  2. How U! Roger Mason signs on with Miami Heat

    Roger Mason Jr. Hornets

    Miami is always on the lookout for veterans they think they can bring on a minimum deal they think can help the team. Apparently Roger Mason fits that bill as he can still knock down the three ball (41.5 percent from deep last season). Mason announced he has signed with the Heat on twitter. I'm…

  3. Heat may only carry 13 players with guaranteed contracts

    Sep 10, 2013, 11:03 PM EST

    Juwan Howard, Dwyane Wade, Jarvis Varnado

    The Miami Heat added two players on non-guaranteed deals to their roster on Tuesday, but both are in all likelihood only going to appear as training camp bodies. Already deep into luxury tax territory for next season — which is obviously a concern, considering the decision to cut Mike Miller using the amnesty provision built…

  4. Agent refutes report that Heat’s Jarvis Varnado is close to signing overseas

    Jarvis Varnado

    Jarvis Varnado is a project player on the Heat’s roster that joined the squad in January of last season. He was inactive during the playoffs, but is under contract with Miami for the upcoming season. That small fact means that Varnado can’t sign elsewhere without the Heat’s permission. A report surfaced over the weekend that…

  5. American players stashed overseas, it doesn’t work out all that often

    At least six players American college players drafted in the second round — including James Ennis of Miami and Colton Iverson of the Boston Celtics — and as many as 11 total could sign their first contract overseas. It’s a full blown trend — for a long time NBA teams had drafted European players then…

  6. Heat prospect James Ennis likely to play overseas next season

    Raptors Heat Basketball

    When the Heat made a draft night trade for late second round pick James Ennis, it appeared as though the team would be interested in having him compete for a spot on the roster. After getting a look at Ennis during both the Orlando and the Las Vegas Summer Leagues, however, the team has decided…

    After agreeing to terms with Greg Oden on Friday, the Miami Heat now have 13 players who will be on guaranteed contracts for next season. They have the rights to a 14th in Jarvis Varnado, but his deal is not fully guaranteed just yet. If Miami is to max its roster out with 15 guaranteed…

  8. Greg Oden signing could have the Heat looking to move Joel Anthony

    Now that Greg Oden is in the fold with the Miami Heat, there are other big men around the league that will be affected by his decision. But there also might be some on Oden’s new team that could find themselves playing elsewhere before the season begins. Miami has more bigs than the team will…

  9. Odom wants to stay in L.A., but does anyone want him?

    Lamar Odom

    Greg Oden, who last played in the NBA in 2009 and has had multiple major knee surgeries since then, got a contract for next season before Lamar Odom. Which tells you about how far Odom’s stock has fallen. He is battling Antawn Jamison and Al Harrington for the “veteran forward at the end of the…

  10. Bigger, stronger Jonas Valanciunas pushes Heat around in Summer League

    Jul 14, 2013, 11:45 AM EST

    Raptors Heat Basketball

    LAS VEGAS — Not a lot of people noticed, but at Jonas Valanciunas had a nice rookie season up in Toronto: 8.9 points and 6.2 rebounds a game, he shot 48 percent in post up spots and 62 percent as the roll man in the pick-and-roll. He had a PER of 15.6. All of those…

  11. Harrison Barnes, Dion Waiters threw down huge dunks Monday (VIDEO)

    Harrison Barnes, Nando de Colo

    There were a couple of monster dunks on Monday we thought you’d enjoy. Above, that is Harrison Barnes (who we know can throw down) driving and then throwing it down over the Spurs Aron Baynes. I want Barnes to enter the dunk contest next year, then see if he can get some big man to just…

  12. Report: Heat to sign Jarvis Varnado for remainder of season

    Jarvis Varnado

    Jarvis Varnado has barely touched the court for the Heat — 12 minutes total in two games during his two 10-day contracts with the team. But they must like what they are seeing in practice from the former Mississippi State forward — they are going to sign him for the rest of the season, tweets…
