But he isn’t the only player to do so.
The Miami HEAT announced today that they have signed guard Tyler Johnson for the remainder of the season.
In five games since joining the rotation, Johnson is averaging 8.6 points, 3.0 rebounds, 1.4 assists and 1.6 steals in 22.3 minutes per game. He’s shooting 50.0 percent from the field and 57.1 percent on 3-pointers.
The 22-year-old who went undrafted out of Fresno State is an impressive athlete and has a knack for being in the right place. With the rest of the season to develop, he’s positioned to carve out a multi-year NBA career.
More immediately, the 21-29 Heat – tied with the Nets for eighth in the Eastern Conference – need him to help their playoff push.
