Caron Butler: No One From Clippers Called About Trade

Caron Butler & Blake GriffinCaron Butler was recently traded from the Los Angeles Clippers to the Phoenix Suns, and from a recent quote he doesn’t seem overly pleased with how the Clippers front office managed the situation.

“I don’t leave with bitterness or anything, but a phone call would have helped the situation,” Butler said. “But it’s cool, it’s no hard feelings because that’s the nature of the business.”

Butler’s hard feelings could also be due to leaving a contender with an MVP caliber point-guard, to a young team that is rebuilding. Butler seemed to reminisce about playing for the Clippers, and went on to say:

“It’s a fun team to watch,” Butler continued. “Up-and-down tempo, you look at the high flyers of Blake Griffin, DeAndre Jordan and you’ve got a magician with the ball in Chris Paul. You got shooters around them, you got J.J. Redick, and a great coach and a great coaching staff. You look at that and that’s real appealing, and that’s Hollywood.”
