Report: Miami Heat to Offer Chris Silva 3-Year Deal

1 Min Read

The Miami Heat are prepared to reward power forward Chris Silva with a new three-year contract.

That contract will replace the two-way deal Silva signed back in October of last year.

The Heat had originally signed the 23-year-old Silva as a free agent in July, but the team’s decision to extend him had been expected in recent weeks.

Signing him now clears up his contract situation beyond this year and allows the Heat to pursue additional talent for the team’s roster.

Silva is only averaging 8.3 minutes of action per game this season, contributing 3.5 points and 3.1 rebounds per contest.

Despite that limited production, the Heat clearly see potential in the University of South Carolina alum.

Silva and the Heat host the San Antonio Spurs on Wednesday, hoping to end the team’s current two-game losing streak.
