Breaking news has just surfaced that Caron Butler has come to terms with the Clippers on a three-year deal worth $24 million. According to the Los Angeles Times, Butler's agent, Raymond Brothers, has confirmed that the small forward will leave the Dallas Mavericks in order to sign with the Clippers.
It has been rumored numerous times in the last few weeks that both Los Angeles and Caron Butler were interested in joining forces, but nobody knew how serious the talks between the parties were.
Obviously, there was a mutual understanding between them, as the Clippers have made one of the first free-agent signings.
However, I don't believe this was the right move for a team trying to become relevant again. In the following slides, I will show you why I believe this signing will backfire on the Clippers.
