Milwaukee area native Caron Butler has had a very nice NBA career but one dream was still on his checklist. The 33-year-old wanted to play in front of his hometown crowd. The Phoenix Suns granted him his wish and traded the forward to Milwaukee for Viacheslav Kravtsov and Ish Smith.
Butler's acquisition means added depth at the team's weakest position and another legitimate scoring option.
In 2012-13 Butler averaged 10.4 points, 2.9 rebounds and 1.0 assist on 42.4 percent shooting from the field. Butler also connected on 38.8 percent of the threes he took and started each of the 78 games he appeared in.
Caron Butler’s veteran presence will be a steadying force on a roster that was totally overhauled this offseason.
