heatSHOOTING Guard: 6’4, 225 lbs; 5th year, Syracuse 

NBA Role: irrationally confident, scoring two guard • MIA Depth Chart: INJ. (ankle)

Dion Waiters has NEVER met a shot he hasn’t liked; skilled, yet streaky shooter best utilized as a playmaker/shot creator at the two; good athlete and scorer – Waiters should use his strong frame to soak up contact in the paint (more often); #neverchange • Dion’s known to launch contested jumpers from time to time*; one of the top, ‘rock up, shoot’ guys in the game today – Waiters loves rocker step-backs, double crosses & exaggerated step-backs; misread as a selfish player – more than capable of finding the open man – Waiters keeps his head up when penetrating to the cup & loves dumping off passes to rolling bigs or teammates camped out in the dunk zone; West Philadelphia born and raised – has Dion found a home in Miami?
