Former Mavericks, Thunder forward Caron Butler retires
Butler made the announcement via an article he wrote for The Player’s Tribune:
It was 16 years ago when I arrived in Miami to start my NBA career. Back then if you’d told me I was gonna play for nine different teams, for more than a decade and a half, I’d have a look on my face as indescribable as my mom’s on the plane that day
But here I am. It’s been a great ride and truly a blessing. But everything runs its course, even good things. Today, I’m retiring from the NBA.
Butler won a NBA championship as a member of the Mavericks in 2011, but did not get to play in the playoffs after rupturing his right patella tendon earlier in the season.
Butler was a member of the 2014 Oklahoma City Thunder team that reached the Western Conference Finals.
Dallas tweeted a message to Butler Tuesday afternoon on his retirement.
