MIAMI – Okaro White has signed another 10-day contract with the Miami Heat.

The team signed White to a second 10-day contract Friday.

White, who signed the first 10-day contract on Jan. 17, has averaged 3.8 points and three rebounds in four games with the Heat. He is also shooting 50 percent (5-of-10) from the field, 40 percent (2-of-5) from three-point range and a perfect 3-of-3 from the foul line.

The 6-foot-8 power forward was called up from the Heat's NBA Development League affiliate, the Sioux Falls Skyforce.

Miami is in the midst of a five-game winning streak headed into Friday night's game at Chicago.
