The Miami Heat announced that they have signed guard Briante Weber, though terms of the deal were not disclosed.
Weber is VCU's all-time career steals leader (374) and finished his career third on the NCAA’s steals list, only 12 shy from the record even though he missed the final 10 games of his senior season due to injury. He also is the three-time defending Atlantic 10 Defensive Player of the Year award winner.
Last season, Weber appeared in 20 games (19 starts) and averaged 8.1 points, 4.3 assists, 3.9 steals, and 3.7 rebounds in 26.5 minutes per game while shooting 40.1 percent from the field and 41.4 percent from three-point range.
To make room on the roster, Miami waived guard Corey Hawkins.
