After three seasons in Washington, Butler was traded to the Portland Trail Blazers along with Rasheed Wallace in exchange for Rod Strickland and Harvey Grant. Following his stint playing for the Blazers, he signed as a free agent with the Cleveland Cavaliers. Following the 1999 season, Butler did not play in the NBA for two years. In 2001–02, Butler signed with the Trail Blazers, marking his second stint with the franchise. Mitchell's last year in the league was in the 2003–04 season, when he once again played for the D.C. franchise, now renamed the Washington Wizards. Butler played in a total of 362 NBA games with 33 starts. He owns career averages of 5.2 points, 2 rebounds, and 1 assist.
