Macon has signed a training camp contract with the Heat, Anthony Chiang of the Miami Herald reports.
Macon appeared in eight games for the Mavericks last season, totaling 29 points, 12 rebounds, seven assists and a steal in 90 minutes. He'll fight for a roster spot with the Heat, though it seems unlikely that he'll make the cut.
Macon was waived by the Mavericks on Friday, Callie Caplan of The Dallas Morning News reports.
The decision opens up a two-way spot for the Mavericks, and it's possible the organization has its eyes on someone already. Macon appeared in eight games last season for Dallas, totaling 29 points, 12 rebounds, seven assists and a steal in 90 minutes.
Macon collected 16 points (5-11 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 4-6 FT), four assists, one rebound, one steal and one block across 29 minutes during the Mavericks' 96-92 win over the Nets in a Las Vegas Summer League game Friday.
The second-year pro saw eight games of regular-season action with the Mavericks during his rookie season, averaging 11.3 minutes while posting 3.6 points and 1.5 rebounds per contest. Macon was very productive while suiting up for 41 games (37 starts) with the Texas Legends, however, with averages of 19.0 points and 6.2 assists serving as his statistical highlights. He's in Las Vegas to gain further seasoning against a potentially tougher level of competition, and his performance Friday certainly made for an encouraging start to his tenure in the desert.
Macon (coach's decision) failed to leave the bench Monday in the Mavericks' 116-106 loss to the Bucks.
Macon picked up some run in garbage time in the Mavs' previous contest Saturday in Indiana, but there weren't any opportunities for him to play Monday with Dallas keeping the contest competitive throughout. The rookie out of Arkansas has logged just two appearances at the NBA level this season and should move back to the G League's Texas Legends in the near future.
Macon supplied 15 points (5-12 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 3-4 FT), seven assists, one rebound and two steals across 37 minutes in Wednesday's 123-113 road loss to the South Bay Lakers.
The Arkansas rookie has started 10 games for the Legends, leading the team in scoring with 22.6 points per game. Those scoring stats include 2.1 made threes per contest. Expect the outsider sharpshooter to continue to see big minutes for the Legends.
