The Heat have waived Rodney McGruder.
This was one bomb that MacGruber could not defuse in time. This was an odd move, but the Heat had until 5 PM Eastern to waive his contract in order to get under the luxury tax. The contract still needs to be picked up by a team, but it’s likely that it will. The team that picks him up will get a hardworking player that can guard multiple positions, but also get Bird Rights, matching rights and a low cap hold for this summer. He is not eligible for the playoffs this year, but there is certainly enough intrigue to assume he will be claimed.
