Heat and Luol Deng are still significantly apart on salary.
This will certainly hold up talks for a while as the team will likely explore other avenues while keeping Deng on the line a little longer. Someone is going to have to make a compromise here or he'll be scooped up by another team soon.ANALYST: Howard Bender
The 76ers have waived JaVale McGee.
McGee, oddly enough, came out and said he wanted to be a "mentor" to the young players on the Sixers after arriving at the trade deadline. Just a few weeks late, McGee will be packing his bags, hoping he picks up with a contender. The seven-footer reportedly will not have to give back any money in a buyout, and is owed the remainder of his $11.2 million contract, along with $12 million next year. Analysis: Spencer Silva
