MONDAY, 3:35pm: The deal is official, the team announced via press release.
Dawkins spent the bulk of this 10-day stint in the D-League, though he was recalled briefly to join Boston for a practice a few days ago and he was also brought back to the team earlier today. The 23-year-old was waived by the Heat in January as they opted not to guarantee his rookie minimum salary for the season.
Miami was reportedly interested in bringing back the John Spencer client on a 10-day contract at some point this season, but the Celtics ostensibly beat them to the punch. The former Duke Blue Devil went undrafted this summer, but he joined the Rockets and Heat for summer league and made Miami’s opening-night roster out of training camp. In four games with Miami, Dawkins played a grand total of 22 minutes.
Gary Washburn of the Boston Globe (on Twitter) first reported that a second 10-day deal for Dawkins was expected.
