The Heat have converted rookie guard Matt Williams‘ deal into a two-way contract, the team announced on its website. The move officially puts Miami at the regular season limit, with 15 players on the roster and two-way deals for Williams and Derrick Walton.
Because Williams had an Exhibit 10 contract, the move did not require his consent, tweets Ira Winderman of The Sun-Sentinel. Two-way contracts limit players to 45 days in the NBA and set their salaries between $75K and $275K.
Williams signed with the Heat in July after playing for their summer league teams in Orlando and Las Vegas. He appeared in all six preseason games and averaged 2.2 points in 6.4 minutes per night.
Williams went undrafted out of Central Florida after topping 1,000 career points and becoming the school’s all-time leader in made 3-pointers with 274.
