As the Miami Heat look to use the rest of their cap space to fill out their roster, they have added free agent shooting guard Wayne Ellington according to The Vertical.
Free guard guard Wayne Eillington has agreed to a two-year, $12M-plus deal with the Miami Heat, league sources tell @TheVertical.— Adrian Wojnarowski (@WojVerticalNBA) July 10, 2016
Ellington is a 7 year pro from North Carolina. He's a 6'4 shooting guard (sound familiar?). And he averaged 7.7 PPG for the Brooklyn Nets last year. He's a career 37% three-point shooter, something the Heat will need plenty of from him.
His deal with the Heat is for 2 years and $12 million. We are still uncertain about the Heat's intention to match Tyler Johnson's contract with the Nets, but this seems like they are moving in a different direction.
Ellington has two career games with 7 three-pointers, both against the Miami Heat. Maybe you remember.
