Former Kentucky guard Mychal Mulder will have a chance to make an NBA roster this fall.
This evening, the Miami Heat announced they would be signing Mulder to a training camp deal after trading for his G League rights earlier in the day.

In Miami, Mulder will be joining his former Kentucky teammate and roommate Bam Adebayo, who voiced his support for the signing not long after it was made official.

Mulder spent last season with the Chicago Bulls’ G League affiliate, the Windy City Bulls, where he averaged 13.7 points, 4.1 rebounds, 1.6 assists in 32.9 minutes per contest.
Earlier today, Miami’s G League affiliate, the Sioux Falls Skyforce, reached a trade with Windy City for his rights.
The Heat have signed him to an Exhibit 10 contract, meaning he has a $50,000 guarantee by playing in the G League if he does not make the official Miami roster. He can also agree to a two-way deal with the franchise, which would allow him to split time in Miami and Sioux Falls this season.
Either way, Mulder is going to be making some money this year in the states.
Congratulations to the former Wildcat on the big news.
