Free agent point guard Briante Weber has agreed to a partially-guaranteed contract with the Miami Heat according to Shams Charania of Yahoo. The nature of a partially-guaranteed deal means it is essentially a training camp invite.

The former Virginia Commonwealth standout has bounced around the league after going undrafted in 2015. Weber spent the 2017-2018 season with the Memphis Grizzlies and Houston Rockets, averaging 2.8 points per contest. In total, Weber has spent time with the Grizzlies, Heat, Golden State Warriors, Charlotte Hornets, and Rockets.
For his career, Weber has averaged 3.2 points, 1.9 rebounds, and 1.4 assists per game. In his first stint with the Heat, Weber only appeared in one regular season NBA game. However, he spent a considerable amount of time in the G league with Miami. He profiles as a defensive-minded point guard, but faces stiff competition to make the roster. Currently, the Heat have Gorman Dragic, Dion Waiters, Tyler Johnson, Rodney McGruder, and Wayne Ellington in their backcourt. Add Dwyane Wande to that list should he decide to play this season.
