Rafer Alston Lands in Miami

One person that’s particularly pleased with the signing, is Dwyane Wade: “In the wake of Wednesday’s staggering overtime loss to the Boston Celtics, when the Miami Heat was unable to maintain a two-point lead with six-tenths of a second remaining in regulation, Dwyane Wade embraces the return of his former teammate. ‘He’s a general on the floor,’ Wade said, as the Heat turned its attention to Friday night’s game against the Phoenix Suns. ‘He helps to lead his team.’ Alston cleared waivers Thursday, agreeing to a one-year, minimum-scale contract to return to the team he helped spark to the 2003-04 playoffs during Wade’s rookie season.”
