Marcus Lee signs deal with the Miami Heat

Twitter | @MiamiHEAT

Former Kentucky forward Marcus Lee will get a shot in the NBA down in Miami.

Lee signed with the Miami Heat today, according to the team’s official Twitter account. Terms of the deal were not disclosed, per club policy.

Lee played for the Cleveland Cavaliers in the NBA Summer League. He appeared in seven games (five starts) in Las Vegas with averages of 6.1 points, 4.7 rebounds and 1.57 blocks in 15.9 minutes of action, while shooting 70 percent (21-of-30) from the field.

The former Kentucky Wildcat joins another former Wildcat, Bam Adebayo, in the Miami paint. The two could’ve been teammates in Lee’s senior season at UK, if not for his transfer to Cal.

Congrats, Marcus!

    Not a two-way contract, but a true roster spot?

    Don’t forget Pat Riley, Bam is not the only former Cat that is a part of the Heat organization.

    Always liked this guy. Wish he had stayed at UK. Could have made a nice living without basketball.
