On the same day Miami inked their starting point guard of the present and future in the form of Goran Dragic ($90 million), it appears depth could also be imminent.

JJ Barea is reportedly leaning toward signing with the Miami Heat, according to NBA.com’s David Aldridge.

As for how the over-the-cap Heat can sign the 31-year-old free agent, it would likely be an exception ($3.4 million) or for the veteran’s minimum.

Barea averaged 7.5 points and 3.4 assists last season with the Mavs, shooting 42 percent from the field and 32 percent from three.
