Heat Expected To Re-Sign Juwan Howard

Juwan Howard has yet to play a single minute during his first three games back with the Heat, but the team is still planning to re-sign him to a second 10-day contract, according to Chris Tomasson of FOX Sports Florida (via Twitter). Howard's first 10-day deal will expire on Monday night.

The news comes as no surprise, since Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reported at the time of the initial deal that the Heat would likely keep Howard around for the rest of the season. While the veteran big man provides an additional frontcourt body off the bench, he's primarily on the roster for his off-court leadership skills.

Howard is occupying the 15th and final spot on Miami's roster, so as long as the team continues to re-sign him, there won't be room to add anyone else without waiving a player.
