Dion Waiters‘ latest six-game suspension with the Heat will be over after Monday night’s game, but there’s no resolution in sight for the standoff between the team and the veteran guard, writes ESPN’s Bobby Marks (Insider link). Miami wants to find a way to move on from Waiters, but is reluctant to waive him outright and has had no luck finding a trade partner.

“The Waiters contract is as close to untradeable that I have ever seen in the NBA,” one league executive told Marks.

That might be an exaggeration, as Waiters’ $12.1M cap hit this season and $12.65M salary for 2020-21 aren’t as onerous as the figures we’ve seen on some multiyear contracts moved in the past. Still, Waiters certainly has negative trade value, and the Heat are unwilling to attach any of their promising young players like Tyler Herro, Kendrick Nunn or Duncan Robinson to make a deal happen, Marks writes.

Snowstorm to disrupt Thanksgiving travel for millions

  Snowstorm to disrupt Thanksgiving travel for millions Scenes of nature's fury are beginning to stretch for miles, coast to coast , as drivers brace for dangerous roads to get home for the holiday, reports CBS News correspondent Barry Petersen. In Salt Lake City, only cars with four-wheel drive and tires with chains are allowed on roads. Emergency crews responded to more than 50 crashes Monday. Shoppers from California to Michigan are scrambling to get storm supplies. In Denver, grocery store cashier Tamara Oliver said they have been hit twice as hard since people are also shopping for their Thanksgiving dinner.

Winter driving in Alberta can be treacherous. Blowing snow can make for white-out conditions and adding slick roads in the mix can be down right dangerous. As Canadians get ready for another season of snowy days ahead, thousands will invest in new tires, not realizing they could be four or five years

Miami’s ability to offer a first-round pick as a sweetener is also limited, since the team owes a pair of future first-rounders to Oklahoma City. On top of that, the Heat don’t want to take on any money that stretches beyond next season, since they want to keep their books as clean as possible to pursue a star free agent such as Giannis Antetokounmpo in the summer of 2021. And they can’t take on any extra salary this season due to their hard cap.

All those roadblocks add up to make a Waiters trade a difficult proposition, but a buyout appears no more viable. According to Marks, every team he spoke to at last week’s G League Showcase in Las Vegas believes that Waiters’ NBA career is likely over, so the 28-year-old won’t be motivated to give back any of his salary.

With Waiters set to become eligible to return from his latest suspension after Monday’s game, we’ll see if the Heat take any action with him this week — having him remain away from the team while still receiving his salary would be one option. Barring an unlikely turn of events, he has probably played his last game for the franchise.
