Los Angeles Lakers offensive guard Dion Waiters will receive the NBA champion ring even if the team loses to the Heat in the final, according to Fadeaway World.
Waiters started the season with Miami, before being traded to the Memphis Grizzlies for Andre Iguodala. Memphis dropped Waiters, who then signed with the Los Angeles Lakers. Waiters appeared in just three games for Miami, but that’s enough to earn the NBA title.

Indiana and Boston have found a way to reset some of the worst contracts on the payroll
Offensive lineman Victor Oladipo is set to leave the Indiana Pacers this offseason, according to The Athletic.
One of the likely scenarios is the exchange of Oladipo and another basketball player who wants to leave the Pacers, center miles Turner, to the Boston Celtics for forward Gordon Hayward. Hayward previously expressed his intention to activate the option in his $ 34 million contract, but adding draft picks to the deal should satisfy Indiana to accept the player’s salary. Indiana is Hayward’s home state, which should be a contributing factor to the deal.
Oladipo missed almost the entire 2019/2020 season due to a knee injury and no longer played at the NBA all-star game level. Victor has one year left on his current contract worth $ 21 million.
