Not only did the Heat call up Whiteside from the NBA Development League last week, but they did it as part of a two-year package that included a $100,000 guarantee and conditional guarantees for 2015-16. In addition, an additional 25 percent of Hamilton's contract became guaranteed Monday. South Florida Sun-Sentinel

"I'm really happy that they chose to make a commitment and I'm all-in," Whiteside said in advance of Monday's game against the Washington Wizards at the Verizon Center. "Like I said, I 100 percent believe in their organization. I mean, if Pat Riley tells me to run to the airport, I'm going to run to the airport. That's how much confidence I have in this."

J.R. Smith played a season-low five and a half minutes in Sunday’s 86-79 loss to Miami, missing all four of his shots from the floor. Afterward, Knicks coach Derek Fisher revealed that Smith was ill on Sunday and had received an IV before the game. “J.R. wasn’t feeling well today,” he said. “I don’t know if it was a virus or something that impacted him throughout the day today. He had to have some IV fluids before the game. Energy just wasn’t there for him tonight. He tried to give it a go but I don’t think it’s right to put him in that position and have him out there not able to be himself.” New York Daily News

The Heat traded Anthony before the trade deadline a season ago, a transaction that neither LeBron James nor Dwyane Wade endorsed publicly and privately. “I had caught wind that a trade was a possibility,” Anthony said. “So when it happened, even though you knew it was a possibility, it still caught me by surprise just because you’re so close to the team, the organization and the city. It’s tough having played somewhere your entire career, the amount of time I had over there and all the memories. Obviously, Miami has always been home for me. I still have my place there in the offseason.” RealGM

The Heat waived Shannon Brown, who started two games, to make room on the roster. Whiteside, who spent one season collegiately at Marshall, also played in Lebanon and China last year. "We feel the upside of a 7-footer, shot-blocker, rebounder, young player was something that was too big to pass up right now," Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said. "We view him as a developmental player even though he's played professionally for three years, we still see him as a young prospect." South Florida Sun-Sentinel
