Heat waive Eddie House

Eddie House

The Heat announced Saturday that they have waived Eddie House. House joined the Heat last season as a free agent after being traded from the Celtics in 2010 when the Knicks acquired Nate Robinson, who was coincidentally also waived by the Thunder on Saturday.

House played limited minutes for the Heat last year, with a handful of quality games and saw his involvement nearly vanish once Mike Bibby joined the team at mid-season. The Heat decided to keep end-of-the-bench players Mickell Gladness and Terrell Harris. They will eat House’s salary for the season. With Mike Miller back from surgery and Shane Battier with perimeter range, House’s biggest strength was largely redundant.

House will likely wind up back with a contender in need of bench depth. It remains to be seen whether the paper thin Celtics would have an interest and if so, if House is willing to let go of his frustration over being traded.

But hey, one thing’s for certain, House will wind up doing various dances after 3-pointers somewhere. But first he has to recover from minor knee surgery, so he’ll have some time to weight his options.

    Someone asked leb about House leaving, leb called him “a brother”. I wonder how many times leb spoke one-on-one with his “brother”.
    GL Eddie, maybe now you can win a title.

      Really? The next thing you know people will be blaming Lebron for the war in Iraq. LBJ has absolutely nothing to do with House’s release. Move on.

        Didn’t say he did, did I? Didn’t suggest it, did I? Can’t read, can you?

        I don’t blame LBJ for Iraq, but he certainly had a lot to do with Vietnam.

      No, but you did suggest you had some firsthand knowledge of LeBron not treating Eddie House well. Care to share?

    House didn’t need LBJ as a brother. He already has a brother on the team. Mike Bibby. House is married to Bibby’s sister.

    The Heat’s home white uni makes Eddie House look like he’s sitting inside a McDonald’s bag. That being said, goingvto be another awesome season. Starts today.

    Eddie House was terrible for the Heat last season. He jacked up 3’s so fast he couldn’t even set his feet. I realize he used to be good at this but his time has past. He will not be picked up by anybody.
