According to a report from the Racine Journal-Times, Caron Butlers role as veteran leader of the Suns may be preempted by a trade to the Milwaukee Bucks. Butler, a 33-year-old, 11-year NBA veteran who came over to Phoenix as part of a deal in which the Suns acquired guard Eric Bledsoe, is the centerpiece of an anticipated deal between the two teams. The report didnt provide details relative to the possible compensation returning to the Suns. With Butler's expiring contract worth 8 million this season and the Bucks about 7 million under the cap, the Suns would need to take back a minor contract to make the deal work. But for them to have any interest in making such a move, they're expected to require draft considerations in this transaction. Butler is a native of Racine and -- with Carlos Delfinos health at issue -- would figure to be the starter for the Bucks at small forward. He also was expected to fill the same role for the Suns.
