Juwan Howard's second 10-day contract with the Heat expired last night, and rather than letting him go, the team has re-signed him for the remainder of the season, according to a press release. Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reported when Howard first signed that he would likely stick with the Heat for the season.
Howard, 40, has not appeared in a single game during his first 20 days with the team. As I noted when he signed his second 10-day deal, he has a spot on the roster more for his off-court leadership than what he can provide on the court.
With Howard under contract for the season, the Heat now have 15 players on fully guaranteed deals, so if the team wanted to add anyone, a corresponding roster move would be required to open up a spot.
