Juwan Howard F/C MIA 2 years ago

Juwan Howard will be an assistant coach for the Heat this season.

He has 19 years of experience in the NBA, which will obviously help him instruct the younger players in the league. Howard finished last season with the Heat, playing in just 51 minutes over the entire season. He had a nice career and it would appear the University of Michigan's Fab Five run in the NBA is over.

As expected, the Heat signed Juwan Howard for the rest of the season on Friday.

Howard has had a good career but right now he's in the discussion for least valuable fantasy player that's not injured (if you're into that sort of thing).

Heat re-sign Juwan Howard to a second 10-day contract.

Howard hasn't played a single second since being brought back initially and is effectively another assistant coach on the bench.

Juwan Howard is expected to be signed to a second 10-day contract on Monday.

It would be a surprise if Howard isn't kept around for the duration of the season after his second 10-day contract runs out.

Heat sign F/C Juwan Howard.

Howard is 40 years of age and players like Anthony Davis weren't even born when the Fab Five was bringing their revolutionary style to college hoops at the University of Michigan. Howard will take the empty roster spot resulting from the Dexter Pittman trade and there's a good chance he'll be retained for the season. He played just 6.8 minutes per game last year and we're expecting a similar allotment for the aged veteran.

The Heat are giving strong consideration to signing Juwan Howard, league sources told Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports.

Howard, 40, spent the past two seasons with the Heat but went unsigned this year. Yahoo! reports he's been working out and staying in shape and it's possible could sign him to fill the roster spot vacated by the Dexter Pittman trade. While Howard could provide a veteran presence on Miami's bench, he won't do anything for you in any fantasy league.

The Heat remain "open" to bringing back Juwan Howard, but he won't start training camp on the roster.

It's going to take an injury or two for Howard to realistically have a chance at making the Heat roster again this season, and the veteran has drawn no interest from other clubs during the offseason.

Juwan Howard is "hoping" to sign a one-year contract with the Heat.

Howard has been working out with the team, and if Miami does decide to bring him back, it's really difficult to justify the club giving him anything but a training camp invite.

The Heat may invite Juwan Howard to training camp with their final roster spot.

Robert Dozier is "expected" to be invited to camp on a non-guaranteed deal, which leaves one preseason roster spot available. The elder statesman appeared in just 28 games for Miami last year and doesn't have a realistic chance to make the team -- retirement is a very real option.

Juwan Howard's tenure with the Heat is likely over.

Beat writer Ira Winderman tweeted that "it would appear" that Howard's tenure is over with the team. We can't say we're surprised.
