Heat Sign Garrett, Days To Two-Way Deals; Give up smart, Mulder

The Heat have signed Marcus Garrett and Darius Days bilateral contracts, the team announced in a press release. Miami had to give up smart javont and Mychal Mulder to create space for Garrett and Days, who signed ahead of the club’s final Summer League game.

Garrett, a defensive-minded guard, impressed the Heat with his effort and athleticism. Miami signed him to a two-way deal after last year’s Summer League, then waived the 23-year-old in January.

Days, 22, was undrafted this year after spending four seasons at LSU. He averaged 13.7 points and 7.8 rebounds per game in his senior year. At 6’7″ and 245 pounds, Days possesses the size to play and defend multiple positions for Miami. He played in the summer league with Spurs.

Smart struggled in the California Classic and Las Vegas Summer League, but he’s only 23 years old. Mulder, 28, remains a proven three-point specialist who shot 40% from deep for the Warriors in 2020/21.

Heat remain on the hunt for Nets superstar Kevin Durant and jazz star Donovan Mitchell, both of which would require Miami to part ways with several young assets. The team seem eager to consider two young players as the possibility of a blockbuster deal looms.
