The Spurs made their call, and it’s the veteran 3&D guy Butler, reports Shams Charania of Yahoo Sports.
Williams has been on the NBA bubble since his knee surgery a few years back — he has put up good numbers in the D-League but struggled once stepping up to the big stage.
In the end, the win-now Spurs went with the veteran they know they can trust. Butler shot 38.7 percent from three last season with the Wizards, and he’s solid on the defensive end. He’s the kind of player who finds a home in the Spurs’ system. You know he’ll make a few plays for them this season.
