Default Clippers buy out Rasual Butler, will sign with Bulls

Not sure if posted

Quote:
The Los Angeles Clippers have bought out Rasual Butler, and he plans to sign with the Chicago Bulls, a league source told ESPN The Magazine's Ric Bucher.

Butler must clear waivers before he can sign with the Bulls.

Butler had the best scoring season of his career in 2009-10, averaging 11.9 points and 2.9 rebounds. This season he's averaged 5.0 points and 1.9 rebounds.

Butler is making $2.4 million in the last year of his contract.

Honestly, he isn't that much of an upgrade over Bogans. An upgrade for sure, but not that much. Bulls fans shouldn't be TOO excited about this. Maybe I will eat more words later, but for now, I don't think this is something to get giddy about.

^ He's a swingman, plays both 2 and 3.he's a good spot up shooter from 3 point range. VDN never plays him. He was my fav player on clippers last year after camby was traded.

I decided to look up his last stats, last year he was hitting 2 threes a game and 11 point per game, and stands at 6 feet 7...

whats his defense like? would he fit well next to rose?

This. Bulls fans will quickly see why I was defending Bogans' lack of point volume since he didn't chuck. Butler will score more, but he chucks and ends up being worse overall anyway.

Butler's been little more than a towel boy this season. I guess all the Bogans hate finally got to the front office though.

Sometimes a player catches fire with a change of scenery but I can't think of any particular reason why Butler improves that team in a meaningful way.
