With the emergence of Bam Adebayo, the Miami Heat have become one of the most complete teams across the Eastern Conference. As a result, the two sides have agreed on a five-year extension worth up to $163 million.
In his sophomore season, Adebayo averaged 15.9 points and 10.2 rebounds per game. His rebounding average ranked 8th in the NBA.
The Heat have remained active this offseason, re-signing Goran Dragic and Myers Leonard to respective two-year deals. In addition, the team signed Avery Bradley (two-year, $11.6 million) and Moe Harkless (one-year, $3.6 million) in their quest to return to the NBA Finals.
