Toshiba Brave Thunders Kanagawa (NBL) strengthened their roster with addition of 31-year old American center Brian Butch (211-109kg-84, college: Wisconsin). He played most recently at Al Sharjah in UAE D1 league.
The previous (2014) summer Butch played at Meralco Bolts (PBA) in Filipino league. In 6 games he recorded very impressive stats: 27.5ppg, 21.0rpg, 2.0apg, 1.3spg and 2.3bpg in 2014 season. The last (2014) season he played at Fort Wayne Mad Ants in D-League. In 8 games he averaged 7.9ppg, 4.1rpg and 1.4apg in 2013-14 season.
In the summer of 2013 Butch was tested by Atleticos (BSN) in Puerto Rican league. In two games he averaged 8.5ppg, 6.0rpg, 3.0apg and 1.5spg in 2013 season. The last (2013) season he played at Bakersfield Jam in D-League. In 49 games he averaged 12.9ppg, 10.9rpg, 1.5apg and 1.0bpg in 2012-13 season. He helped them to win the West Conference title. Great season indeed as he was selected All-D-League Center of the Year and voted to 1st Team.
In 11-12 season Butch was tested by the Pelicans in NBA. He received D-League Impact Player of the Year award back in 2010. Butch represented USA at the Panamerican Games in Guadalajara (Mexico) four years ago. His team won Bronze and his stats at that event were 4 games: 3.3ppg, 2.0rpg.
Butch has played also professionally in China, Greece (Ilysiakos) and NBA (New Orleans Pelicans and Denver Nuggets).
He attended University of Wisconsin until 2008 and it will be his eighth season as a professional player.
The scouts decsribe him following way: An inside player who can spend time in the 4 and 5 positions. Has a good touch front to the basket and he's enough tough to defend inside at Euroleague level.
