Caron Butler ponders future with Thunder Published: June 4, 2014

One of the mysteries of this week's Thunder exit interviews was where Caron Butler ran off to.

The Thunder swingman skipped town without sitting down with the media Sunday. The former Washington Wizards got a (long distance) call from Michael Lee of the Washington Post, and Butler talked about his uncertain future with the Thunder.

"I don't know," Butler said when asked what he thought about his future. "I have to sit back and think about some things. It's going to be a minute before I get over this one, though."

Butler also talked about why he chose to sign with the Thunder after being bought out by the Milwaukee Bucks in midseason.

“It was attractive,” Butler said. “Looking at Russell [Westbrook], looking at Kevin [Durant] and those guys and just having the opportunity to fit in and play and play some productive minutes and I was able to do that and had a lot of fun.

“That’s one of the reasons I came here. High expectations,” he said. “An opportunity to go to the Finals and have a chance to win it all. We was two wins away from being on the big stage. Fell a little short. Real unfortunate, but life goes on.”
