After Gordon Hayward decided to sign with the Boston Celtics, the Miami Heat moved quickly to re-sign Dion Waiters to a four-year deal.
And now the Heat are moving to re-sign James Johnson and Wayne Ellington, according to new reports.

AP is told that Miami and James Johnson are continuing to move near a deal. It's been expected, and still is expected.— Tim Reynolds (@ByTimReynolds) July 5, 2017
Your James Johnson update: Mark Bartelstein spoke to Riley tonight and said they will resume talks in AM. Both sides working toward deal.— Barry Jackson (@flasportsbuzz) July 6, 2017
Last season, Ellington knocked down 149 3-pointers, the highest of any Heat player. And Johnson filled in admirably after Justise Winslow’s injury, emerging as a valuable point forward.
