The Miami Heat will certainly announce a trade/release/signing tonight. Who will be on the move?
Okaro White’s second 10-day contract with the Miami Heat expires tonight, and after Spoelstra made clear the Heat’s intentions of bringing him back to the roster.
With that said, and knowing Richardson will be back from his injury, the Miami Heat can’t have a 16-player roster anymore. Rumors mentioned Derrick Williams getting released or even traded, but there are no certainties that Williams will leave Miami tonight.
Why should the Heat act tonight?
There’s one simple reason. Okaro White (4.1 PPG, 2.6 RPG and 0.4 BLKPG IN 16.4 Minutes of action Per Game), who played in all of Heat’s last 9 Wins, will be a free-agent, after his contract with Miami expires. With his market value being so high, and with several NBA teams still trying to reach the finnancial requirements before the Trade Deadline, White can signed with any team moments after his free-agency.
Will the Heat stay with White and move someone else, or Okaro’s time in Miami has expired?
