Miami Heat Waive Eddie House

With Miami set to open the season tomorrow in a Finals rematch against Dallas, they’ve elected to do so without the services of veteran shooter Eddie House. House, who won an NBA Championship with Boston in 2008, was waived on Friday by the Heat. Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel has the details: ”In a surprising move, the Miami Heat kept two free-agent rookies on their final, 15-player roster, instead opting to waive veteran guard Eddie House. Mickell Gladness, a shot-blocking center out of Alabama A&M who spent time with the Heat in the team’s 2010 summer league, and Terrel Harris, a former Oklahoma State standout who went undrafted in 2009 and had played in recent years in France, Germany and the NBA Development League, both made the final cut by coach Erik Spoelstra and Heat President Pat Riley. House was informed of the move Friday night. ”It was an extremely tough decision,” Spoelstra said of waiving House. “Eddie started his career with us. We drafted him, and he’s part of our Heat family. Pat and I both talked to him last night and those are the toughest decisions you have to make.” Ultimately, it meant the Heat eating the second year of the two-year contact House signed in the 2010 offseason. He was coming off an early-November knee procedure and was not expected to be cleared for a return until next month. With swingman Mike Miller and Shane Battier ailing, it opened the door for Harris.”

    I remember when he joined Miami and said, “This Big Three is better than Boston’s Big Three.” So much for kissin arse…

    The man is a broken down one-trick miniature pony that never works right.

    Never works right? He played a big role in boston winning their chip, obv not as big as the starters but he provided bench offense during offensive droughts, granted his game is seriously one dimensional but he still has a ring that he actually contributed too. That being said it was absolutely horrrible and nerve racking to watch him try to bring the ball up the court and even worse when Ray Allen was trying, they teach you early not to jump when you pass the ball, but these two do it all the time. Miami’s probably clearing some room to get a ball handling pg or a defensive pg

    Combined with the emergence of the rookie Norris Cole and his injury, unfortunately Miami had to waive him. An original Miami Heat , u hate to have to let him go. Hopefully he’ll be picked up by another team. What is the status of Miami adding a big man like Fesenko to the roster?

    “An original Miami Heat”? DJ Rony Seikaly is rolling in his grave…
