The Miami Heat have signed free-agent big man Raphiael Putney, a league source told Amico Hoops on Thursday.
Putney is 6-foot-10 and went undrafted out of Massachusetts in 2014. His contract is most likely an Exhibit 10 deal that will result in Putney playing in the G-League.
Putney, 28, has played for the Rio Grande Valley Vipers of the G-League, and spent part of last season with the Erie Bayhawks. He was a G-League All-Star in 2016.
He has also played professionally in Saudi Arabia and Australia.
