Weber was released by the Heat on Saturday, Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.
Weber saw a relatively healthy workload throughout the preseason, but failed to make enough of an impression to land on the Heats' final roster. In the end, it appears Miami was content with its backcourt depth. The journeyman has played on five different teams across three seasons, and will now look to find a new opportunity.
Weber finished with 14 points (4-11 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 5-6 FT), four steals, three rebounds, and three assists in 22 minutes during Wednesday's 140-128 preseason victory over the Pelicans.
Weber was able to make an impact off the bench Wednesday against a depleted Pelicans outfit. It was a good night for the journeyman as he looks to secure himself a permanent roster spot after a number of seasons floating around the league. An effort like this will certainly do him no harm in his search for permanency but even still, he has no fantasy value at this point.
Weber has bounced around the league over the last three years, spending time on five different rosters. In his most recent 2017-18 campaign, Weber played in a combined 18 games between the Grizzlies and Rockets and averaged 2.8 points, 1.9 rebounds, 1.2 assists and 1.0 steal across 13.2 minutes. The fact that his new contract is only partially guaranteed means it's essentially a training camp deal, so Weber will have to have a strong showing during camp and the preseason to have a shot at a final roster spot with the Heat. As of now, the guard is likely on the outside looking in.
Weber went off for 15 points (7-11 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 1-2 FT), four rebounds, three steals, and one assist in 34 minutes during Monday's 118-115 loss to the Nets.
Weber led the team in minutes and steals while contributing a career high scoring total. He has seen 20-plus minutes in each of the last three games, and Weber is getting the nod over veteran backup point guard Mario Chalmers, who was a healthy scratch.
Weber spent 13 games with the Rockets earlier this season, averaging 2.0 points, 1.4 rebounds and 1.0 assist across 9.1 minutes per game. The signing makes sense considering the plethora of injuries the Grizzlies are currently dealing with in their backcourt. As a result, Weber could find himself in a prominent role off the bench as soon as he lands in Memphis.
