Miami Heat News: Heat to Bring Back Wayne Ellington for 2017-18 Season
- Updated: July 7, 2017
The Miami Heat have decided to bring back one of their three-point snipers from last season, as the team picked up shooting guard Wayne Ellington’s $6.27 option for the 2017-18 season. The 6-foot-4 guard made $6 million in his first season with Miami.
The move was made possible due to the Heat shedding $6 million owed to former power forward Josh McRoberts, who was traded to the Dallas Mavericks along with a second-round pick and cash considerations on Thursday.
Ellington joins a list of Heat players who have decided to re-sign with a team that went 30-11 in the second half of the 2016-17 NBA season. That list includes Dion Waiters and James Johnson in addition to new recruit Kelly Olynyk.
The three-point sniper put up 10.5 points per game last season, including a 37.8 percentage from three-point land.
