Miami Heat are going to bolster their frontcourt rotation with veteran big man Dewayne Dedmon, according to Shams Charania of the Athletic.
After missing on free agents from the buyout market including Andre Drummond and LaMarcus Aldridge, Dedmon is an interesting choice for the Heat.
The veteran big has not appeared in an NBA game since the league decided to postpone the 2019-2020 season on March 11, 2020.
Dedmon, who is going to sign a full-time contract for this season, per Ira Winderman, will add depth and shooting to the Heat undermanned front court rotation.
Miami traded Kelly Olynyk and Meyers Leonard away during the trade deadline, both players could stretch the floor with their shooting. Now, Dedmon is joining the Heat as a career 33.3 percent shooter from deep.
Dedmon appeared in 44 games between the Kings and Hawks (including 18 starts), averaging 5.8 points, 5.7 rebounds and 0.9 blocks in just 17.6 minutes per. He has also played for the Magic, Spurs, Sixers and Warriors.
