Video: Dion Waiters Gives His Thoughts on Lonzo Ball Joining Miami Heat

1 Min Read

As the Miami Heat get ready for the NBA Draft Lottery on Tuesday night, shooting guard Dion Waiters has made it clear that there’s no room for one of the top draft prospects.

The Heat have a 98.2 percent chance of landing the No. 14 pick in the 2017 NBA Draft, but that hasn’t stopped the shooting guard from voicing his opinion.

In a guest appearance on ESPN’s “First Take,” Waiters said that there’s no room for a player like UCLA guard Lonzo Ball.

The panel asked Waiters where some of his favorite landing spots were for the incoming rookie, or if he thought Miami would be a good fit.

“Nah, not Miami,” said Waiters, “We got The Dragon (Goran Dragic). We got Tyler Johnson. We got a bunch of dogs in Miami. You’ve got to be able to be a dog to come over there.”

Even though he seemed to take a swipe at Ball’s toughness, Waiters went on to express his support for the budding NBA prospect:

“I respect everything he’s doing,” said Waiters.
