ESPN Sad News: Miami Heat Fans Favorite Star Signs With Rivals After Rejecting New Deal With Heat

Miami Heat Lose Key Point Guard to Bucks in Free Agency


Delon Wright is signing a one-year contract with the Milwaukee Bucks, leaving the Miami Heat with questions about their point guard depth. Wright’s deal is worth $3.3 million, the veteran minimum, according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.

Wright joined the Heat in February after being bought out by the Washington Wizards. With family ties to the organization—his older brother Dorell played for the Heat from 2004 to 2010—Wright was a candidate to return this summer.


With Wright heading to the Bucks, the Heat have only one point guard, Terry Rozier, under contract. While guards Tyler Herro, Duncan Robinson, and Josh Richardson have some playmaking experience, the team still needs more depth at the position. Undrafted point guard Zyon Pullin is also on a two-way contract with the Heat.

Wright, 32, averaged 5.4 points and 2.6 assists in 14 games with the Heat last season.

Potential free agent point guards available for a veteran minimum salary include Aaron Holiday, Cameron Payne, Patrick Beverley, Malachi Flynn, Spencer Dinwiddie, Kris Dunn, Jordan Goodwin, and Talen Horton-Tucker.
