Miami won the NBA Championship last season, but with all the moves made by other teams in the league this summer, the Heat are looking to add some size to their front-court and the latest rumors have the team looking at a former NY Knicks youngster for some help.
Ben Golliver has reported that Miami is going to have a second look at Josh Harrellson. The 23-year-old averaged just over 4 points and four rebounds as a rookie for the NY Knicks, but after a trade to Houston, he was released this summer and is now looking for a new team.
Miami lacks size in the front-court, especially at center and the front office has tried all summer to add a big man. The Heat have very little room under the salary cap and need to find a decent player at a low-cost, making Harrellson a good option this late in the summer.
The Sun-Sentinel has reported that the tryout will last a full week as the youngster will work with a few Heat players and then the front office will decide on a contract, but with the changes made by the LA Lakers and Boston Celtics this summer, adding some size is a priority and Harrellson could earn himself a contract for the upcoming NBA season.
