Miami Heat are reportedly in the lead of the race to sign Caron Butler, according to ESPN's Marc Stein.

Butler and his agent brought out his contract with the Milwaukee Bucks earlier this week and is set to sign with the heat.

Although 33 and having a fairly ineffective season for the Bucks, he can still create shots, to the relief of a growing list of injured Heat players.

Butler, who was part of the Dallas Mavericks 2011 winning team despite lots of injuries, had also been rumoured to go the San Antonio Spurs.

He is unable to sign for the Phoenix Suns and the LA Clippers who have already traded him before the seasons started.

With Butler going to the Heat, this now leaves the Spurs and the Clippers battling over 76ers Danny Granger.

The 30-year-old Philadelphia player is also in talks for a contract buyout.

The veteran wants to jump the gun as he isn't a free agent until the summer. But being lumbered now on a team with a woeful record, he's ready to jump ship and presumably forfeit some of the $14 million contract he has.
