The first successful domino may have fallen for a South Beach reunion.

Per Adrian Wojnarowski at ESPN, Dion Waiters is inking a deal for an encore with the Miami Heat to resume his #WaitersIsland stay by South Beach.

Another source reveals the proposed will be worth about $52 million over 4 years. Spending his prime years in a Heat uniform could lead to Miami having a contender for years to come.

Goran Dragic is very happy 7-11 is back in business. They made a great backcourt together duo. Just hope and pray they both stay healthy this season.

More importantly, on a personal level, Dion could use the stability he lacked in his early NBA years. Next follows a decision on fellow Philadelphia native Wayne Ellington.

This July nothing can be taken for granted, but James Johnson: we need you.

Expiring 1-year contracts are a hot item this season as teams are looking to clear space for 2018-19. Just so happens Josh McRoberts has one. He may be able to be moved without stretching his contract. Or if Heat are going to pay him $6 million anyway, buy him out and not suffer $2 million cap hits for three years.

Bam Adebayo 20 years old, Justise Winslow 21, Josh Richardson 23, Tyler Johnson 25, Okaro White(??) 24. These players, under Erik Spoelstra and his corps, could become a force to be reckoned with in the Eastern Conference for years to come.

Dion has some NBA All-Stars as friends. Could Waiters become the Heat’s recruiter-in-chief, if he becomes a star himself?

Dwyane Wade still follows the Heat.

So does KD (Kevin Durant), as he gave DW, part 2, a shout out on his youtube channel.

Should I take full credit for Fly Dre getting paid? Probably not, but I will anyway. You're welcome dre.

Dion, My first born.

I'll always take credit for your success. We both know that.


They work tirelessly and they stress over basketball, that's real love and dedication to something. Once u have that, u get paid for it.
