The Score is reporting that Briante Weber has signed a training camp deal with the Miami Heat. Details are not yet public, but Hoops Rumors is reporting that Briante is the 19th man on the preseason roster, which caps off at 20. It will be tough competition for Briante to make the final cut, but there will be D-league opportunities as well. VCU fans know the energy and enthusiasm that comes along with Weber, and will likely expect to see Briante in a Heat jersey this season.
Congrats are in order for Briante Weber, who bounced back this summer from a VCU career ending ACL injury in his final season with the Rams. Just 6 steals away from the NCAA all-time record, Briante is back on track to continue pursuing his NBA aspirations.
