Yante Maten Rumors
Meanwhile, undrafted Georgia forward Yante Maten continues to consider an offer from the Heat and has interest from several other teams. Because the Heat gave Macon well over a week to decide whether to accept its offer, Brown and Macon reciprocated by giving the Heat a chance to match Dallas’ offer.
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.
