Free agent forward Luol Deng has agreed to a two-year, $20 million deal with the Miami Heat, league source tells Yahoo Sports.

Deng had been searching for a deal worth more than $12 million annually, but apparently has agreed to take his talents to South Beach for less. The Atlanta Hawks, Phoenix Suns, and Dallas Mavericks all showed interest in Deng as well.

The Heat may not be the powerhouse team we saw the last four years, but they will not be going away either.
Deng, a two-time All-Star, averaged 16.0 points and 5.7 rebounds per game last season with the Cleveland Cavaliers and Chicago Bulls. Miami has some big shoes to fill at the small forward position, but they are well on their way, as you could do much worse than Luol Deng.
