HEAT Acquire Luke Babbitt

Hopefully Luke Babbitt didn't sign a long-term lease in Atlanta.

White meanwhile will never play a game in a Hawk's uniform after being waived and is set to become a free agent if he clears waivers.

Babbitt will return to the Heat after playing for them just a year ago.

The Miami Heat have traded Okaro White to the Atlanta Hawks for Luke Babbitt.

Babbitt is averaging 6.1 points and 2.2 rebounds in 37 games (15.4 minutes per) with Atlanta.

Babbitt is averaging 6.1 points and 2.2 rebounds in 15.4 minutes per game, shooting 44% from 3-point range. Olynyk strained his left shoulder Monday against Orlando and sat out Wednesday's 109-101 loss to the Rockets. Babbitt, 28, played one season with the Heat, averaging 4.8 points and 1.9 rebounds last season before signing a one-year, minimum contract for $1,974,159 with the Hawks in August. He was the team's starter at power forward for most of their awesome 30-11 second-half run but missed the final five games of the year due to injury. In his lone season in Miami during the 2016-17 campaign, he made a single-season career-high 87 three-point field goals and hit multiple treys in a game 23 times, also a single-season career best.
