Dion Waiters makes it clear that he wants to re-sign with Heat
Taking a bet on himself, Dion Waiters signed a two-year deal with the Miami Heat last summer. The second year of his deal was a player option, so Waiters could opt out this summer and either re-sign with the Heat or sign with another team. Waiters agreed to this deal because he believed that he could earn more money after playing at a high level in the first year of his contract with the Heat.
This was a rather bold move by Waiters but it paid off. Waiters had a career year with the Heat and could earn plenty of money as a free agent this summer. But Waiters doesn’t want to leave the Heat. He wants to re-sign with Miami and build on his career year.
From the Palm Beach Post’s Anthony Chiang:
“I want to be there,” Waiters said Thursday when asked if he wants to return to the Heat during an appearance on The Hochman and Crowder Show on WQAM. “When that time comes and we sit down, we just got to make it happen. Let’s get it over with as quick as possible.”
“I think I’ll be back [with the Heat],” Waiters said on WQAM. “We just got to make it work and hopefully everything can come together full circle.”
“The things that they preach to us and really speaking it into existence, and being able to really buy in and see the results,” Waiters said on WQAM. “I think once you start seeing the results, you start to trust the process more. That was my whole thing. My thing was about seeing the results. When I listen and I’m locked in, you see the results. And as far as my body, just being able to maintain the weight that I lost to help my play was huge for me.”
We will see this upcoming summer if Waiters can get his wish and re-sign with the Heat.
