Replace Luke Babbitt with Eddie House?

The thought crossed my mind after reading this Dwight Jaynes article and immediately thinking about the Miami Heat recently waiving Eddie House.

I know I know, I realize he was waived due to having arthroscopic left knee surgery on Nov. 1st and is expected to be sidelined for about a month. He opted into the second and final season of his two-year, $2.8 million contract last summer. My thought process is, we treat him as we would Luke Babbitt and not rely on him (while he's healing), and hope that he can shuffle him into the lineup and get him into game shape by playoff time. I'm assuming we can all agree that Eddie House is a proven three-point championship level vetern shooter versus our beloved, experienced and D-League proven star, Luke Babbitt (ha ha ha ha, sorry, I had to).

Can we waive Luke Babbitt, who most of us I believe is a waste of a roster spot (or someone else), to make room for a healing Eddie House? Where would that put us cap-wise? Would it be worth it?

I'm intrigued by the team we've assembled, but I just don't see Luke Babbitt or Armon Johnson contributing whether we have a shortened and hellish back to back and back to back to back season. If any riding-the-pine guard is going to get minutes and (hopefully) will be productive, I believe it'll be Elliot Williams.

Interested in hearing what you have to say Blazer Nation...

Also, did I post this in the right section (FanPost)?
