Heat Officially Sign Birdman, Shabazz

The Miami Heat officially sign two more in their quest to stay a championship level club.

Chris "Birdman" Anderson resigned and the Heat also came to terms with their first round pick Shabazz Napier.

Anderson is a 12 year NBA veteran, playing the last two seasons in Miami.  Heat President Pat Riley says in a statement that he has been instrumental to their success.

"Chris Andersen has had two great seasons with us and without him, we would not have been able to win the 2013 NBA Championship,” said HEAT President Pat Riley. “I’m happy he decided to come back and we’re looking forward to a great season from him in the power rotation.”

Napier won two NCAA titles at UCONN and Riley is excited about adding that championship experience to the roster.

“Shabazz is a proven winner and one of the most mature college players that I have ever met,” said HEAT President Pat Riley in a statement. “Not only did he help lead UConn to two NCAA Championships, but he also knows exactly what he needs to do to make an impact at the NBA level. I believe the experience he had during the Summer League is going to payoff in leaps and bounds when training camp begins.”

The team brought Udonis Haslem back yesterday on a reported 2 year deal.
