MIAMI (AP) - Reserve Jamaal Magloire has re-signed with the
Miami Heat, giving the team four centers under contract.
Restricted free-agent center Joel Anthony re-signed Monday. The
Heat also have starter Jermaine O'Neal and seldom-used Mark Blount.
The Heat announced Wednesday they had reached an agreement with
Magloire, an unrestricted free agent. He said entering offseason he
"absolutely" wanted to stay with the Heat, and teammate Dwyane
Wade praised his contribution as an enforcer.
Magloire appeared in 55 games for Miami last season, with 12
starts, and averaged 2.9 points, 4.0 rebounds and 12.9 minutes. The
nine-year veteran has career averages of 8.0 points, 6.9 rebounds
and 23.2. He was an All-Star in 2004.
