ESPN’s Chris Haynes reported Thursday that the Heat have re-signed 3-point specialist Wayne Ellington.

Haynes said that the deal is for one year and worth $6.27 million. According to the South Florida Sun-Sentinel’s Ira Winderman, the deal comes with a no-trade clause for next season. But the Heat likely won’t want to trade Ellington, who was their best shooter last season.

Ellington said that he was happy to remain with the team.

This move takes care of a big priority for Miami. Ellington’s constant movement and shooting helped an otherwise anemic offense last season. Now, the Heat will see if Dwyane Wade and Udonis Haslem will play for one more season. Miami may also sign Carmelo Anthony.
