The Miami Heat signed veteran forward P.J. Tucker to a two-year, $15-million deal, sources told The Athletic's Shams Charania.

Tucker's deal reportedly includes a player option for the second season.

Milwaukee acquired Tucker from the Houston Rockets last March. While his offensive production dipped during the 2020-21 campaign, Tucker was a leader in the Bucks' locker room and continued to play solid defense.

The apparent addition of Tucker is the latest in a series of moves conducted by the Heat on the opening day of the NBA's free-agency negotiation period.

Miami reportedly signed six-time All-Star Kyle Lowry to an apparent three-year contract worth approximately $90 million in a sign-and-trade deal between the Toronto Raptors. The Heat also retained sharpshooter Duncan Robinson and are reportedly expected to agree on a maximum contract extension with franchise cornerstone Jimmy Butler worth over $184 million.
