Heat Waive Harrellson; Work Out ‘Birdman’
Following guard Terrel Harris being waived two days ago, the Miami Heat also released center Josh Harrellson on Monday and now have two open roster spots.
Harrellson averaged 2 points per game and 1.4 rebounds per game while appearing in five games for the Heat this season.
In its exploration to sign another big man, the Miami Heat will work out ex-Denver Nuggets center Chris Andersen, league sources told Yahoo! Sports.
Andersen, famously known as “The Birdman,” arrived in Miami on Monday for a physical and workouts over the next two days with the defending NBA champions, sources said.
Heat president Pat Riley has been scouring the landscape to bolster a foundering frontcourt bench and appears to be intrigued with the possibility of discovering how much Andersen, 34, has left in his game.
