Caron Butler has exercised his 2016-17 player option, according to Shams Charania of The Vertical.
Butler will pick up his $1.5 million option for next season after playing just 17 games with the Kings in 2015-16. The 36-year-old's best days are obviously behind him and he can be left off 2016-17 fantasy draft boards. Jun 21 - 11:43 AM

Caron Butler (rest) will not suit up for Wednesday's game against the Rockets.

With Rudy Gay also set to spend Wednesday's game on the sidelines, James Anderson figures to earn a start while there will be more minutes available for Willie Cauley-Stein and Eric Moreland. Anderson could be worth a punt in DFS, but Seth Curry is looking like a must-use option.

Caron Butler played 21 minutes vs. the Bulls on Monday, scoring 10 points with two boards, one assist and three steals.

The 21 minutes were a season high, and coach George Karl said after the game that he gave Butler heavy minutes because his family was in attendance. You can't make this stuff up.

The Kings are trying to trade Caron Butler, but haven't found a trade partner yet.

The Kings are still committed to their promise to trade Butler, but the Bucks are reportedly no longer interested. While Butler will likely head to a new location soon, he isn't worth a roster sport in fantasy leagues.

The Bucks could trade for Caron Butler "in the coming day," according to ESPN's Marc Stein.

He's from Racine and wouldn't play much in the twilight of his career. Butler isn't worth stashing.

The Kings have reportedly promised to soon trade Caron Butler to a team where he can get more playing time.

The DNP-CDs have been piling up for Caron, although at this point in his career he's not really capable of logging much more than 20 minutes per game. The Bucks have reportedly emerged as frontrunners to land Caron, and while he would have the opportunity to finish his career in the state he was born, his minutes allotment wouldn't look that much different in Milwaukee's crowded backcourt. Butler's non-existent fantasy value will not change based on the jersey he's wearing.

Caron Butler (ankle) did not play on Saturday vs. the Warriors.

He was listed as probable, but the Kings were blown out of this one and didn't need to throw the veteran out there. He's now healthy, but Butler is not on the fantasy radar.

Caron Butler (ankle) is probable to play on Saturday vs. the Warriors.

Butler likely won't be in the rotation tonight and fantasy owners can continue to ignore him.

Caron Butler (ankle) is questionable to play against the Warriors on Saturday.

He isn't necessarily going to be in the rotation anyway, so fantasy owners can ignore Butler.
Sat, Nov 28, 2015 05:17:00 PM

Caron Butler (ankle) will not suit up for Friday's game against the Timberwolves.

It'll be Butler's second consecutive game on the sidelines, and Omri Casspi will pick up some additional minutes in his absence. Butler isn't worth owning in any league.

Caron Butler (ankle) will not play against the Bucks on Wednesday.

No revenge game here. Butler can be left on the wire in almost all leagues.
Wed, Nov 25, 2015 07:18:00 PM

Caron Butler (sprained left ankle) is questionable for play Wednesday vs. Milwaukee.

Butler isn't a major part of the rotation in Sacramento when Rudy Gay is healthy, so his absence will have a negligible impact on the fantasy landscape. Marco Belinelli and Omri Casspi will likely split his minutes.
Wed, Nov 25, 2015 06:00:00 PM

Caron Butler played 19 minutes in his first start as a King on Friday, scoring five points with four rebounds, two assists, two steals and one 3-pointer.

That's actually not a terrible game. He was out of the rotation before tonight and stepped up with Rudy Gay (illness) out of the lineup. Gay is just day-to-day, so Butler isn't worth a pickup.
Sat, Nov 14, 2015 04:17:00 AM

Caron Butler will start at small forward on Friday night against the Nets.

It'll be his first start with his new team. Butler was out of the rotation before tonight, so fantasy owners shouldn't be expecting much out of him this evening. Expect Omri Casspi to get most of the minutes at small forward.
Fri, Nov 13, 2015 08:27:00 PM

Caron Butler played 13 minutes in his Kings debut, coming off the bench for eight points, two rebounds and one steal.

This sums up the veteran's role in Sacramento, coming off the bench for a handful of minutes as a perimeter threat. It's not a role that lends itself to fantasy utility.
