Mar 2, 2015 1:01 PM

The Miami Heat have reached agreement with Henry Walker on a second 10-day contract, a league source told RealGM.

Walker — formerly known as Bill — has persevered to resurrect his career in the NBA, using the Heat’s affiliate of Sioux Falls as a platform to earn a call up this season. As an active, floor-spacing wing, Walker played for the Boston Celtics (2008-10) and New York Knicks (2010-12) over four seasons.

Walker’s first 10-day deal ends on Monday.

After averaging 15 points for Sioux Falls in the D-League, Walker has scored 11.8 points in 27.9 minutes per game over four contests with the Heat.

Walker starred at Kansas State in 2007-08 alongside current teammate Michael Beasley. He has also played for overseas teams, including in Venezuela, and had seriously considered spending the season abroad before recommitting to the D-League in the preseason.

Dragic also made comments to the media suggesting the Suns were untrustworthy, which set off Ryan McDononough and Lon Babby.

Dragic was traded at the deadline to the Miami Heat.
