Miami Heat Waives Terrel Harris

Jeff Hanisch-USA TODAY Sports

The Miami Heat are trying to address their rebounding woes by freeing up a roster spot.

Miami has waived guard Terrel Harris today, five days before his contract would become guaranteed for the remainder of the 2012-13 NBA season.

Harris has been mostly a bench warmer for the Heat this season, and has only seen playing time when the team was in a blowout situation. This was expected as Ray Allen was signed last off season. The move eliminated any chance Harris had at becoming a regular rotation player for Miami. Still, he was kept on the roster as insurance in case either Dwyane Wade or Allen were sidelined by injury for a prolonged period.

The Heat saw Harris as an undercover asset at last season’s shortened training camp. He was kept on the roster throughout the season and played the final minutes of Game of the NBA Finals as Miami won its second championship in franchise history. The team brought Harris back for the Summer League and seemed to heave been grooming him for an eventual rotation role. Unfortunately for him, Miami’s lack of size on the roster and subsequent poor rebounding made him expendable.

With a roster spot now open, the Heat will likely go after a big man. The pickings for available big men are slim though. A couple of long shot options for Miami include Chris Anderson and Mickell Gladness, who has been on the roster before.

Despite waiving him, this could not be the end for Harris and the Heat. Miami can bring him back on a ten-day contract.

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.
