Rasual Butler was drafted in 2002 by the Miami Heat, and he was on a total of eight teams over his multi season career in the NBA. He was first known to play basketball in college, where he broke records for scoring, and was one of the highest scorers of all time. He was chosen for many all star teams over the course of his college career.
Butler then went on to be drafted by the NBA, and he first joined the Heat as the 53rd pick. He then continued on a journey that included over a dozen teams, including the Celtics, the Jazz, and others.
He went up and down in terms of scoring during his career. Some seasons were better than others, and in 2013, he had to join the NBA development league before later returning to the NBA to join the Pacers, then the Wizards and the Spurs. His last season in the game was with the Timberwolves. Given that he was not a hugely known player, he didn’t earn a huge salary during his time with the NBA, and he was eventually let go in 2016.
Since being in the NBA, he was involved in a few outside ventures, including appearing in a music video, and on TV. However, the vast majority of his net worth came from his NBA career.
Butler was found dead after his $100,000+ Range Rover crashed into a parking lot. In all, we estimate Rasual Butler net worth at the time of his death at $3 million.
