Butler shot 44.1 percent from behind the three-point line after signing with the Oklahoma City Thunder in March. The Pistons had a serious floor-spacing problem last season, and new president and head coach Stan Van Gundy has clearly made it his mission to fix that. First, he signed Jodie Meeks to a three-year, $19 million deal. Now, there's this and the D.J. Augustin deal.
Detroit will have better shooting next season, and it will have some proven veterans in the locker room. It's unclear, though, whether or not this is the best long-term plan for the franchise, or if it'll be worth it to give guys like Butler and Meeks contracts that look like they're higher than market value.
