Chalmers signs two-year extension with Miami Heat

MIAMI (AP) – The Miami Heat signed free-agent forward Josh McRoberts and point guard Mario Chalmers on Monday.

Both deals were agreed to previously, but not signed until the Heat had more pieces of their salary-cap puzzle put into place. McRoberts signed a four-year deal that will pay him $5.3 million next season. Chalmers got a two-year deal that will have him earning about $4 million next season.

McRoberts averaged 8.5 points, 4.8 rebounds and 4.3 assists for Charlotte last season. Heat President Pat Riley says McRoberts was one of Miami’s “main targets” in free agency.

Chalmers has been with Miami for all six of his pro seasons, helping win two championships. He averaged 9.8 points and 4.9 assists last season and shot 38 percent from 3-point range.
