As expected, the Miami Heat announced today that Henry Walker has been signed for the rest of the season. Walker so far has appeared in 10 games (started five of them) while averaging 8.5 points, 3.4 rebounds, 1 assists a game in 27.4 minutes. During that span of ten games, the Heat have had a 6-4 record.

Walker has had individual career highs so far, like four steals vs Brooklyn and three blocks vs Sacramento but he is so far remembered for hitting back to back three pointers against Orlando. His original ten day was February 21st, his next ten day was march 3rd, before being picked up for the rest of the season today.

His success before being brought on was with the Sioux Falls Skyforce, where he played 17 games and averaged 15.1 points, 3.9 rebounds, 1.5 assists and 1 steal in 27.8 minutes of action while shooting nearly 50% from the field. Walker three point efficiency had helped him start and it creates space for the lineup while Goran Dragic and Dwyane Wade attack. From 10 day contract to starter, Henry Walker is another success story for the Miami Heat this season.
