a shot to battle for his standing in training camp and preseason. RealGM

But if the subject of retiring floats into the conversation, the affable Butler turns feisty. The thought does not enter his head, and his body, he says, hasn't given him any reason to entertain the thought of life after basketball. "No, I don't," Butler sternly said when asked whether basketball afterlife is something he thinks about. "I feel like this is the part of the process right now, having been out of the league for a year now. If this is what it takes for me to ultimately get back to what I want to do, I'm all right with that." Philadelphia Inquirer
