Miami HEAT Weighing Free Agent Options
The Miami HEAT made headlines last week when they signed unrestricted free agent Michael Beasley to a non-guaranteed contract, but the two-time defending champions aren’t done filling out their roster just yet.
Miami has recently expressed interest in a number of free agents including Von Wafer, Julyan Stone, Vander Blue, Yakhouba Diawara, Larry Drew II, Je’Kel Foster and Justin Holiday among others, according to sources close to the situation.
All of these players recently worked out for the HEAT. Miami may bring in several other free agents for additional workouts in the coming days.
Miami’s payroll currently exceeds $80 million so they’re getting creative and leaving no stone unturned to find talent that can fill out the roster.
Miami enters the 2013-14 season with 13 players under guaranteed contracts.
Many of these players have been training at the team’s facility including Beasley, Ray Allen, James Jones, Mario Chalmers and Chris Bosh among others.
It’s possible that a number of the players who recently auditioned for the HEAT could attend training camp with Miami, where they would have the opportunity to make the team’s final roster.
