Former Kentucky Wildcat Marcus Lee has found a spot in the NBA, as he’s signed with the Miami Heat, the team announced Wednesday.

Lee played for Kentucky for three years before transferring to California to finish his college career. Lee posted his best numbers for Kentucky in the 2015-16 season, when he averaged 6.4 points, six rebounds and 1.6 blocks per game. He won two SEC Tournament titles and was a member of the 38-1 team that made the Final Four.

Lee had his career-best season at Cal, though, as he averaged 11.4 points, 7.2 rebounds and 1.6 blocks as a redshirt senior.

He played in the NBA Summer League with the Cleveland Cavaliers. He averaged 6.1 points, 4.7 rebounds and 1.6 blocks. He also shot 70 percent from the field.

With this signing, 11 players from the 2014-15 38-1 team have signed with an NBA team.

Lee will join fellow former Wildcat Bam Adebayo, who’s now going into his second year in the NBA.
