Heat Release Justin Hamilton, Eric Griffin

SUNDAY, 11:49am: The Heat have officially announced the moves on their website.

SATURDAY, 5:13pm: Miami has also waived Justin Hamilton, according to Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel (Twitter link). The subtraction leaves the Heat with 15 players, and it appears Michael Beasley and Roger Mason, the team’s only other players on non-guaranteed deals, have made the opening-night roster.

9:08am: The Heat have released forward Eric Griffin, a league source tells Shams Charania of RealGM (via Twitter).  Griffin was in summer league and preseason with Miami this year and was said to have impressed.

Miami probably would have liked to keep Griffin, but the club is facing a serious roster crunch with Greg Oden and Michael Beasley filling the final spots on the roster.  Releasing Griffin brings the club down to 16 players and Justin Hamilton will probably be the next to go.

The 23-year-old went undrafted out of Campbell in 2012, after averaging 15.7 PPG and 8.6 RPG in his senior year in college.  The 6’8″ forward spent last season in Italy, averaging 17.5 PPG and 7.1 RPG in 28 contests for Fileni BPA Jesi, before earning a spot on the Heat’s Summer League team last month.

  1. Z....

    Heat say he was easily the most athletic player in camp, which is REALLY saying something. I know they were really high on him. Hopefully nobody take him out of the D-League, but thats highly unlikely. Teams probably wont pass on him after some of the things he did since the summer. One thing I saw him do was jump over Brook Lopez like it was easy
