Free Agent Caron Butler to Meet With Clippers

Caron Butler’s agent confirms to the LA Times that his client will visit with the Clippers to try and see if something can be worked out between the two parties: “The Clippers and free-agent forward Caron Butler will have a face-to-face meeting Monday at the team’s Playa Vista training facility. ‘Yes, Caron is going to come and visit with the Clippers tomorrow,’ Butler’s agent, Raymond Brothers, said in a phone interview Sunday night. Butler, who played for the Dallas Mavericks last season, is the sort of small forward the Clippers hope can fill that void for them … The Clippers have about $13 million to spend wisely on a free agent because they are under the salary cap. Free-agent small forward Tayshaun Prince of the Detroit Pistons also is someone who interests the Clippers. ‘There’s interest with Tayshaun in the Clippers, also,’ Prince’s agent Bill Duffy said. ‘That’s definitely the case.’”

    And let me guess… if it doesn’t work out with the Clippers, he’ll want to sign with the Knicks for the vet’s minimum?

    Clipps are in good position to win, maybe not a title; but playoffs? I can see it

    I don’t think Caron is a great fit for the Clips. He’s a respected veteran that likes to create for himself – EG and Blake will naturally defer to him. Someone like Tayshaun Prince makes more sense for them.

    I guess they don’t believe in their Aminu pick…

    It’s more essential that the Mavs re-sign Chandler than Caron Butler anyways, as good as Butler is. If this means shoring up some more dough for Chandler, the Mavs aren’t in any worse shape.

    I’d go for Prince, too. The Clippers offence isn’t their worry when their healthy.
