Heat sign Shannon Brown to one-year contract

Phil Jackson keeps putting guards out of work, but they keep finding new jobs.

Toure’ Murry signed with the Jazz, and now Shannon Brownwaived by the Knicks last month – also has a new contract.

Brown’s agency:

Sam Amick of USA Today:

Miami could offer only a minimum contract, worth $1,310,286 for Brown, though the NBA would cover $395,043 of that because he’s a veteran on a one-year minimum deal. No word on his guarantee.

Brown gives the Heat 16 players, but Shawne Williams, Justin Hamilton, Tyler Johnson and James Ennis don’t have fully guaranteed contracts. So, Brown is likely at least in that mix of players battling during training camp and the preseason.

This is mostly an uninspiring signing. Unlike Utah, which signed Murry, Miami is definitely trying to make the playoffs this season. Knicks rejects don’t exactly move the needle, but Brown could provide a little backcourt depth.

    That’s good news. Not saying Chris Brown….I mean Shannon Brown is a total game-changer, but the guy is a really good back-up player to have coming off your bench to give you a good spark. He should not be a FA this deep into the offseason.

      Brown was terrible for the Spurs on two 10 day contracts last season. On a team that will GET YOU OPEN SHOTS, he shot 28.6% in 10 games.

        Sure, judge someone on two 10 day contracts. That’s real smart.

        Just throw him in the mix on a team that has been together running their plays that they already know how to run and expect SB to act like hes been there forever.

        Even your very own precious Patty said it took him years to get used to the system. Look at him now.

    He’s a good athletic guard that can defend well and give Wade the rest that he’s going to need during the regular season. Of course Brown doesn’t move the needle, but they picked him up for depth, not as a final piece for a run at the 2014-2015 title. Miami is going to be a tough team next season in the East. They will be a tuning team. If you are losing to them in the regular season, might want to make some moves before the trade deadline if you are trying to get to the ECF.

      Exactly, nice Veteran addition behind Wade to give the little rest when needed.

    I’m still laughing that they drafted Napier as if that was going to get Lebron to stay.

    • dls612 - Aug 27, 2014 at 6:50 PM

      @Bologna I mean balsagna wait until 2016 chump! SO lebron can stay! Oh by the way I like this move by the heat

    • duhwighthoward - Aug 27, 2014 at 7:27 PM

      It is possible that LeBron returns to Miami next season.

      • zoomy123 - Aug 27, 2014 at 8:04 PM

        And leave Kyrie Irving and Kevin Love? LOL!

    From this point until the final round of training camp cuts, there won’t be any “inspired” signings. Unless someone can tell us who are the “inspiring” free agents on the market right now.

    The author saved me from having to say it…

    “Knicks rejects don’t exactly move the needle, but Brown could provide a little backcourt depth.”

    In Riley they trust. Hahahaha!

    • mazblast - Aug 27, 2014 at 9:43 PM

      David Stern is retired. Miami will have to work harder if they want another title.

      • cantonbound13 - Aug 28, 2014 at 5:13 AM

        so true!

    • miamatt - Aug 28, 2014 at 12:21 PM

      and yet, even Miami’s down years are far superior to anything the Knicks have been able to trot out in well over a decade…

  7. rodge1 - Aug 28, 2014 at 7:59 AM

    The haters are jealous because the Heat will make the playoffs even after losing LeBron. The Knicks are still garbage.

    Way to go! In Riley we trust! Lol !!!
