After getting traded from Philadelphia to Detroit, Danuel House Jr. was waived by the Pistons. Multiple contenders are expected to pursue him as a free agent, according to The Athletic’s Shams Charania.

House is a utility forward who provides some length and a defensive presence. He’s a streaky 3-point shooter who has gotten worse (30% this season, 33.6% last season, 37.6% the season prior) but has enough of a history that a good team should be willing to take a chance on a reversion. 

Depending on what happens with Haywood Highsmith, who missed Wednesday’s game after being involved in a car accident that severely injured another person, the Heat could have a need for depth at forward. House is the best forward on the market.
