3. Rasual Butler gets guaranteed
This was an obvious move for the team, but yesterday, Butler was awarded a fully guaranteed contract. Butler boasts one of the best three-point shooting percentages in the NBA and his ability to come off the bench cold and instantly get hot is something that this team values incredibly.
Needless to say, Butler has been huge coming off the bench all season long since he took Glen Rice Jr.'s spot in the rotation after Rice's shouting match with Randy Wittman earlier this season. This was a deserved achievement for the 35-year old and here's hoping his hot shooting continues all season long.
