Heat Waive Derrick Williams, Sign Okaro White to 2yr Deal

The Heat have now won 11 straight games with their 115-113 win over the Memphis Grizzlies but one player on the team won’t be with them to help them anymore. That player is the former New York Knick Derrick Williams who was picked up as a free agent prior to the season. Williams was waived in favor of rookie forward Okaro White from Florida State. 

White was signed to a 2 year deal, if Williams isn’t claimed off of waivers then the Heat will have to dish out $5 million because of contract obligations. White’s contract has him covered for the remainder of the season.
