Subsequent free agent (FA) fronts renewed contracts with Goran Dragic, Meyers Leonard and Udonis Haslem, as well as guard Avery Bradley and forward Maurice Harkless .
Jae Crowder (now Phoenix Suns), Derrick Jones Jr. (now Portland Trail Blazers) and Solomon Hill (now Atlanta Hawks) have moved, but are steadily moving towards the fourth victory in franchise history. And the roaster is solidifying.
Heat also succeeded in extending the contract with Bam Adebayo , who greatly supported the final advancement last season . On the 29th, Heat officially announced that he had signed an extension contract with Adebayo, and Pat Riley, president of the team, said in the release:
“One of the most important things a franchise can do is to do its best and formally sign a young, foundational player. It goes without saying that he will sign an extension contract with Bam. , Because he will continue to play an active part in this team. This extension contract is great not only for Heat, but also for fans and Bam. “
Although Jimmy Butler, who played an active role as a league leader in the heat, has grown not only as a patrol in the paint area but also as an offense, Adebayo averaged 15.9 in the third year of his career last season. Score 10.2 Rebound 5.1 Assist 1.1 Steel 1.3 Block marked.
In addition to being named the All-Star for the first time, he was also selected as the All-Defensive Second Team, showing his unique role in winning the Eastern Conference in the playoffs last season.
Adebayo’s contract is $ 163 million for five years (about 16,789 million yen). According to John Holinger of The Athletic, if Adebayo is selected for the Season MVP, All-NBA First Team, or Best Defensive Player Award this season, the total amount will jump up to $ 193 million (about 19,879 million).

It can be said that the devoted Big Man, who has a strong body and amazing physical ability and takes the initiative in even simple work, is well worth the extension contract of the maximum amount. I can’t wait to see what kind of performance Adebayo will perform this season.
