The Miami Heat have agreed to a one year deal to re-sign Shooting Guard Victor Oladipo. Olapido has signed for the veteran minimum, the two time all-star will return for a second year with Miami.
This comes after Miami dealt Kelly Olynyk and Avery Bradley to the Rockets for Oladipo at the trade deadline. After joining the team, Oladipo injured his right quadriceps tendon.
Despite requiring surgery, Oladipo is expected back with the team during the winter.
In the 4 games he played in Miami Oladipo seemed to unlock Miami’s defensive potential, giving them another point-of-attack defender and volume scorer.
He looks to help this team on both sides of the ball.
Miami has added proven veterans in Kyle Lowry, PJ Tucker, and Markeiff Morris.
In addition, they retained depth pieces Duncan Robinson, Max Struss, Dewayne Dedmon, Gabe Vincent, and now have re-signed Oladipo.
The Heat look to continue an active offseason to this point, looking to maximize stars Jimmy Butler and Bam Adebayo.
They have shown interest in shooters across the league, adding depth that should help them in the postseason.
Pat Riley always has something in his back pocket, and we can only guess what’s coming next. We will be sure to keep you updated through this fast paced offseason at ATB.
