Miami Heat Sign Josh Harrellson


Josh Harrellson, the former New York Knicks’ big man, has joined the Miami Heat it was announced today. Per the Herald: “Harrellson, 6-10 and 275 pounds, impressed the Heat in a week of workouts recently. Harrellson averaged 4.4 points, 3.9 rebounds and 14.6 minutes in 37 games for the Knicks last season, including four starts. Harrellson, whose season was interrupted by wrist surgery, made 20 of 59 three-pointers. Drafted 45th overall by New Orleans in 2011, Harrelson was immediately traded to the Knicks. New York dealt him to Houston last month as part of the Marcus Camby trade. But the Rockets released him last week. [...] The Heat opted to sign Harrellson over several other available veteran centers, including Darko Milicic, Chris Anderson, Mehmet Okur and Eddy Curry, who spent last season with the Heat.”

    this was a stupid pick up! we should have signed bird man or darko! hell even okur would have been a better option. smh im disappointed in Pat Riley for this one…

  • MrSuper

    He’s a solid 4/5 that can contribute as a role for the Heat. Good choice IMO

    wow how much roster space does this team have. seems like there is a new signing everyday, im assuming there will be cuts at training camp, but damn.

    Good pick up. Solid at the least.

    Harrelson provides exactly what the heat need. He might not be as big a name as the other guys. But he can contribute. And seems to have a good attitude.

    NO! Not the Heat Jorts! Come back to NY next year bud.

  • pops

    You can really tell who knows the game of basketball on here and who does not. Just cause someone hasn’t been in the league for very long or have a household name doesn’t mean that player is a terrible option. Harrellson has great hands, and a great mind for the game. He will help the heat with some defense in the paint and fouls to give down low.

  • flffl

    i agree he has huge potential im glad they went with him

  • hththht

    I believe that D wade will eventually play for the Bulls He fits there but not for a couple of years that happens

  • ththhr

    I agree I WATCHED HIS GAME PRESEASON HE IS GOING TO BE A GREAT ADDITION FOR THE HEAT I WAS HOPING THEY WOULD PICK HIM
