The Miami Heat will be getting a boost soon as Dion Waiters is ready to make his season debut for the team.

Waiters underwent ankle surgery and has been sidelined since, forcing him to miss the season so far, and has not played for more that a year.

Waiters claims he had an incredible stint with the Sioux Falls Skyforce in the G League, the Heat’s affiliate.

The Miami Heat recently picked up the fourth-year option on the contract of center Bam Adebayo, who is thrilled to see further commitment from the team.

Adebayo, the Heat’s starter at center, will make $3.5 million this season, and is now guaranteed $5.1 million in the 2020-2021 season.

“It’s definitely a confidence builder,” Adebayo said, according to Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel. “It’s one of those things that a lot of guys don’t get to see, but I’m glad it happened to me. So we’re going to keep this thing going and see if we can win some more games.”

Adebayo collected 8.9 points, 7.3 rebounds and 2.2 assists last season for Miami.

The Miami Heat have traded center Hassan Whiteside to the Portland Trail Blazers, according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.

Whiteside had fallen out of favor with Heat head coach Erik Spoelstra due to a drop in his minutes, so it makes sense that the Heat shipped him out of town.

A three-team trade that would have sent Jimmy Butler from the Philadelphia 76ers to the Miami Heat is reportedly off for now.

According to The Athletic’s Tim Cato, the three-team trade between the 76ers, Heat, and Dallas Mavericks sending Butler down to Miami is off, and the Heat must now find a team other than Dallas to complete the deal.

Dallas had agreed to be the third team in the trade, with the understanding that they would get Derrick Jones Jr., but the Heat instead wanted to ship Goran Dragic to Dallas.

Dallas eventually backed off the deal saying that absorbing his deal would be too much, according to the New York Times’ Marc Stein.
