News: 20 hours agoOladipo (quad) agreed to a deal to return to the Heat on Wednesday, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.
Spin: Oladipo was traded to the Heat in March after averaging 21.2 points, 5.0 assists and 4.8 rebounds in 20 games for the Rockets. After just a few games with Miami, the 29-year-old was sidelined for over a month with knee soreness before eventually undergoing season-ending quad surgery. It was Oladipo's second surgery on his right quad in 28 months, and despite reports that he could be cleared for full-contact basketball in November, it severely impacted his market in free agency. It appears that the deal bringing the Indiana product back to the Heat is going to be a one-year contract, which will allow him to retest free agency next offseason -- although a long-term extension in Miami is not out of the question.
