Miami Heat Sign Guard

After a 40-point explosion for the Miami Heat's G League affiliate, the Heat immediately offered Javonte Smart a two-way contract to join the NBA club. 

Smart was originally signed by the Heat to a training camp contract on Sept. 10 but waived before the season started, on Oct. 15.  He then put up some excellent numbers for Miami's G League affiliate the Sioux Falls Skyforce, averaging a team-leading 23.4 PPG, 4.9 RPG, and 3.7 APG in 12 games. He capped it off with a spectacular 40-point night Tuesday night. 

The 22-year-old also spent 13 games with the Milwaukee Bucks earlier this season, also on a two-way contract, averaging 2.4 points in 12.3 minutes of action.

The 6'4" 200-pound point guard went undrafted after a 3-year stint at Louisiana State. He stands 11th in assists and 12th in three-point field goals made on LSU's all-time list and made the All-SEC second team.
