It's been known for quite a while that the NBA business is an ugly business, and no one else knows that better than Moe Harkless, who after playing for the Clippers half of last season, he was dealt to the Knicks during the trade deadline in exchange for Marcus Morris.
The forward went from 100 to 0, as one day he was playing for a championship contender team and the next one he was representing one of the worst organizations in the league.
Still, he's gotten his revenge, as ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reported Harkless has agreed to a one-year, $3.6M deal with the Miami Heat.

The 27 year-old reportedly turned down more lucrative deals for a chance to play a strong role with the defending Eastern Conference champions, and to re-enter a more cash-flushed free agent marketplace in 2021, Wojnarowski stated.
Harkless played 62 games last season between both Los Angeles and New York. Despite not being so much of an offensive threat, averaging 5.2 points and 3.9 rebounds per contest, he's one of the best defenders in the league, being able to guard multiple positions.
