Former Michigan Wolverines star Moe Wagner is looking for a new home. He has moved around quite a bit this season, with the Washington Wizards trading him to the Chicago Bulls just before the trade deadline, but that lasted but a few hours before he was dealt to the Boston Celtics. He played nine games with Boston, posting 1.2 points and 2.1 rebounds in 6.8 minutes per outing, before he was waived by the club April 16.

While it’s not a certainty that Wagner will find himself with a new organization before the end of the 2020-21 season, there appears to be some buzz surrounding him and a possible landing spot in Miami, where he could potentially reunite with former teammate Duncan Robinson. If he clears waivers, it looks like the Heat will potentially make a run at him, according to a recent report.
