Dion Waiters signs $5.93 million, 2-year contract with Heat

MIAMI (AP) Shooting guard Dion Waiters has signed a $5.93 million, two-year contract with the Miami Heat, and he'll compete for a starting job as Dwyane Wade's replacement.

Waiters was one of the top free agents left on the market. He became an unrestricted free agent when Oklahoma City rescinded a $6.8 million qualifying offer. The second year of his Miami deal announced Tuesday includes a player option.

Heat President Pat Riley said in a statement that Waiters passed on "more lucrative financial opportunities to be a part of our championship organization."
