More on Daryl Macon Free Agency

Anthony Chiang: Heat announces the signing of guard Daryl Macon, which brings the roster to the preseason limit of 20 players.
The Heat, with one training camp roster spot to fill, recently summoned a familiar face to team headquarters: former Arkansas point guard Daryl Macon. Macon, undrafted after being second-team All-SEC in 2018, spent summer league with the Heat in 2018 but afterward opted to sign a two-way deal with Dallas that summer instead of an Exhibit 10 contract with Miami. ... He has emerged as a strong possibility for the 20th and final roster spot, though others haven’t completely been ruled out.
Chuck Cooperstein: Mavs sign @_dmacon4 to a 2 yr/2 way deal. He can shoot it. 42% from 3 last year for Arkansas. But his story is stunning. He took Mavs deal rather than MIA for the $$. Not so notable except for the fact that the man was facing homelessness.
The Heat has offered contracts to both undrafted Arkansas point guard Daryl Macon and undrafted Georgia forward Yante Maten, their agents said Saturday. Both are considering the offers but also are weighing opportunities with other teams, the agents said.
According to their agents, the offers from the Heat and other teams are known as an exhibit 10, which guarantees $50,000 whether the player makes the team or not. If they sign with Miami, either would then stand to earns close to $35,000 if assigned to the Heat’s G-League team in South Dakota but close to $700,000 if either makes the Heat.

James Ennis discusses free agency

With teams and players able to negotiate free-agent deals beginning on Monday at 6:00pm ET, the 31-year-old will enter the new league year as a coveted three-and-D wing. “I’ve been in the league for a while,” Ennis told Hoops Rumors in a phone interview this week. “I’m in the league for a reason, obviously. Good vet, a good locker room guy, good teammate all-around. I just want to win. That’s my biggest thing.”

The veteran forward will enter free agency armed with a respectable 41-game sample that should make him an appealing under-the-radar target for teams in need of a wing. “I like Orlando a lot. When I first got here, I got an opportunity — and that’s all you can ask from a coach,” said Ennis, who was dealt from the Sixers to the Magic at the 2020 deadline. “I’ve definitely enjoyed the city and I’ve made a lot of good memories with my daughter.”
