Indiana Pacers Sign Rasual Butler

Free agent forward Rasual Butler has reached an agreement to ink a non-guaranteed deal with the Indiana Pacers, according to his agent Joel Bell. Per RealGM: “Butler played for the Pacers’ summer league team in July and averaged 6.2 points and three rebounds in 13.8 minutes per game. At 6-foot-7, Butler established himself as a strong outside shooter and positive presence over 10 seasons in the NBA – his most recent coming in 2011-12 with the Toronto Raptors. Despite the deal being non-guaranteed, Butler is expected to receive a shot to battle for his standing in training camp and preseason. Butler, 34, also has played with the Miami Heat, New Orleans Pelicans, Los Angeles Clippers and Chicago Bulls over his career, averaging 8.2 points on 35.8 percent three-point shooting and 2.6 rebounds. He was originally the No. 54 pick in the 2002 NBA draft and has worked for opportunities to get back in the league through the D-League and summer league.”

    Amazingly unknown player…Once took my son to a free basketball camp he did at a Y in Delaware. He was late, and b/c I’m kind of tall..(and black) some of the parents were walking up on me askin if I was Rasual…he eventually came and worked w/ the kids (in jeans) for 20-30 mins… Hope it works out for’em.

    Close. He hadn’t played all game, then was called to throw in an inbound pass. A 5-second violation was called. And then he was sent back to the bench.
