Miami Heat Sign Josh Harrellson

The Miami Heats announced the addition of forward Josh Harrellson on Monday. Harrellson spent the 2011-12 season with the New York Knicks, where he appeared in 37 games and averaged 4.4 points and 3.9 rebounds per contest.

SB Nation's Hot Hot Hoops likes the addition and believes Harrellson will make the 15-man roster, but his overall impact on the team is a bit of an unknown.

It's likely that Harrellson will make the 15-man roster. The challenge for Harrellson is to become more than Erick Dampier, Ronny Turiaf and other centers who gave taken a carousel ride with Miami. Dampier and Turiaf soaked up minutes during the 82-game grind of the regular season, but hardly played once the postseason started.

Harrellson, who is entering his second NBA season, was originally a second-round selection of the New Orleans Hornets in the 2011 NBA Draft.
