Malik Newman Signs Contract With Heat

AUGUST 6: The signing is official, the team tweets.

AUGUST 3: Guard Malik Newman has agreed to a contact with the Heat, Michael Scotto of The Athletic tweets.

Newman, 21, signed a two-way contract with the Lakers at the beginning of last month but was waived on July 19th. He played in five summer league games for Los Angeles and averaged 3.2 PPG in 9.8 MPG. The contract is believed to be a training-camp deal, though the Heat have openings on their roster.

The 6’3” guard spent one season at the University of Kansas, posting averages of 14.2 PPG, 5.0 RPG and 2.1 APG while shooting 41.5% from long range. He went undrafted in June.
