The Miami Herald’s Barry Jackson reported Thursday that former Arkansas point guard Daryl Macon “has emerged as a strong possibility” for the Miami Heat’s 20th and final roster spot for training camp.
NEW: A fresh Heat 6-pack, including point guard summoned for on-court work with team; interesting comments on Jimmy Butler; Waiters' durability comes with a cost. And more: https://t.co/c2DD9Li7Ky— Barry Jackson (@flasportsbuzz) September 19, 2019
Macon played for Miami during the 2018 summer league, but signed a two-way contract with the Dallas Mavericks last year. The Heat have brought him back to Miami for on-court work, according to Jackson.
If signed, Macon would compete for two possible two-way contracts with the Heat. Kyle Alexander, Chris Silva, Davon Reed, Jeremiah Martin and Mychal Mulder are the other players, already signed, who will fight for one of those contracts.
Two-way contracts allow teams to add 16th and 17th roster spots for players who can spend up to 45 days with their NBA team and the rest of the season with that team’s G League affiliate. And they can become bona ride rotation players. Derrick Jones Jr. first joined the Heat on a two-way contract during the 2017-18 season.
