The Bucks interest in Caron Butler has reportedly waned significantly from the point that we were at a week or so ago, but that doesn’t mean that there still aren’t deals out there that could see him end up as a Buck.

The play of Rajon Rondo has likely altered many of Sacramento’s current plans, and could set the table for what their offseason looks like. Rondo is playing like a player who warrants being viewed as a franchise’s lead point guard again, and the Kings could pay him as such this summer.

If that is indeed their plan, does that not negate the need for Darren Collison somewhat? Collison is an excellent backup, but with Rondo as the priority, it may be in Sacramento’s interest to clear as much cap space as possible.

Bayless would offer them an effective cover for Rondo in the interim, filling in the void Collison would leave, while with injuries a problem for Willie Cauley-Stein and Eric Moreland, and Kosta Koufos occasionally stepping in and playing at power forward, Plumlee could help round out the Kings front court depth.

If questions persist over MCW, Darren Collison could be a point guard to offer a viable alternative with both his ability and his play style, while Butler’s veteran influence certainly wouldn’t hurt in the locker room.
