Heat Sign Forward To Standard NBA Contract

The Miami Heat have signed Caleb Martin to a standard NBA contract for the rest of the season. 

When looking at how often Martin has played with the Heat this season, one may have assumed that he was already on one, but he actually was still under a two-way deal. In 44 games with the team, he has averaged 9.5 points, 4.0 rebounds, 1.0 assists, and 22.9 minutes played. With that, he even started in 10 of those contests, so he has been leaving a solid impact in the process. 

This signing is an important one for the Heat, as it means that Martin will now be on their official 15-man roster. With this, he is allowed to play during the postseason, which is certainly important given his role with the team. By moving KZ Okpala this past week, there were able to finally give Martin this well-deserved promotion. 

In 115 career games between the Charlotte Hornets and Heat, Martin has averaged 6.9 points, 3.1 rebounds, and 1.2 assists. Now, he will officially be able to continue to build on those totals with Miami for the rest of the year.
