NBA Rumors: Caron Butler to debut for Oklahoma City Thunder Tuesday


After he was bought out by the Milwaukee Bucks, veteran swingman Caron Butler was expected to have his pick of title contenders.

There was obviously no shortage of suitors and Butler eventually settled on signing with the Oklahoma City Thunder. The Thunder, who played in the 2012 NBA Finlas, losing to the Miami Heat in five games, have the best record in the Western Conference and are the favorite to win the west this year.

Butler is scheduled to touch down in Oklahoma City Sunday, but won’t play when the Thunder host the Charlotte Bobcats Sunday night.

Butler averaged 11.0 points, 4.6 rebounds and 1.6 assists in 24.1 minutes per game in 34 games for the Bucks this season.
