5:48pm: The signing is official, the team’s PR department tweets.
4:45pm: The Heat will sign guard Charles Cooke to a 10-day contract, Shams Charania of The Athletic tweets. Cooke has been playing with their G League affiliate, the Sioux Falls Skyforce.
Miami needed to add another player to fulfill the league requirement of 14 players on the 15-man roster. The Heat have been at 13 players since March 2 and needed to make a move by Saturday.
Cooke, 24, went undrafted out of Dayton. He played 13 games with the Pelicans last season but averaged just 2.9 MPG in those appearances.
In 37 games with the Skyforce, Cooke averaged 14.2 PPG, 4.0 RPG and 2.2 APG in 31.0 MPG.

Cooke adds to that long line of former UD guards that include Sedric Toney, Negele Knight, Brian Roberts, and… well… ummmm…. I guess its not a long line.
RealGM listed 20 ex-Flyers, but not Jordan Sibert, who played 4 minutes lately with ATL with an ORtg of 300! Cmon Hawks another 10-day! A number of ex-Flyers in recent years have come close to sticking but haven’t. Scoochie Smith.
Jim Paxson def stuck with the Blazers & Celts. Johnny Davis was one of the rotating guards the Blazers killed with their in title year. Bill Walton was center. Davis twice had closing shots to beat Walton’s UCLA team in the tourney but UD lost in 3 OTs.
Too bad Roosevelt Chapman was too small lol
He wanted to go where they would leave him at forward. 6-4, did well
