- Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said that Eddy Curry's contract was never in jeopardy in advance of tonight's deadline, tweets Ira Winderman of the Sun Sentinel. Miami waived Mickell Gladness but opted to hold on to Curry and Terrel Harris. Spoelstra stopped short of saying that Gladness could be brought back on a 10-day contract, Winderman tweets.
- More from Winderman, as Spoelstra indicated that the club isn't in a rush to fill its newly vacant roster spot. This could mean that Joel Przybilla, who is said to have offers from the Bulls and Heat, could be on the backburner.
- Juwan Howard turned 39 today and said that he wouldn't mind one day having the title of the NBA's oldest player, tweets Chris Tomasson of FOX Sports Florida. Howard is the third-oldest active player in the Association behind Kurt Thomas and Grant Hill.
