The Miami Heat have made their first of their offseason commitments, with Josh Richardson’s $1.5 million 2017-18 salary to become guaranteed Friday and the team to meet Okaro White’s $226,000 partial-guarantee Saturday deadline. For Richardson, it is the first of two contract deadlines this offseason, with the third-year guard also eligible in August for a four-year extension.
Instead, the Heat decided to use that extra roster slot on a positional need to sign forward Okaro White from Sioux Falls to a 10-day contract. “Of course it’s frustrating because I wanted to be a part of that team,” Weber said of never getting a chance to play for the Heat this season. “I wanted to help that team do the big things that we talked about in the preseason. But at the same time, at the moment they needed what they needed. I couldn’t fault them for doing what they had to do. At the end of the day, it’s business and it’s basketball. So they did what they needed to do. It’s obviously worked for them and I’m happy for everybody on the team. I talk to them daily. It’s just weird being on the other side.”
Andrew Bogut left his first game as a Cavalier with a left leg injury, unable to put any weight on it and needing help from teammates to get to the locker room. Bogut, 32, suffered the injury at the 11:38 mark of the second quarter. He was called for a foul running out to the perimeter to guard Okaro White and came up lame, hobbling before going to the court.
