    Pistons F Caron Butler would like to return next season

    Pistons forward Caron Butler said he feels playing in Detroit is a good fit for him, reports the Detroit Free Press. "I'm in a good situation," he said. "I like where we're at. I like what we've been able to accomplish, being better than we were prior, and I feel like I've got my fingerprints all over these guys. So it's a great opportunity to come back and continue the thing on." Despite coming off a career low in points and minutes, Butler said if he doesn't play for the Pistons next season, he would like to play for a contender. "If not, obviously, the best thing for me is to contend," Butler said. "It's either one or the other. But I won't be looking for another situation to start over with some guys and stuff like that again. It's either do this or contend for it all."
