The Miami HEAT announced today that they have requested waivers on guard Smush Parker.

No word yet on the exact buyout agreement, but we’ll post it here and on our rumors page when it’s known.

There is no guarantee Parker gets signed by another team. Not after such public disagreements with Pat Riley and Lakers coach Phil Jackson, two of the game’s most respected coaches.

Parker, who was signed as a free agent by the HEAT on July 27, 2007, appeared in nine games for Miami this season, averaging 4.8 points, 2.1 rebounds and 1.7 assists in 20.3 minutes per game.
 
The HEAT roster currently stands at 14 players.
