BAM ADEBAYO AND HEAT AGREE TO MAX EXTENSION
Center Bam Adebayo will now have the richest contract in Miami Heat history. A deal that even surpasses star Jimmy Butler. The Heat signed Adebayo to a 5-year $195 million dollar contract yesterday, solidifying an important piece of their puzzle.
The move makes the Heat one of the many winners in free agency as they also signed forward Jae Crowder, as well as guard Avery Bradley and resigned forward Meyers Leonard and guard Goran Dragic giving them one of the deepest rosters in the NBA. They also possess a lot of good young talent especially with players such as Adebayo, Tyler Herro, Kendrick Nunn, Derrick Jones and Leonard who is the oldest of the group at age 28.
Adebayo averaged 15.9 points last season as he was the second leading scorer for the Heat. He also led them in rebounds averaging 7.8 rebounds. He was an important part of Miami’s defensive puzzle as well as he named to the All-Defensive team last season. He was also named to the All-Star team in the East as well.
Adebayo missed two games in the NBA Championship series against the Lakers, which hurt the Miami Heat very much. Adebayo played excellent in the playoffs, averaging 24.6 points and 14.3 rebounds.
