The Heat will bring rookie free agent guard Jamaree Bouyea to training camp, where he’ll have a chance to compete for a roster spot, reports Shams Charania of The Athletic (Twitter link). According to Ira Winderman of The South Florida Sun Sentinel (Twitter link), Bouyea is signing an Exhibit 10 contract.
Bouyea wasn’t selected in the June 23 draft after spending five years at the University of San Francisco. In his last two college seasons, he averaged 17.3 PPG, 4.4 RPG, 3.9 APG, and 1.7 SPG with a solid shooting line of .483/.368/.755 in 59 games (35.1 MPG).
After going undrafted, Bouyea has suited up for the Heat at both the California Classic Summer League and the Las Vegas Summer League.
While Bouyea is probably a long shot to earn a spot on Miami’s 15-man regular season roster, an Exhibit 10 contract can be converted to a two-way contract before the regular season begins. It also makes a player eligible for a bonus worth up to $50K if he’s waived before the season and then joins his team’s G League affiliate.
