In a rather exciting move, the Miami Heat have reportedly decided to re-sign Caleb Martin on a three-year deal.
Caleb Martin has agreed to a three-year deal worth about $20.5 million deal to return to the Heat, per source.

The 2021-22 NBA season was Martin’s first with Miami, and he took full advantage of the opportunity.
He played in 60 games during the regular season, averaging 9.2 points, 3.8 rebounds and 1.1 assists per game.
While Martin, 26, may not be a future star in the league, he certainly fills an important role as a rotational player on the Heat roster. He’s got solid size and proven to be a selfless player throughout his career.
With the Heat making sure that Martin is in Miami for the foreseeable future, it will be interesting to see how his role on the team evolves going forward.
Surely, both sides are really happy to have this deal done so Martin can remain a part of the Heat family in South Florida for many years to come.
