Miami Heat sign Terrel Harris to Roster

Steve Mitchell-US PRESSWIRE

 

In a move to fill out the roster in time for training camp, the Miami Heat are bringing back Terrel Harris to the fold on September 10.

Harris was a surprise addition to the Heat roster when the 2011-12 NBA season began. Harris made the team and Miami waived Eddie House to make a spot for him.

Like fellow rookie Mickell Gladness, Harris played sparingly throughout the season. However as LeBron James and Dwyane Wade suffered early in the the season Harris was able to show flashes of why Heat head coach Erik Spoelstra and president Pat Riley chose him over House. No game was this more evident than on January 5 when Miami was on the road against the Atlanta Hawks. In a game where neither James or Wade were able to play that turned into a triple overtime thriller, Harris grabbed a career high 14 rebounds to go along with nine points.

Harris was kept able to stay on the roster for the duration of the season and the playoffs. He played in the final minutes of Game 5 of the NBA Finals when the Heat won the championship against the Oklahoma City Thunder.

In the off season Harris was not extended a qualifying offer from Miami and became a free agent. Harris played for the Heat in the Summer League.

While he’s back in the fold for training camp, Harris has a tougher path to making the roster this time around. This is mainly due to Miami’s desire to fortify their front line along with the arrival of Ray Allen via free agency. Allen is almost certain to become Wade’s primary backup. Harris does have point guard skills so he can possibly become the third string in that position behind Mario Chalmers and Norris Cole.

The path is hard for Harris, but he has surprised people before. Maybe he’ll do it again.

Dwyane Wade Makes Brooklyn Nets Look Foolish

You gotta give the Brooklyn Nets credit: Despite looking incredibly foolish at times in front of their home crowd, they competed against the Miami Heat on Tuesday night and only lost by four points. That said, you wouldn't know it from this epic clip of Dwyane Wade dribbling circles around multiple Nets and ultimately hitting a stellar fadeaway jumper.

Gerald Green Throws Down Monstrous Slam On Nets

Gerald Green hasn't been the most consistent player throughout the early stages of his young career, but there's no denying his overwhelming athleticism. Against the floundering Brooklyn Nets this evening, Green showcased some of those said abilities by emphatically throwing down a monstrous dunk, and he caught some major air in the process. If he's ever able to learn how to do it night-in and night out, Green is going to be an All-Star one day.

Harden, Wade Ice Game For Their Team in Final Min

Two of the best shooting (if not the two best) guards in the game both put their clutch gene on display last night. Within a few minutes of each other, Dwyane Wade and then James Harden both hit step-back jumpers in the final minute of the 4th quarter that iced the game for their team.
