Acquire Caron Butler and Shawne Williams
The Milwaukee Bucks have traded power forward Ersan Ilyasova to the Detroit Pistons for Caron Bulter and Shawne Williams.
The trade is unofficial at this point.
The trade looks to be almost exclusively a salary dump. Ilyasova will make $7.9 million next season, the last year of his contract - though he does have a team option for around $8.4 million the following season. Meanwhile, Butler and Williams will most surely be let go by the team.
Butler, who was a disgruntled Buck during its 15-win season, has a $4.5 million team option and Williams' contract is not guaranteed.
Ilyasova shot 47.2 percent from the field and 38.9 from deep in averaging 11.5 points last season, but never lived up to the expectations of the contract he signed coming off a 13-point, 8.8-rebound season in 2011-12.
The trade does make more room for Jabrari Parker, who tore his left ACL last December during his rookie campaign.
