West Virginia's Da'Sean Butler has signed a contract with the Miami Heat, which selected him in the second round of the NBA draft.

Da'Sean Butler, who was picked in the #42 slot, is still working to rehabilitate the knee which he injured in the Final Four. He had a second surgery over the summer to clean up some nagging problems. His timetable for a return to action is unclear at this point, but the Heat have shown confidence in signing him to a contract.

He finished his collegiate career as the winningest player in school history having totaled 107 wins.

Butler also ranks among the school's all-time leaders in double-figure scoring games (1st, 108), field goals made (3rd, 741), three-point field goals made (4th, 205), free throws made (5th, 408), rebounds (11th, 800) and steals (12th, 154).
