Heat Reportedly Ink Dion Waiters to One-Year, $2.9 Million Deal

Make room for Waiters Island in South Beach.

The Miami Heat have reportedly come to terms with Dion Waiters on a one-year, $2.9 million pact.

Waiters, 24, put up a shade under 10 points per night in Oklahoma City last season.

Per the AP:

The two sides came to agreement on Monday. Waiters will make $2.9 million. The people spoke on condition of anonymity because the team has not announced the deal.


Waiters averaged 9.8 points for the Oklahoma City Thunder last year, but had several big games in the playoffs. He played particularly well against Dallas and San Antonio in the playoffs before his role was reduced in the seven-game loss to the Golden State Warriors in the Western Conference finals.


Waiters will give the Heat another scorer off the bench.
