After losing LeBron James, the Miami Heat immediately re-signed Chris Bosh to a 5 year max contract. Now the Heat have reached an agreement with free-agent forward Luol Deng on a two-year, $20 million deal. Deng will hold a player option on the 2015-16 season, a source said.
Heat president Pat Riley and Deng’s agent Ron Shade talked on Saturday and completed the deal on Sunday morning.
A former Duke standout,, Deng, 29, brings the Heat a tough, defensive-minded forward with a versatile offensive game and a team first mentality.
Between Chicago and Cleveland, Deng averaged 16 points and 5.7 rebounds last season.
The Heat are showing a strong determination to re-shape the roster and still remain competitive in the Eastern Conference. Expect more offseason mov
