Heat bring back another one, resign Jamaal Magloire

61913_pistons_heat_basketball_medium

Pat Riley continues to add depth to the Heat's very intimidating roster.  Today Miami signed their fourth center, locking up Jamaal Magloire for another year.  This is the third time in 3-years that the Heat have signed Magloire to a minimum, single year contract.  He'll make $1.4 million in 2010-11. 

The ‘big cat' now joins Zydrunas Ilgauskas, Joel Anthony and rookie Dexter Pittman as the patrollers of the paint for the upcoming season.  Big Z and Joel are likely to share the bulk of the minutes, with Magloire playing a similar role to what he's already done for Miami in the last two years. 

Jamaal's is just as valuable to the Heat off the court as he is on the court.  It's well known that he has been a locker room leadership guy, setting great examples and working extremely hard despite not getting a ton of playing time during games.  Pat Riley said it best:

"Re-signing Jamaal is a testament to his work ethic and his desire to win.  Over the past two seasons in Miami, he has been an asset to this team, in terms of being a role model for our younger players, with his professionalism and his strong locker room presence."
