MILWAUKEE (AP) — The Milwaukee Bucks waived forward Caron Butler on Thursday after agreeing to a contract buyout.

The 33-year-old Butler, from Racine, Wis., made 13 starts and appeared in 34 games this season, averaging 11.0 points, 4.6 rebounds and 1.6 assists.

"It's been a dream come true to wear the Milwaukee uniform, which so many of my idols growing up wore," Butler said in a statement released by the team.

The former Connecticut star has averaged 15.3 points, 5.4 rebounds and 2.5 assists in 764 regular-season games in 12 NBA seasons with Miami, the Los Angeles Lakers, Washington, Dallas, the Los Angeles Clippers and Milwaukee.

The Bucks were at Indiana on Thursday night.
