Heat Pick Up Contract Option On Kapono

By Bruin Basketball Report

The NBA Champions, the Miami Heat, picked up the second-year contract option on former UCLA Bruin Jason Kapono.

Kapano made $1.1 million in 2005-06 and is scheduled to make $1.18 next season with the Heat.

The 6'8 swingman averaged 4.1 points in 51 games and shot 40% from beyond the three-point arc last season.

Kapono was initially a second-round draft pick by the Cleveland Cavaliers in the 2003 NBA draft, and then was selected by the Charlotte Bobcats in the team's expansion draft in 2004. He signed with the Heat as a free-agent in 2005.
