Milwaukee Bucks wingman Caron Butler is expected to buy out his contract, according to reports.
Once he hits waivers, the Miami Heat are considered the favorite to sign him.
There was a growing sense in NBA front-office circles Tuesday night that Butler is likely to land with Miami,
wrote Marc Stein of ESPN.com.
The Heat would need to clear a roster spot, having used the one vacated by Roger Mason Jr. on DeAndre Liggins.
Miami would likely part ways with either Liggins, who is on a 10-day contract, or Toney Douglas.
Douglas is on an expiring deal and is the third point guard on a depth chart with many facilitators elsewhere.
