Within the organization, there was some relief that Waiters was suspended, a signal that his antics won’t be tolerated. The main issue for Waiters appears to be the deterioration of his minutes, which probably won’t improve much with the rise of rookie guard Tyler Herro, a potential starter.

I just want everybody to know that.”

Daffy wrote:I dislike Dion Waiters's game as much as many of you but this is a good signing. Low risk high reward. He's still only 24 years old. I understand being upset that he's taking minutes away from Johnson, Winslow, Richardson, but being upset over guys like Mcgruder is ridiculous. End of the day we need to harvest as much talent as possible. Who knows maybe he becomes a solid player for us or a tradable asset. We have no draft picks in a few drafts. We need young talent. JR Smith was once looked at like Dion Waiters and he's serviceable now. Hassan Whiteside.

That post was like wiping out on the final turn of the last lap at Daytona while leading the race. He was going good but then he slipped on a patch of JR Smith and ate the wall. :lol:

It was funny in 2013. It was funny in 2016. And it's still funny in 2019.

Wildlinger wrote:I really don't want Waiters next to Hassan, Justise, TJ and JRich. A few weeks ago Skolnick said on one of his shows that he talked to a very well respected Cavs veteran, who said Waiters was the absolutely worst teammate he ever had. Not even close. Just a bad locker room guy and a bad influence on young guys. Skolnick didn't name his source, but I'm almost certain it was James Jones. And according to Scolnick he's not alone. Players who played with Waiters don't like him. Let's hope Heat can keep Waiters in check, but chemistry wise I really don't like this signing. He does have some talent though, it's just not worth the trouble.
