    What a great deal for Heat, that is why they do not want to resign Wade.

    Waiters isn't good, but he's much better than 2.9 mil.

    Waiters Island off the coast of South Beach. Seems like fate.

    Dion Waiters epitomizes a Pat Riley player.

    Waiters has potential. Would've loved him off the bench spotting minutes for Harden

    Dion Waiters had a decently good playoff run. He played good defense. I'm surprised he wasn't offered more, his agent def screwed up.

    Offense-only player with an inconsistent shot. Not shocked at this.

    This is true but he seemed to learn a bit from playing for Donovan, and he will certainly learn from playing for Spoelstra. The Heat have a good culture I feel and this could give him a shot to really mature, who knows.

    I think this is good for the Heat. With Wade gone and Dragic easily capable of taking on a bigger load than last season, it might work out very nicely.

    Woj is saying it's 2 years 6m with player option on year 2.

    hahaha, he should have took OKC's qualifying offer (before they rescinded it). The qualifying offer was $6.8 million for 1 year.

    He had size power and strength and actually could play despite what people here thought. Closest thing available in the free agent market to replace D-Wade.

    What??? His defense is actually pretty solid. He gets after it on that end.

    OKC's qualifying offer was $6.8 mill and he turned it down. So yeah, he and his agent screwed the pooch.
