Juwan Howard Close to Joining the Miami Heat

Florida is gaining yet another senior citizen, as Howard shuffles over to the Miami Heat. From the Sun-Sentinel: “Portland Trail Blazers forward Juwan Howard is the latest free agent to push for a seat aboard for the Miami Heat’s 2010-11 ride with Dwyane Wade, LeBron James and Chris Bosh. Howard, who has been finalizing his minimum-scale deal with Heat President Pat Riley, is in the midst of sorting out last details before joining the team. ‘Juwan wants to get a ring and he has great respect for Coach Riley,’ agent David Falk told the Sun Sentinel Tuesday. ‘We’ve talked to the Heat. There’s a mutual interest. That’s all I feel comfortable saying at this point.’ This marks practically 14 years to the date when Howard initially tried to sign with the Heat. But after Howard agreed to a Heat contract on July 15, 1996, the league voided the deal because of the order in which the Heat submitted its contracts in regard to the salary cap.”

    For all the Heat naysayers who say they can’t sign anyone with the money left/ This is what’s going to happen. All the vets on the tail end of their careers will flood South Beach to contribute for a minimal amount and a chance for a ring. That roster will fill in no time.
