Report: Butler to ink deal with Clippers


Well so much for free agent small forward Caron Butler taking his talents to the Alamo City.

According to report from David Aldridge, Butler has agreed to sign with the Los Angeles Clippers to the tune of $24 million for three years.

This whittles down the San Antonio Spurs’ list of possible replacement for soon-to-be-gone Richard Jefferson after reports surfaced yesterday that San Antonio will use their amnesty clause on Jefferson.

Now the field is likely down to either Josh Howard or Grant Hill. The Spurs are reportedly still interested in Hill and Howard did state the Spurs expressed their desire to have him on the team.

Also, the Spurs reportedly showed interest in Tayshaun Prince and Shane Battier but Prince will re-sign with the Pistons and Battier is off to join the Heat.

What do you have to say Spurs fans? It seems it might come down to Howard or Hill. Which of these two players would you want the Spurs to sign or is there another player you feel the Spurs should target?
