View Full Version : Heat re-signs Magloire

Reserve Jamaal Magloire has re-signed with the Miami Heat, giving the team four centers under contract.

Restricted free-agent center Joel Anthony re-signed Monday. The Heat also have starter Jermaine O'Neal and seldom-used Mark Blount.

The Heat announced Wednesday they had reached an agreement with Magloire, an unrestricted free agent. He said entering offseason he "absolutely" wanted to stay with the Heat, and teammate Dwyane Wade praised his contribution as an enforcer.

Magloire appeared in 55 games for Miami last season, with 12 starts, and averaged 2.9 points, 4.0 rebounds and 12.9 minutes. The nine-year veteran has career averages of 8.0 points, 6.9 rebounds and 23.2. He was an All-Star in 2004.

He will likely add experience to the team and be around to mentor the younger guys like Micheal Beasley. I am not sure if the Heat needs him for anything else other then that. He may get to play 5-10 minutes a game, that's about it.

He had tons of potential when he was younger and played for the Hornets, but the injuries never made him the same player anymore.

Good for us. He brings toughness that we need and he's a great teammate

Not like he'll get a lot of minutes per game. He was supposed to be like the next great big man when he made the All-Star team earlier this decade. But injuries messed him up. And wtf is up with those "peek-a-boo" dunks?

This will help Wade stay.

He's still alive?

4 centers under contract, and 2 of them are PF (oneil and anthony), Blount is a joke at any position, and Magloire is still the only real center. Not bad for 33ish million next year.
