Heat Sign Tyler Johnson

THURSDAY, 11:37am: The deal is official, the team announced via press release.

WEDNESDAY, 2:48pm: It will be a two-year contract, according to Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald (on Twitter).

9:13am: The Heat and former Fresno State guard Tyler Johnson have struck a deal, reports Shams Charania of RealGM (Twitter link). Hoops Rumors reported last week that Johnson had been drawing interest from multiple NBA teams who were impressed with his showing on Miami’s summer league roster. The terms of the deal aren’t immediately clear, though the Heat can hand out no more than a two-year contract for the minimum salary.

Johnson averaged 12.5 points in 22.7 minutes per game across 10 summer league appearances after going undrafted this past June. He notched 15.9 PPG in 33.6 MPG with 43.2% shooting from behind the three-point line this past season as a senior with the Bulldogs.

The Heat will surely make more additions between now and the start of camp, but as it stands, the client of agent Pedro Power seems to have a decent chance of making the opening-night roster, since Miami only has contracts or agreements with 13 other players. Only 11 of them have fully guaranteed deals.

    GREAT!!! I was hoping they saw the same thing i did from this guy in games. He can ball. Nice combo guard with good athleticism.

      Agreed. Only caught three games from Miami’s run in Orlando, but he appears to be a really aggressive defender too.

  3. So glad they signed this kid…Go Heat.

    Good move!

    I would have signed Tyler Honeycutt before him. But the kid is pretty good.

    • Bobby Wright

      Was thinking the same thing! Honeycutt is a good rebounder. Heat need that. But I like this guard pick up a lot!

  6. Yes sir he is a keeper Honeycutt had a good game also but the Heat needs Johnson energy never know we may still pick him up Johnson makes things happen

    Smart move, solid perimeter shooter, good motor!! Hope Spo gravitates towards playing all the pieces this year! Player self-esteem, and rhythm, like a pop rotation, pays dividends!!!!
