MIAMI – Victor Oladipo will be returning to the Miami Heat next seasonn.

Shams Charania of Stadium reports that Oladipo has agreed to a deal to return.

Charania also reports that Oladipo will eye the 2022 free agency market and hope to sign a big contract once he’s fully healthy.

Oladipo is a two-time NBA All-Star.

He was traded to the Heat last season, but his time on the court was short lived.
