The Miami Heat have announced they have officially signed Jamaree Bouyea to a 10-day contract on Wednesday.

The team wasted little time in filling an empty roster spot left vacant after Tuesday’s Deywane Dedmon trade with the San Antonio Spurs ahead of tomorrow’s highly-anticipated NBA trade deadline.

Bouyea has been a steady fixture with the Heat’s G-League affiliate, the Sioux Falls Skyforce, after originally signing with Miami back on July 14 and he proceeded to appear in four preseason games with them, averaging 8.5 points, 2.5 rebounds, 2.3 assists, 1.25 steals and 17.2 minutes per game.

After joining the Skyforce, he has appeared in 16 games (all starts) this season averaging 19.0 points, 5.8 assists, 5.3 rebounds, 1.31 steals, 1.00 blocks and 35.1 minutes while shooting 52.2 percent from the field. As noted in the official press release announcing the signing, Bouyea has been filling up the box score this season, leading the team in assists, steals, blocks and field goals made and is second in points, rebounds and free throws made.

Also from the press release:

Bouyea played his entire collegiate career at the University of San Francisco, appearing in 160 games (105 starts), finishing as the school’s all-time leader in games played and wins while finishing third in assists and steals and fifth in points and field goals made. In his final season, he started all 34 games and averaged 17.3 points, 5.0 rebounds, 4.0 assists, 1.82 steals and 36.2 minutes. He earned All-WCC First Team honors and was named to the NABC All-District First Team. He ranked third in the conference in scoring and led the team in points, assists, steals, field goals made and free throws made. He scored in double-figures in all but five games, including a career-high 36 points in the final game against Murray State in the NCAA Tournament.
