Dion Waiters is injured, probably behind on his conditioning, stubborn, not that good and due $36.3 million over the next three years.

The Heat are aware.

Five Reasons Sports Network:

Miami factors prominently in the Jimmy Butler trade saga, and Waiters could be part of the deal. He’s a functional wing when healthy, and if they lose Butler, the Timberwolves would need one.

But Waiters has negative value overall. If the Heat really want to move him, they’d probably have to attach a sweetener.
