The Miami Heat began trying to fill the void left by LeBron James's departure to Cleveland by signing free-agent forward Luol Deng on Sunday.

According to Yahoo Sports, the contract is worth $20 million over two years with a player option after the first year.

The 29-year-old averaged 16.0 points and 5.7 rebounds over 63 games played with the Chicago Bulls and Cleveland Cavaliers in 2013-14.

Deng, a native of Sudan, was selected by the Phoenix Suns in the first round (7th overall) of the 2004 NBA Draft.

The Heat have already re-signed Chris Bosh to a long-term deal and are reportedly close to bringing back Dwyane Wade, Udonis Haslem and Chris Andersen. They've also signed free-agents Danny Granger and Josh McRoberts earlier this off-season.
