(Caron) Butler, targeted by (Stan) Van Gundy early in free agency as not only a talented player but a disciple for his message in the locker room, says opposing players are going to see that in this year’s Pistons.

That’s exactly what Van Gundy had in mind when he wasted little time once free agency opened in letting Butler know he was wanted – and needed – by the Pistons.

“He reached out to me immediately and told me he’d love to have me,” he said. “The opportunity to play quality minutes and be a mentor to these guys, share my experiences and get us over the hump was big.”
