According to Barry Jackson, Heat management has informed McRoberts' agency that their client is part of Miami's plans for the 2016-17 season, as they've discussed his offseason training schedule ahead of training camp opening in late September.
McRoberts, 29, is owed $5.78 million for 2016-17 and can earn $6.02 million in 2017-18 if he exercises his player option for that season.
McRoberts made 42 regular-season appearances last season after playing in just 17 games in 2014-15 because of injuries. He averaged 3.6 points, 2.5 rebounds and 1.9 assists.
Miami currently has 19 players under contract, which is one below the offseason limit.
