After much debating about where he was going to take his NBA talents next, the recently bought out Caron Butler has decided that Oklahoma City is where he’ll finish out this 2013-14 NBA season.
According to Adrian Wojnarowski from Yahoo! Sports, the Thunder have agreed to terms with Caron Butler and he should be available this weekend to make his debut.

One of the main thing to take out of this, besides the fact that Oklahoma City has added some veteran wing depth, is the fact that the Miami Heat are now 0-for-2 on free agent buyout pursuits. There were rumors that the Heat were interested in Danny Granger, but pulled off of him to go in on Butler. Now that Granger is in Los Angeles and Butler is on Oklahoma City, the Heat will have to look elsewhere to find depth for the postseason.
As for the Thunder, they found their man and while he doesn’t guarantee a championship, adding Butler clearly doesn’t hurt.
