Dion Waiters Says Miami Heat Don’t Need Lonzo Ball
Never one to shy away from a strong opinion, Miami Heat guard Dion Waiters believes former UCLA point guard Lonzo Ball wouldn’t be a good fit with his franchise.
During an appearance on Tuesday’s episode of ESPN’s First Take (via Ryne Nelson of SLAM), Waiters had a quick and simple response when asked if Miami would be a good fit for Ball,.
“Nah, not Miami,” he said. “We got The Dragon. We got Tyler Johnson. We got a bunch of dogs in Miami. You got to be a dog to come over there.”
The Heat will be part of the NBA draft lottery Tuesday night after just missing the playoffs with a 41-41 record. They have the lowest odds to win the first pick at 0.5 percent, per ESPN.com.
