Per Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sport, Caron Butler has informed teams that he will be signing with the Oklahoma City Thunder once he clears waivers this afternoon. Terms of the deal were not released.

Players have to be waived by their current teams before March 1st to have to ability to be on the playoff roster for another team.

In 34 games this season for the Milwaukee Bucks, Butler is averaging 11.0 points, 4.6 rebounds, and 1.6 assists in 24 minutes. He is shooting 36.1% from 3-point territory this season. He won a championship with the Dallas Mavericks in 2011, but was not a part of the team’s run in the playoffs due to a ruptured patella. He was an All-Star for the Washington Wizards in 2007 and 2008.

The Thunder will look for Butler to provide scoring and experience off the bench.
