Guy was the starting PF on the best 2nd half team. shooting over 40% from 3. Lets give 50mil to another center and start him as PF, should be interesting.

One big misconception about Babbitt is that he just stands around and shoots 3s.. he actually runs all over the court to get open.. there is some stats about how he's one of the tops in NBA for total distance run among people like Steph Curry. And he tries on defense. He'll probably do well in a system team like the Hawks

I liked him for what he was but there really is nothing for him here anymore

Hopefully it doesn't hurt our spacing. Especially if Winslow starts at SF.

I wanted him to stay as a third string PF playing maybe 10min a game shooting 40+% from 3 . Oh well hopefully we don't miss him to much...

The more you know fact: " In 2017 he shoot 50,9% from 3pt "

You don't even notice because he's usually done in 1st quarter. LOL

Other fun facts: Pau Gasol led the league in 3PFG% @ 54% and got rewarded with a 48 mil contract :crazy:

Babbitt was tied for 12th with Klay Thompson @ 41%. Definitely elite as a spot up shooter and will be missed for shooting and other lols

I wish the Heat could have found a way to keep Babbit or Reed. They were good insurance incase of other player absence.

For as much depth as the Heat have, if they suffer an injury or two they become pretty thin. Most playoff teams are able to compensate injuries with their stars stepping up, but the Heat don't really have that luxury.

Yeah, idk how Olink will be as the starting 4, when he seemed to play best at 5 in Boston. Or maybe they plan on using him more as a back-up 5, but that would be a pretty limited role for his pay...
