Maten was originally signed to a two-way contract on July 29 and has split time this season with the Heat and their G-League affiliate Sioux Falls Skyforce, where he earned All-NBA G League Second Team and NBA G League All-Rookie Team honors. In 30 starts, Maten averaged a team-leading 23.5 points, 9.6 rebounds, 1.8 assists, 1.03 blocks and 32.7 minutes while shooting 53.8 percent from the field.
Ira Winderman of the Sun-Sentinel is reporting that the contact is a multi-year deal. Most likely the contract has team options for future seasons.
Miami had to make a roster move before the end of the regular season and even after converting Maten’s two-way contract to a standard deal, they may not be done yet.
Heat, who are currently at 13 players, need to add a player by Monday. They’ll likely add two by the end of the regular season. They have the flexibility to add them either through a signing or through a waiver claim (via $6.3M trade exception), which would be more expensive.— Albert Nahmad (@AlbertNahmad) April 6, 2019
As per club policy, terms of Maten’s deal were not officially disclosed.
