DONE DEAL: The Miami Heat star player recently re-sign a two-way contract, the team announced…

The Heat announced today in a news release that guard Dru Smith had returned to the organisation on a two-way contract.

After joining Miami’s 15-man roster at the start of the previous year, Smith played in just nine games before suffering a serious ACL injury that ultimately resulted in his release. Smith was hurt in Cleveland when he stumbled and fell into the bench area. The Heat were concerned about what they thought was a risky drop-off near the sidelines, so they called the NBA.


Before the injury, Smith was having a good game in the little time he had available. In 14.6 minutes a game, he was averaging 4.3 points, 1.6 assists, and 1.6 rebounds with a shooting percentage of.455/.412/1.000. In 2022–2023, he made appearances in 15 NBA regular season games for the Heat and Nets.

Since going undrafted out of Missouri in 2021, Smith has spent the majority of his professional career bouncing on and off the Heat’s roster, with the exception of his brief stay in Brooklyn to finish the ’22–23 season. Since 2021, Miami has waived him four times; nevertheless, he is back under contract with the organisation going into 2023–2024.

Zyon Pullin, an undrafted rookie, was also formally signed by the Heat to a two-way contract today. Keshad Johnson, another undrafted free agent, is anticipated to take Miami’s third two-way spot.
