The Miami Heat are expected to be adding some depth to the front-court as they will sign Delon Wright after he clears waivers as him and the Washington Wizards agreed to a contract buyout according to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN. Wright had been with the Wizards since 2022, but now will join a Heat squad that is looking to make some noise after the All-Star break.

It seemed inevitable that Miami would be involved in the buyout market for several reasons as the team was silent at the NBA trade deadline after making a deal for Terry Rozier a few weeks ago. Plus, the Heat suffered injuries to two guards in last Sunday’s loss to the Boston Celtics where Rozier and Josh Richardson went down and are out for the foreseeable future.

Adding a guard seemed like the next move and they did just that with Wright who is a veteran that is looking to make an immediate impact with Miami. On the season so far, he is averaging 4.1 points, 2.5 assists, and 1.8 rebounds while shooting 39.3 percent from the field in 13.8 minutes per game.
