The Phoenix Suns have agreed to trade Caron Butler to the Milwaukee Bucks for Ish Smith and Slava Kravtsov.

Butler has found appealing the prospect of playing for his home-state team. He was traded from the Los Angeles Clippers to the Suns seven weeks ago and was expected to bring leadership to Phoenix.

Butler, 33, will make $8 million this season on an expriring contract but the Bucks could absorb most of that with $7.5 million of cap space.

It is unclear what the Suns have planned for Smith and Kravtsov.

The Phoenix Suns gained $5.65 million of cap space for any potential in-season trades by making the Caron Butler deal with the Milwaukee Bucks.

They appear likely to use that money to make an expected costly waiver of Michael Beasley more palatable.

Beasley would be owed $9 million of guaranteed salary.
