It’s not a surprise to see the Heat extend the small forward’s contract as Walker has given the team an offensive spark in the absence of All-star power forward Chris Bosh.
Through the season thus far, Walker is averaging 11.8 points, 3.0 rebounds, and an astounding 2.8 made three pointers per game. A case could be made that Walker is the team’s best three-pointer shooter.
Since Miami has now given Walker two 10-day contracts, a big decision will loom on March 12, 2015 (the end of Walker’s second 10-day contract). That’s because teams are only allowed to offer players two 10-day contracts, before a decision on whether or not to sign the player for the rest of the season must be made.
