RACINE, Wis. (AP) - Newly acquired veteran Caron Butler will be expected to provide more than points for a retooled Milwaukee Bucks team that is firmly committed to a young nucleus.
Butler was introduced Thursday as a member of the Bucks at a hometown news conference at Racine Park High School, where he had played.
The Bucks acquired the 33-year-old small forward Aug. 29 in a trade with the Phoenix Suns for point guard Ish Smith and center Viacheslav Kravtsov. Butler, who started last season for a Los Angeles Clippers team that won 56 games, was traded to the Suns earlier this summer in a three-way deal that also involved the Bucks.
Butler, a two-time All-Star who has averaged 15. 5 points over his career, averaged 10.4 last season with the Clippers.
