The Miami HEAT announced today that they have exercised their fourth-year team option on Bam Adebayo. Per club policy, terms of the deal were not disclosed. Adebayo, who was selected in the first round (14th overall) by the HEAT in the 2017 NBA Draft, was the only Miami player to appear in all 82 games […]
The Heat had until October 31 to make a decision on the fourth-year option on Bam Adebayo’s contract but they wasted no time. Miami announced that it has picked up the 2020-21 option in a team press release.
Adebayo saw 22.3 minutes per game last season for the Heat but he is projected to take on a larger role in Miami now that Hassan Whiteside has been shipped to Portland. The 22-year-old center will have to compete with Meyers Leonard and Kelly Olynyk for minutes at the five though it wouldn’t be surprising if he leads the trio in minutes played this season.
Adebayo will make roughly $5.1 million during the 2020-21 campaign, which is now guaranteed. He is making approximately $3.5 million this season.

Guard Devon Reed is expected to join the Miami Heat on a training camp deal, Shandel Richardson of The Athletic reports. The 24-year-old has seen action in each of the past two season, suiting up for the Phoenix Suns and Indiana Pacers.
The former Miami Hurricane, selected 32nd overall in the 2017 NBA Draft, has averaged 2.4 points across 31 career games.
After the Suns cut Reed last year, he latched on with Indiana as a two-way player, enjoying success for the organization’s G League affiliate in Fort Wayne. While he shot under 40 percent from the field, the Princeton, N.J., native posted solid averages of 13.9 points, 6.2 rebounds, and 3.0 assists across 34 contests.
Reed suited up for the Warriors in the 2019 Summer League, averaging 6.5 points and 3.5 rebounds but his shooting woes continued, evidenced by his 32 percent field goal percentages in four games.
Miami has 12 players on guaranteed contracts entering training camp. Thus, Reed is expected to compete with fellow non-roster invitees Jeremiah Martin, Kyle Alexander and Chris Silva for a roster spot.
