Miami Heat sign Juwan Howard for rest of season

The Miami Heat re-signed Juwan Howard for the rest of the season after inking him to the maximum of two 10-day contracts.

In those 20 days, Howard played a grand total of zero minutes, which says all you need to know about how the Heat view him. They clearly value his veteran presence, and he’ll surely appreciate a chance to win another ring. There’s definitely a mutual respect here.

By waiting so long to sign him, the Heat saved Howard from some wear and tear on his 74-year-old body. They probably won’t need to play him much, if it all, this season – they’ve won 25 straight without using him – but if they do, he should be fresh.
