Miami makes a necessary roster move before the end of the regular season

NBA: Preseason-Miami Heat at Washington Wizards Tommy Gilligan-USA TODAY Sports

The Miami Heat have signed forward Yante Maten, it was announced today before their early game against the Toronto Raptors on Sunday.

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.

As per club policy, terms of Maten’s deal were not officially disclosed.
