Dion Waiters revealed Wednesday at Miami Heat training camp that he was offered the option of ankle surgery last March that would have sidelined him for eight to 10 months. Waiters said he continues to push through discomfort.

Waiters faced the surgery decision at a time when he stood as an impending free agent, ultimately winding up with a four-year, $52 million contract. The Heat were not in position to assure him of such a payout when surgery stood as an option in March, at the time also considering what became an unsuccessful free-agency bid for forward Gordon Hayward. Only after Hayward moved on to the Boston Celtics from the Utah Jazz did the Heat cycle back to Waiters and their own free agents.

Compounding Waiters’ approach with the ankle this season is an incentive built into his new contract that calls for a $1.1 million payment if he appears in at least 70 games, which would limit him to no more than 12 absences during the regular season. The Heat open their regular season Oct. 18 at the Amway Center against the Orlando Magic.

Green re-signed

The Memphis Grizzlies signed forward JaMychal Green to a multiyear contract. Terms of the deal weren’t immediately announced.

Green, 27, is coming off the most productive season of his career. The 6-foot-9 forward averaged 8.9 points, 7.1 rebounds, 1.1 assists and 27.3 minutes in 77 games with the Grizzlies. He made 75 starts.

He has played 179 games in a three-year career with the San Antonio Spurs and Grizzlies. Green has career averages of 7.4 points and 5.4 rebounds.

Kings keep leaders

The Sacramento Kings extended General Manager Vlade Divac’s contract and exercised the option for coach Dave Joerger’s fourth season.

The moves keep Divac and Joerger under contract in Sacramento through the 2019-20 season. Divac says the two have a unified vision on how to get the Kings back to the playoffs for the first time since 2006.

Divac enters his third year as general manager and is trying to rebuild the roster after trading star center DeMarcus Cousins to New Orleans last season.

Joerger is entering his second season with the Kings after three years as coach in Memphis. Sacramento had a 32-50 record last season.

Lawson to be analyst

Former WNBA and college basketball star Kara Lawson will be the primary television analyst for the Washington Wizards this season.

Comcast SportsNet Mid-Atlantic announced the hiring of Lawson. A longtime ESPN game and studio analyst, Lawson will continue to contribute on that network along with working Wizards games.

Lawson in 2007 became the first female analyst for a nationally televised NBA game. The 36-year-old went to the Final Four three times at the University of Tennessee and won an Olympic gold medal in 2008.
