Miami Heat give Daryl Macon a two-way contractThe Miami Heat have decided that Daryl Macon is worth keeping around, and yesterday converted his deal into a two-way contract.

Macon didn't play much in preseason, but clearly impressed the team enough to give him a two-way. Which means he'll spend most of the 2019-20 season playing in the G League. But that's a clear step up from a contract that was probably going to be null and void by the time the NBA regular season starts this Tuesday.

Macon did big things in the G League last season as a two-way player with the Dallas Mavericks. Playing for the Texas Legends, he put up 19.0 points, 6.2 assists, 3.3 rebounds and 1.05 steals per game, in 34.5 minutes per outing.

The Heat were already familiar with Macon back in 2018, when he was a member of their summer league team.

Macon played two seasons of college ball at the University of Arkansas.
