by September 17, 2012

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.”
