Former Miami Heat Champion Signs in Puerto Rico

He has two NBA championship rings from his days as a backup point guard with LeBron James and the Miami Heat over a decade ago. But he hasn't suited up in the NBA since 2017. Now, Norris Cole will continue his career, at the age of 35, in Puerto Rico.

As noted on the Osos de Manatí Bears Twitter (X) account, Cole got off the plane for his debut with the team and merely launched into a 33-point night with 10 assists. 

Cole had spent the past season playing with G League Ignite. He posted 5.4 points and 4.2 assists in 19.7 minutes per night. 

The 6'2" guard has been a real-life Globetrotter since leaving the NBA, playing in the likes of Israel, Spain, Puerto Rico, Montenegro, France, and Egypt. 

Cole was the 28th pick by the Chicago Bulls in the 2011 NBA Draft. He  Began his career, however, with the Miami Heat, and he immediately won championships in his first two years in the league (courtesy LeBron, Dwyane Wade, Chris Bosh and the Heatles). 

He holds career NBA marks of 7.0 points and 2.7 assists in 22 minutes per game, across six seasons with the Heat, New Orleans Pelicans and Oklahoma City Thunder.
