Purvis registered 23 points (9-19 FG, 2-9 3Pt, 3-5 FT), seven rebounds, five assists, three steals and a blocked shot in the win Wednesday over the Wolves.
Purvis has taken a drastic step back in terms of scoring during his second G League season, averaging 13.1 points compared to the 20.5 he put together with Lakeland in 2017-18. That's in large part because he's seeing significantly less minutes as part of a structured rotation among the current group of Sioux Falls guards where the likes of Bubu Palo, Briante Weber and DeAndre Liggins have seen significant minutes in recent games.
Purvis scored 25 points to go along with four rebounds and seven assists during the win Monday over the Salt Lake City Stars.
Purvis led the Skyforce in minutes Monday, acting as the secondary scoring option behind center Raphiael Putney. Through five games, Purvis is averaging 16.8 points per contest and is boasting a healthy 48 percent from the field.
Purvis spent the 2017-18 campaign with Orlando, but saw action in just 16 total games at the NBA level and spent the bulk of his time in the G-League. Despite being signed Thursday, the Heat are likely just trying to acquire his G-League rights and Purvis should be released at some point in the coming week in order to join Miami's affiliate.
Purvis was waived by the Celtics on Monday, Shams Charania of Yahoo! Sports reports.
Purvis has been on three different rosters over the last few weeks following a flurry of trades, but as expected, has now been released in order to open up a roster spot in Boston. He'll look to latch on with another organization for training camp in September, though there's no guarantee he ends up making a final roster. Purvis played in 16 games with Orlando as a rookie last season, averaging 6.0 points, 1.7 rebounds and 1.1 assists across 18.1 minutes.
