The Miami Heat are in agreement on a one-year deal with former first-round pick Alec Burks, ESPN reported Wednesday.

Financial terms were not reported. The Heat will be his eighth team.

The swingman averaged 10.4 points per game off the bench this past season with the Detroit Pistons and New York Knicks, who acquired him at the trade deadline in February. Burks went on to average 14.8 points and 20.2 minutes per game over six playoff games for the Knicks.

Burks averages 10.8 points in 742 career games (144 starts) in 13 seasons, most notably with the Utah Jazz, who selected him No. 12 overall in the 2011 draft. Burks played eight seasons in Utah.

He is a career 38.3 percent shooter from the 3-point line.
