The Miami Heat will sign Sioux Falls guard Briante Weber for the remainder of the season and into next year.

The Miami Heat managed the cap in a way we haven't seen before, and now have the opportunity to sign a player they really like: Briante Weber.

According to Y! -- the Heat will sign Weber to a 3-year deal very soon and he will be eligible to play for the Heat in the playoffs. Although that is not likely, the Heat plan to use him in their summer program and see what they really have in the guard. Weber was originally on the Heat's summer camp roster but didn't make the cut as he was dealing with an injury.

Weber has played with the Heat's D-League affiliate the Sioux Falls Skyforce this season and so they have had a close eye on him the entire time. He has also had an opportunity at some contracts with the NBA, although he hasn't stuck anywhere.

The Heat may still intend to sign Dorell Wright to the roster as well.
