Walton was waived by the Bulls on Saturday.
Walton, who saw 147 minutes for the Heat last season, struggled to find run for Chicago during the preseason. It's possible he finds another camp deal prior to the beginning of the season, but a likely scenario is that he continues his career in the G-League or overseas.
Walton was on a two-way contract with the Heat last season, but was ultimately let go this summer after having his qualifying offer pulled. He'll now join the Bulls for training camp, though Walton will still likely be a long shot to make the final roster barring any surprises. In 27 G-League games with Miami's affiliate, the 23-year-old averaged 16.1 points, 4.0 rebounds, 7.1 assists and 1.5 steals across 32.4 minutes.
Walton had 15 points (6-13 FG, 1-7 3Pt, 2-4 FT), five assists, two rebounds and one block in 32 minutes during Saturday's 74-72 summer league loss to the Celtics.
Walton, along with the rest of the Heat roster, did very little to impress in Saturday's loss to Boston. After receiving a two-way deal last season, chances are that will be the best he can hope for again this season. He could even struggle to reach that goal again and could be resigned to the G-League from opening night.
Walton posted 15 points (4-9 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 6-9 FT), 11 assists, five rebounds and three steals across 29 minutes during Thursday's 110-106 summer league win over New Orleans.
Walton, who secured a double-double, also led the team in assists and steals. Prior to Thursday's performance, he had been averaging 7.2 points, 5.8 assists and 2.2 steals across 26.6 minutes during five summer league games.
After going undrafted out of Michigan, Walton spent last season on a two-way deal with the Heat, seeing action in just 16 total NBA games. Instead, a large portion of his season was with the team's G-League affiliate, where he played in 27 games and averaged 16.1 points, 4.0 rebounds, 7.1 assists and 1.5 steals across 32.4 minutes. Now that the Heat have pulled his qualifying offer, Walton becomes an unrestricted free agent and will have the ability to sign with any team he pleases. That said, it seems likely the The 6-foot-1 guard will have to settle for another two-way deal or simply start the year off in the G-League or overseas.
