Yahoo! Sports' Marc Spears tweeted Tuesday that the Miami Heat and free agent guard Garrett Temple have agreed in principle of a contract. Temple will compete for one of Miami's two remaining roster spots with Terrel Harris, Jarvis Varnado and Mickell Gladness in training camp.

After playing for four seasons at Louisiana State University, Temple has bounced around the NBA. The 6-foot-6 swingman has played for the Houston Rockets, Sacramento Kings, San Antonio Spurs, Milwaukee Bucks and Charlotte Bobcats since his professional debut in 2009.

Miami's signings of Temple and Harris may signal that Pat Riley is looking for help on the wings. Although the Heat are also looking for big men, perhaps Riley knows that Shane Battier, Mike Miller and Ray Allen are all well past their primes. It makes sense to have some young legs to back up Dwyane Wade and LeBron James. With only two spots left on the roster, Miami may add one big man and another wing player before the regular season begins Oct. 30.
