Heat exercise option on big man Adebayo

Heat center Bam Adebayo appeared in 69 games last season.

The Miami Heat have exercised their third-year option on center Bam Adebayo, the team announced in a news release.

Adebayo is 6-foot-10 and was selected with the No. 14 overall draft pick in 2017. He appeared in 69 games last season and averaged 6.9 points on 51-percent shooting, as well as 5.5 rebounds.

“Adebayo’s fourth-year option, which the Heat will have to decide on next summer, would pay him $5,115,492 for the 2020-21 season,” Arthur Hill of HoopsRumors wrote.

The Heat recently re-signed power forward/center Udonis Haslem, and are still trying to lure veteran guard Dwayne Wade back to the team.
