Miami Heat Officially Sign Reggie Williams

The Miami Heat signed guard Reggie Williams Tuesday, the team announced. Miami and Williams reportedly agreed on a one-year deal last week.

Williams, who played briefly for the Oklahoma City Thunder last season, will add some scoring punch to the Heat’s bench. The 28-year-old has played for the Golden State Warriors, Charlotte Bobcats Hornets and three games with the Thunder.

He is a 37 percent three-point shooter for his career and will have a chance to enter Miami’s rotation with the departure of James Jones and Ray Allen.The Heat refer to Williams as a guard in the press release, further putting the return of Allen in doubt.

Williams will be slotted behind Dwyane Wade on the depth chart and compete for playing time with James Ennis and Danny Granger. However, Williams may fill the role as a three-point specialist.

His most successful season came in 2010-11 as a member of the Warriors when he appeared in 80 games (nine starts) and averaged 9.2 points, 2.7 rebounds, 1.5 assists and 20.3 minutes while shooting 42.3 percent from three-point range, connecting on a career-high 102 three-point field goals.

Here is the shot chart from that season, via NylonCalculus.com.

If the Heat can something close to that three-point efficiency out of Williams this season, it will be a great signing.
