Miami Heat News: Heat Re-Sign Beno Udrih to Guaranteed One-Year, $1.4M Deal
- Updated: August 17, 2016
The 34-year-old’s signing was first reported by Shams Charania of The Vertical and Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald; Udrih had a potential two-year deal with another club, but that deal never panned out.
Free agent guard Beno Udrih has agreed to a guaranteed one-year deal to re-sign with the Miami Heat, league sources tell The Vertical.

Heat agreement with Beno Udrih gives them 19 players under contract, lengthening the odds for Okaro White, Jankovic, McGruder, maybe Weber.

Udrih is coming off of an injury-plagued campaign in 2015-16, in which his season ended due to a foot injury. He was subsequently waived in order to allow the team to add swingman Joe Johnson, who has since signed with the Utah Jazz.
Arriving in Miami last November as part of a salary-cap deal that sent Mario Chalmers and James Ennis to Memphis, the Heat are Udrih’s seventh team. The well-traveled Slovenian began his career in 2004, playing three years as a reserve for the San Antonio Spurs, a time in which the Spurs won two NBA titles.
Last season, Udrih saw action in 36 games for Miami, starting five contests. He averaged 4.4 points and 2.5 assists.
