(The Sports Xchange) - Miami Heat president Pat Riley continues to move on without LeBron James, announcing three signings on Monday.

The Heat officially re-signed guard Mario Chalmers and signed free agent forwards Josh McRoberts and Danny Granger.

The signings come one day after forward Luol Deng signed a two-year deal with the Heat worth $10 million per season.

The Heat plan to team Deng with the freshly re-signed Chris Bosh and also hope to re-sign free agent Dwyane Wade in the wake of James' decision to return home to the Cleveland Cavaliers.

The Dallas Mavericks acquired forward Greg Smith from the Chicago Bulls in exchange for the rights to Tadija Dragicevic.

Smith (6-foot-10, 250 pounds) is a three-year veteran and holds averages of 3.5 points, 2.5 rebounds and 14.4 minutes in 89 career games (10 starts) with the Houston Rockets.

Dragicevic (6-foot-9, 222 pounds) was selected by the Utah Jazz with the 53rd overall pick in the 2008 draft.
