In his final 20 games last season, Dion Waiters averaged 17.1 points per game, shot 40.7 percent from three, and the team was +5.7 per 48 minutes he was on the court. Waiters was a key reason the Heat turned the season around in the second half (just missing out on the playoffs). Miami rewarded him with a four-year, $52 million contract. This season Waiters is averaging 15 points a game on 39 percent shooting overall and 31.1 percent from three. The Heat are outscored by 5.3 points per 100 possessions when he is on the court, and he is not lifting up a Miami offense that is 27th in the NBA this season.
