Official Heat News: Just In Miami Heat Confirm The Signing Of Another Top Talented Highly Rated NBA Star

Heat First NBA Team to Fill All Two-Way Contract Slots for 2024/25 Season


The Miami Heat have become the first NBA team to fill all three of their two-way contract slots for the 2024/25 season. They announced that they have signed forward Keshad Johnson to a two-way deal.

Johnson, a 6’7″ swingman who went undrafted out of Arizona, played his first four NCAA seasons at San Diego State before transferring to the Wildcats for his “super-senior” year.

In the 2023/24 season, he averaged 11.5 points, 5.9 rebounds, 1.8 assists, 1.0 steals, and 0.7 blocks per game, with shooting percentages of .530/.387/.710. He agreed to a two-way deal with the Heat shortly after last week’s draft.

Johnson joins Zyon Pullin and Dru Smith as Miami’s two-way players, with all three officially signing their contracts today. While the July moratorium prevents teams from finalizing certain transactions, two-way deals can be completed during this period.

Although two-way contracts don’t count against the salary cap and offer little guaranteed money, it’s not certain that Johnson, Pullin, and Smith will still hold these slots by opening night. The Heat still have two-way qualifying offers out to Cole Swider and Alondes Williams. However, the trio currently under contract is expected to have an opportunity to start the season on Miami’s 18-man roster.
