Report: Gerald Green agrees to one-year deal with Miami Heat

Thursday July 9th, 2015

Free agent forward Gerald Green has agreed to sign a one-year deal with the Miami Heat, reports Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports.

Green, 29, played the last two seasons with the Phoenix Suns. Miami will be the eighth NBA team he has played for over his 10-year professional career, which also included a two-year stint in Russia.

With the Suns in 2014-15, Green averaged 11.9 points and 1.2 assists per game. He played primarily off the bench, starting just four of 74 games and averaging 19.5 minutes per game.

Green, who is 6’8”, had a career year for the Suns in 2013-14 when he averaged a career-best 15.8 points per game and made 40 percent of his three-point attempts, another career high. Warriors stars Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson were the only other two players who sunk 40 percent of their three-pointers on a minimum six attempts per game while playing at least 25 games that year.
