After adding Mickell Gladness and Jarvis Varnado, the Miami Heat have now re-signed guard Terrell Harris bringing their roster to 16 heading into camp. The terms of the contract have not been disclosed but Harris will be the 3rd out of 16 players entering Miami Heat training camp without a guaranteed contract.

Teams are allowed to have a maximum of 20 players on their roster heading into training camp but must cut it down to 15 by the start of the regular season. The Miami Heat will have until October 30th, when they host the Boston Celtics, to decide who will comprise their roster for the 2012-2013 season.

Harris appeared in 22 games last season with the Heat, averaging 3.6 points, 2.3 rebounds, 1.2 assists and 14.5 minutes. Despite limited minutes, Harris showed all around potential in a 116-109 triple overtime win against the Atlanta Hawks, where he tallied 9 points, 4 assists and a career-high 14 rebounds.

Harris became just the third rookie in Miami Heat history to grab at least 14 rebounds off the Miami bench and paired with Udonis Haslem to become only the fifth pair of non-starting teammates to each grab double figure rebounds in the same game.

Harris was originally signed by the Heat as a free agent in December of 2011 and appeared in four postseason games last season during Miami’s championship run totaling five points and three rebounds in 10 minutes of action.

Prior to joining Miami last year, Harris split the season between the Rio Grand Valley Vipers of the NBA Development League and EnBW Ludwigsburg of the German Bundesliga League. He appeared in seven games for the Vipers and averaged 17.0 points, 6.0 rebounds, 4.7 assists, 2.14 steals and 25.0 minutes while shooting 56.6 percent from the field, 42.9 percent from three-point range and 75 percent from the foul line.

The Sun Sentinel is reporting that the Heat have also agreed to terms with former 2nd round draft pick Robert Dozier, with that signing pending.
