Wayne Ellington has agreed upon a one-year, $6.27 million deal with the Miami Heat.

Ellington signed a two-year, $12 million deal with the Heat in 2016.

Discussions between Ellington and the Heat dragged out due to Miami's hesitancy to go heavily into the luxury tax.

Because Ellington signed a one-year deal and has full Bird Rights next summer, he cannot be traded this season without his permission.
