MIAMI -

The Miami Heat have reportedly signed former Bulls and Cavs forward Luol Deng.

Yahoo's Adrian Wojnarowski reports that Deng agreed to a 2-year, $20 million deal with Miami.

Deng averaged 16 points a game last season.

The former Duke star is known for his excellent defensive skills.

He will help fill the gap left by the departure of LeBron James to Cleveland.

Wojnarowski reports that Deng will have a one-year player option to the contract.

That will offer both the Heat and Deng flexibility.
