MIAMI – The Miami Heat and Victor Oladipo are running it back.

According to Shams Charania of The Athletic, Oladipo has agreed to a one-year deal worth $11 million with the Heat.

Oladipo is a former NBA All-Star who returned to the Heat last season from an extended absence due to injury.

He played sparingly while working his way back to full strength and should be a key cog in Miami’s rotation next season.

Another player reportedly returning to the Heat is big man Dewayne Dedmon.

The seven-foot center agreed to a two-year, $9 million contract with Miami, according to Charania.

Dedmon originally joined the Heat in April of 2021 and finished out the 2020-21 season, and then during that summer he re-signed with Miami for the 21-22 season.

Charania is also reporting P.J. Tucker is finalizing a three-year deal with the Philadelphia 76ers worth a full guaranteed $33.2 million.

Tucker, 37, was a solid contributor for Miami last season, providing consistent defense and an outside shooting threat.

He previously declined a one-year $7.4 million player option with the Heat in order to enter free agency.
