Josh McRoberts may not be the prize of the free agency class, but he is the first commitment to join the Miami Heat in the 7 days of free agency since July 1.
ESPN first reported that McRoberts has agreed to a deal of 4 year and $23 million with the Heat, including an opt-out after the 3rd year. McRoberts will receive either the full Mid-Level Exception (MLE), or a deal close to it, depending on how the Heat choose to spend their money.
McRoberts is a 6'10, 240 lbs PF from the Charlotte Hornets, of whom he turned down an identical offer to join the Heat. Last year, he averaged 8.5 PPG and shot 36% from three.
There's more to come from Hot Hot Hoops about how McRoberts will help the Heat, and if this will help keep LeBron James in Miami.
