Bringing in players that will be in their DLeague team. Any player after the 12th man will get no burn on the floor. The good thing is that they will have free front row seats to the games.

Von Wafer and his grittiness would be great for the Heat. Everyone else stated is a waste of a roster spot.

Does it really matter? None of the above mentioned will ever get more than 2-3 mins of play time. Garbage time.

Von Wafer will, he's an offensive spark plug with grit and will steal minutes from Battier/Allen. Kid plays solid D too.

Wafer is good but he barely makes it in the NBA for a reason.

And that reason is his attitude. He's a bit of a head case to say the least. but I assume the Heat think he has matured somewhat since his last two years playing overseas.

1,000's? But I thought there was only room for 15 players on a roster? Oh wait...
