Heat Sign Jamaree Bouyea To 10-Day Deal

FEBRUARY 8: The Heat have made it official, announcing a press release that they’ve signed Bouyea to a 10-day contract.

FEBRUARY 7: The Heat plan to sign Jamaree Bouyea to a 10-day contract, sources tell Shams Charania of The Athletic (Twitter link).

Bouyea, 23, went undrafted last June after a five-year college career with San Francisco. He signed an Exhibit 10 deal with the Heat in mid-July and played for the Heat’s Summer League squad.

The 6’2″ point guard was waived before the regular season started and has spent his entire rookie year with the Sioux Falls Skyforce, the Heat’s G League affiliate.

During the Showcase Cup, which ended in December, Bouyea averaged 15.1 PPG, 7.3 RPG, 6.1 APG and 2.4 SPG on .493/.306/.654 shooting in 16 games (35.5 MPG). He has averaged 18.3 PPG, 4.9 RPG, 5.6 APG and 1.4 SPG on .520/.286/.735 shooting during 16 regular season games for the Skyforce (33.4 MPG).

The Heat announced (via Twitter) earlier on Tuesday that Kyle Lowry will miss at least three games with knee soreness, so Bouyea could get some minutes during his 10-day deal.

Miami traded Dewayne Dedmon to the Spurs in a salary dump, and already had a roster opening, so no subsequent moves will be required to sign Bouyea.
