Caron Butler was waived by the Milwaukee Bucks on Thursday and looks set to swap the bottom of the NBA standings for a shot at the title.

Per sources, the two-time All-Star has agreed to sign with the Oklahoma City Thunder once his waivers are cleared this weekend.

The Thunder did not make any moves on trade deadline day last week, meaning they still have two open roster spots and sit around $2.3 million under the luxury tax line.

Butler is set to join Durant, Westbrook and co after averaging 11 points and 4.6 rebounds in 34 appearances at the leagues worst team. 

Butler will likely be used as an option from the bench to allow Durant to take some minutes off court, and will provide a veteran scoring option that boosts the Thunders title challenge.

It was rumored that the 2002 draftee had been in discussion with the Heat, Spurs and Bulls also.
