Not a terrible idea, no. And in regards to Josh, I meant that eventually, he should get the starting nod if he replaces those question marks with good assurances. Again, Joel is a nice energy player that's better suited for a bench role. I'd rather start a healthy and productive Harrellson because you aren't losing alot defensively, and he isn't really someone you can necessarily cheat off of if you're an opposing defense. He's a better rebounder too. But that's just me.....

well, herrellson got a week tryout.
so 4 more days and i guess we will find out.
he's not a bad option at all.. he shoot 3's and is pretty good at rebounding.
his 36 is over 9 rebounds per game.. thats pretty intense.
if we do sign him, i wouldnt mind it at all.
LETS GO HEAT
and is per 36, is 9.6 rebounds.. thats crazy lol
considering camby's was 10.6, and people kept praising him.
i say not bad. and i was reading a knicks writer's description of harrellson, brb lemme see if i can find it..
lol.. so not bad.
LETS GO HEAT
Don't let Knicks fans fool you. This guy is just average defensively, and he is undersized and slow footed defending the pick and roll, and he also plays below the rim because he has very little lift.
He's like a poor mans version of Chuck Hayes except 2 inches taller. He plays the same mold on offense and defense, but the truth is Hayes is a waaaay better post defender, and to boot is stronger than Harrellson.

It's almost here boys.
Yes, it's almost here!!!!!!!
Going for that repeat!
I think the Heat should sign Sean Williams. He is an athletic BIG that can keep up with D-Wade and Lebron and this will free up Bosh to play the 4 most of the time. He has decent hands, long arms for blocking and like I said before he is athletic. No plays need to be run for him, he’ll get his point off rebounds and just dumb luck. I don’t know what his work ethic is like, which may be the reason why he is not on any team.
Wow I just realized over half of our team can hit the three… (this might get us in trouble), also we have a log jam, we need to do a trade… (Jones and Pitman for picks maybe?)
And when the game is on the line this will be our line up,
This is what our Bench is gonna look like when we blow-out every other team...
Heat are really grinding Harrelson out. At this rate, his tryout would continue until he entered the 2013 free agency!
It's good to be Champions!!
http://www.sun-sentinel.com/sports/m...,7091504.storyThe Miami Heat now have 15 players under contract, with Friday's announcement of the signings of center Mickell Gladness and forward Jarvis Varnado.
Gladness spent the start of last season with the Heat before finishing the season with the Golden State Warriors. Varnado, selected by the Heat with the No. 41 pick in the 2010 NBA Draft out of Mississippi State, has bounced between Italy and Israel the past two seasons.
Gladness and Varnado both were with the Heat's summer-league team in Las Vegas in July, each limited by injury.
While NBA teams are limited to 15 players for the regular season, teams may carry up to 20 during training camp, which opens Sept. 29 for the Heat at AmericanAirlines Arena.
Because Varnado has now signed with the Heat, the Heat no longer would retain his rights should he be cut. Varnado had bypassed Heat contracts the previous two offseasons in favor of time overseas.
Gladness and Varnado were added on non-guaranteed contracts.
The Heat soon are expected to offer a similar non-guaranteed deal to guard Terrel Harris, which would bring the camp roster to 16. Harris spent all of last season with the Heat as an undrafted rookie, moving on to a strong showing with the Heat's summer-league team.
With the signings of Gladness and Varnado, it reduces the chances of the Heat bringing back veteran power forward Juwan Howard.
The Heat also are in the midst of tryout with former New York Knicks center Josh Harrellson and former New Orleans Hornets guard Jerome Dyson.
Beyond that, the Heat soon are expected to sign forward Robert Dozier to a non-guaranteed contract. Dozier, selected at No. 60 by the Heat out of Memphis in the second round of the 2009 NBA Draft, has spent the past two seasons in Greece and France. He, too, participated with the Heat's summer-league team.
Varnardo can easily become our ibaka!

Heat have 15 players under contract but can carry 20 guys through training camp. Andersen, Harrellson and others still in mix.
You mad Bill?!
Let's Go HEAT!!!
I dont like bringing all of our oversea guys in for the same camp... especially when there isn't even really an open roster spot... seems like we are throwing away rights to guys like dozier and varnado...
