The Portland Trail Blazers have reached an agreement on a two-year deal with Derrick Jones Jr., Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.

The move will give Portland an uber athletic 23-year-old fresh off a career year with the Miami Heat.

Jones Jr.’s deal will be for $19.5 million and he’ll join a Blazers squad that hasn’t been afraid to fortify its roster this offseason. Portland has already added Robert Covington and Enes Kanter this week.

Jones Jr. averaged 8.5 points per game for the Heat last season.
