07:17 AM ET 08.23 | At first, Caron Butler was thrilled to learn about a new head coach in Los Angeles -- and then everything changed pretty quickly on July 10. Butler was at his offseason home in Washington D.C. with his wife and three young daughters when he received a phone call from his agent. He had been traded. ... Butler soon saw the news on the crawl on TV. No one from the Clippers' front office has called him, Butler said. "I don't leave with bitterness or anything, but a phone call would have helped the situation," said Butler, who two summers ago signed a three-year, $24 million free-agent deal to play for the Clippers before the club's fortuitous, franchise-changing trade for CP3. "But it's cool, it's no hard feelings because that's the nature of the business."
