Heat Re-Sign Tyler Johnson and Udonis Haslem

by July 11, 2016

It was an extremely busy weekend for the front-office in Miami.

The Heat reached agreements with free agents Tyler Johnson, Udonis Haslem and James Johnson.

Miami matched Tyler Johnson’s four-year, $50 million offer from the Brooklyn; Haslem re-upped on a one-year, $4 million deal and James Johnson inked a one-year, $4 million contract.

Per the Miami Herald:

The Miami Heat’s post-Dwyane Wade era roster makeover went into overdrive Sunday with team reeling in four new players, re-signing veteran Udonis Haslem and matching a four-year, $50 million offer to restricted free agent Tyler Johnson.

 

After 10 days of free agency, the Heat’s roster is back at 15 but will look vastly different from the one that lost in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference semifinals only two months ago.

 

The commitment to Tyler Johnson, an undrafted 24-year-old combo guard with only 73 games of experience in the league, was the biggest news of the day Sunday and significant considering the structure of the contract the Heat had to match to keep him from going to the Brooklyn Nets. […] “We are extremely happy to re-sign Tyler,” team president Pat Riley said in a statement released by the team. “He, Hassan, Justise [Winslow] and Josh [Richardson] have grown together as an exciting, athletic, highly skilled young core over the last couple of years. They are going to have a tremendous opportunity this season and we are looking forward to watching them play together on the floor.”
