The Miami HEAT announced today that they have signed forward Darius Days and guard Marcus Garrett to two-way contracts. Per club policy, terms of the deals were not disclosed. In addition, Miami has waived Mychal Mulder and Javonte Smart.
Days, who played all four collegiate seasons at LSU from 2018-22, recently appeared in three Summer League games with the San Antonio Spurs averaging 13.7 points and 10.0 rebounds in 21.8 minutes of action while shooting 55.6 percent from the field, 37.5 percent from three-point range and a perfect 5-of-5 from the line. He led the team in rebounds and scored in double-figures in each of the three games. Days finished his LSU career as just one of 10 players in school history to record at least 1,300 points and 800 rebounds and became just the third LSU player since 1978 to have at least 1,300 points, 800 rebounds and 125 steals. He recorded 85 career wins, the most in school history over the last 25 years. Among the all-time school leaders, Days finished 10th in rebounds (830), 20th in steals (125) and 28th in points (1,305).
Garrett, who originally signed a two-way contract with the HEAT on September 2, 2021 before being waived on January 16, appeared in 12 games with the HEAT last season before undergoing season-ending wrist surgery. He recently appeared in three Summer League games (two starts) with the HEAT and averaged 7.3 points, 4.3 rebounds, 1.3 assists and 1.00 steals. Garrett was a three-time Big 12 All-Defensive Team selection at Kansas, finishing with 181 career steals, tying the 10th-most in school history.
Mulder, who was signed to a two-way contract by the HEAT on March 24, appeared in two games with Miami last season averaging 7.0 points, 1.5 rebounds, 1.0 assists and 22.1 minutes.
Smart, who was signed to a two-way contract by the HEAT on February 15, appeared in four games with Miami last season averaging 5.0 points and 1.3 rebounds in 10.0 minutes of action.
