MIAMI — Josh McRoberts has agreed to sign a four-year contract with the Miami Heat, a deal that could be worth about $23 million.
His agent, Mike Conley Sr., said Monday McRoberts will get the full mid-level exception, starting at about $5.3 million next season. Contracts begin getting signed Thursday.
McRoberts averaged 8.5 points in 78 starts for Charlotte last season, and raised Miami's ire in the playoffs by leveling LeBron James with an elbow that some Heat players said looked intentional. McRoberts was issued only a common foul at the time, but the NBA upgraded it to a flagrant-2 and fined him $20,000.
Miami is waiting to see if James, and other free agents Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh, will be re-signing with the Heat.
Miami will be McRoberts' sixth club.
