Although things are stil up in the air for their Big Three, the Miami Heat have brought in two new pieces in hopes of competing next season. According to ESPN.com, free agents Josh McRoberts and Danny Granger have committed to sign new deals with the franchise.
Sources say the shooting big man will receive a four-year deal worth an estimated $23 million (the full midlevel exception), as well as an option to return to free agency entering the fourth season.
Granger, who played for the Indiana Pacers and Los Angeles Clippers last season, has agreed to a two-year, $4.2 million deal with the Heat, according to other sources.
McRoberts was said to have been pursued hard by eight teams, including the Charlotte Hornets, who badly wanted to keep him for passing and shooting ability. Last season, he averaged 8.5 points, 4.8 rebounds and 4.3 assists per game.
Granger averaged 8.2 points and 3.2 rebounds per game last season.
