Caleb Martin is coming off the best season of his career, and the Miami Heat are giving him three more years as a bonus.
Martin agreed to a three-year contract on Wednesday, which will begin with a forward contract that brings in $6.5 million next season and is worth $20.4 million over the full three years, a person familiar with the agreement told The Associated Press.
The person spoke to the Associated Press on the condition of anonymity because the Heat has not yet announced the signing of the deal.
Martin is coming out of his third season in the NBA, his first in Miami, and his career best in a slew of categories. He averaged 9.2 points and 3.8 rebounds in 60 games for the Heat, hitting 51% from the ground.
The Heat were 8-4 in the games Martin started this past season, when Miami finished the Eastern Conference record-best and capped the Eastern Finals.
