Dion Waiters Signs $2.9 Million Deal With Miami Heat

Dion Waiters Signs $2.9 Million Deal With Miami Heat

Dion Waiters has agreed to leave the Oklahoma City Thunder and signed a one-year deal worth $2.9 million with the Miami Heat’s Room Exception.

Also according to the report by the Associated Press, Waiters will be with the team for one year but will also be given the option for the second year, which will then bring up his salary to $6 million.

It seems to be part of the team’s campaign to replace Dwayne Wade, who joined the Bulls this summer. The Heat will now be facing the next season with Waiters, as well as Goran Dragic, Tyler Johnson and Josh Richardson.

Waiters definitely has yet to improve his game, especially after making several bad decisions on offense in the past as fourth overall pick with the Thunders but perhaps he will have better chemistry with the Heat, hopefully enough to make a much better impression and become a better on-ball defender.

Kevin Durant To Receive “Hero Award” For Helping Paramedics

Kevin Durant To Receive “Hero Award” For Helping Paramedics

Kevin Durant, basketball star and hero of the community?

News has it that the Thunder forward actually helped out the Oklahoma Emergency Medical Services Authority by using his own Ferrari’s flashers to help clear the roads for an ambulance and navigate through the traffic over the weekend.

The EMSA told TMZ, “Kevin’s actions are exactly how we hope citizens help paramedics reach their calls for emergencies. He is a great example of doing his part to help those in need, and he handled it with such modesty.”

They hope to be able to give Durant the coveted “Everyday Hero” award–which is usually only given 4 times a year–as soon as possible, amid his busy ballin’ schedule.

Good job, Kevin!

Russell Westbrook will soon be living like a reality star.

The Oklahoma City Thunder star has just spent $4.65 million dollars on (Kourtney Kardashian’s baby daddy) Scott Disick’s home in Bevery Hills. It’s a pretty big deal, because Disick only bought the pad last year… and for only $3.7 million.

As for the house, it’s 4,000 sq. feet, has 5 bedrooms, 6 bathrooms, and sick views all around. In fact, a news outlet says you can even spot Catalina Island from far away.

Westbrook in California… Maybe he’s thinking of joining the Lakers? What do you think?

See his new kick ass pad HERE.
