We knew the Sacramento Kings weren't done making changes to the roster, and now we know the next move. The Kings have reached an agreement with free agent forward Caron Butler, according to Yahoo's Adrian Wojnarowski.
Caron Butler has agreed to a two year deal with Kings, league source tells Yahoo.— Adrian Wojnarowski (@WojYahooNBA) July 10, 2015
Butler isn't the player he once was, but he's a player with playoff experience, and is known as a strong presence in the locker room. We don't know how this offseason's moves might translate to wins, but the Kings have certainly added players who have been in winning organizations and know what it takes to succeed in the NBA.
We don't yet know the specifics of the contract for Butler. I'm curious to see if it took the remaining cap space, or if even more moves are coming. Quick, someone find Vivek to see if he's shaved.
Update: We have contract details.
Caron Butler's deal w/Kings is two years, $3 million w/player option on second year, per person with info on deal. @WojYahooNBA first w/news— Jeff Zillgitt (@JeffZillgitt) July 10, 2015
I like this Butler at this price. And for those keeping track at home, this mean the Kings still have about $2 million in cap space. We might not be done yet.
Update 2: I'm not smart. Two years, $3 million total, not $3 million per year, means the Kings have about $3.5 million in remaining cap. Should definitely be another move brewing.
