Butler Officially Signs

The Oklahoma City Thunder have signed forward Caron Butler to a contract, it was announced today by Executive Vice President and General Manager Sam Presti. Per team policy, terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Butler (6-7, 217), a two-time NBA All-Star, has appeared in 764 career regular season games (710 starts) and recorded averages of 15.3 points, 5.4 rebounds, 2.5 assists and 1.42 steals in 33.9 minutes per game during his 12-year NBA career.

"We are pleased to welcome Caron Butler to the Thunder organization and to Oklahoma City," said Presti. "Caron represents what we look for in a Thunder player and will positively impact our team. His toughness, hard-nosed defense, resiliency and highly regarded professionalism will only enhance our depth and bring additional versatility to the roster."

The 10th overall selection in the 2002 NBA Draft, he has appeared in 47 career postseason games (all starts) and posted averages of 13.7 points, 6.1 rebounds, 1.9 assists and 1.45 steals in 34.6 minutes per game.

Thabo Sefolosha left Friday's game against the Memphis Grizzlies with what the team called a strained calf.

Thunder coach Scott Brooks announced that OKC's starting shooting guard will not play against the Charlotte Bobcats on Sunday. 

Sefolosha is averaging 6.7 points and 3.7 rebounds this season.
