DeShawn Stevenson Clears Waivers, Expresses Desire to Join Miami Heat


DeShawn Stevenson cleared waivers last week after the Hawks waived him and you’ll never guess who he wants to team-up with.

Years after calling him overrated, Stevenson wants LeBron James to get him a job with the Miami Heat!

Stevenson, 32, played last season in Atlanta and appeared in 56 games with 31 starts. He averaged 5.1 points, 2.2 rebounds and 0.9 assists in 20.7 minutes per game.

Stevenson’s minutes-per-game average with the Hawks last season was the highest its been since 2008-09 with Washington.

DeShawn came to Atlanta last summer from Brooklyn as part of the Joe Johnson deal in a sign-and-trade. Sign-and-trade contracts must be for three seasons in length so Stevenson still had two years left on his deal. However, the final two years were non-guaranteed, prompting the Hawks to cut Stevenson loose.
