  • Caron Butler: Waived by Kings
    By RotoWire Staff

    Butler was waived by the Kings on Monday, Shams Charania of Yahoo! Sports reports. Butler recently exercised a $1.55 million player option for the 2016-17 season, so the Kings should still have to pay his salary despite letting him go. It does offer the Kings another roster spot, which they could use to shore up some depth options elsewhere on the roster. The 36-year-old could find a deal with a contender looking for some veteran leadership off the bench.

  • Butler announced Tuesday that he would exercise his $1.55 million player option for the 2016-17 season, Shams Charania of Yahoo! Sports reports. At this stage of his career, the 36-year-old Butler is little more than a positive veteran influence in the locker room, and the 2016-17 campaign could represent his final year in the league. Butler appeared in 17 contests with the Kings last season, averaging 3.7 points, 1.3 rebounds and 0.6 assists across 10.4 minutes per game. With the Kings likely to continue prioritizing the development of their younger wing players over Butler, don't expect the aging small forward to see much action during the upcoming season.

  • Kings' Caron Butler: Out for season finale
    By RotoWire Staff

    Butler will not play in the Kings' season finale Wednesday, Jason Jones of the Sacramento Bee reports. Butler will end the season having played in only 17 games and posting averages of 3.7 points and 1.3 rebounds. At age 36, Butler may considering hanging it up this summer, though he does hold a $1.5M player option to return to Sacramento next season. If Butler opts against retirement, it's possible he could decline the option and look to join a contending organization.

  • Butler played eight minutes in Tuesday's 115-107 loss to the Trail Blazers, contributing two points (1-1 FG). Butler saw some run with five rotation members sitting out Tuesday due to rest or injury, but still didn't get enough minutes to make a real impact in the box score. The Kings figure to hold some key players out of the remaining four games while the team finishes out another lottery-bound season, but expect coach George Karl to give younger reserves like James Anderson and Ben McLemore more opportunities rather than the 36-year-old Butler.

  • Kings' Caron Butler: Plays 18 minutes Friday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Butler contributed nine points (2-4 FG, 5-5 FT), four rebounds, and two assists in 18 minutes during the Kings' 115-108 loss to the Pistons on Friday. Butler's nine points were a season high, and his four rebounds and two assists both matched season highs as well. Butler has appeared in four of the last six games, but the 36-year-old is strictly a veteran voice in the locker room at this stage of his career.
