Heat sign Shavlik Randolph

5 Comments

The Miami Heat continued to fill out their roster on Tuesday when they signed 26-year old forward Shavlik Randolph to a one-year deal for the veteran’s minimum. The deal is not fully guaranteed. The Heat now have 14 players under contract, meaning they have one roster spot left. 

Randolph was once one of the top recruits in the country, but went undrafted after a very disappointing three-year career at Duke. The 76ers signed him as an undrafted free agent, and he was actually a part of their rotation during his rookie season; over half of Randolph’s career games, minutes, points, and assists came in his rookie year. 
Since then, Randolph has played sparingly, having only appeared in 38 games over the last four seasons. He likely won’t see the court much in Miami, but he won’t cause any problems either, and that’s all Miami really wants at this point.

Against the Pacers last night, James Ennis missed all three of his 3-point attempts… that counted. And he makes this one after fouling out?

Mike Conley more than picked up the slack to lead the Grizzlies to victory.

The Pelicans are effectively out of the playoff race, but Dante Cunningham and Anthony Davis are still competing — even if it looks a little silly.

That tone and a big game from DeMarcus Cousins (29 points, 16 rebounds, six assists) led to a 121-118 win over the Mavericks.

Goran Dragic is very good at alley-oops.

Too good.

With a “shot” like that falling, the Heat trounced the Knicks, 105-88.

Since trading for him, the Hawks have gotten Tim Hardaway Jr. to buy in defensively.

After this help defense on 76ers center Richaun Holmes cost him dearly, I wouldn’t blame Hardaway if he gave up on the endeavor entirely.
