The club signs another point guard in preparation for training camp....

The Miami Heat have officially signed point guard Larry Drew II to their team. The HEAT did not provide details on the contract, thought it's a safe bet it is essentially a training camp invitation with no guaranteed money. Drew becomes the 18th player currently on the roster. He was not healthy enough to participate in the Summer League with the Heat this year.

From the official HEAT press release:

Drew, who played one season at UCLA after transferring from the University of North Carolina, appeared in 35 games (all starts) for the Bruins as a senior and averaged 7.5 points, 7.3 assists, 2.4 rebounds, 1.40 steals and 35.5 minutes while shooting 44.6 percent from the field and 43.3 percent from three-point range. He dished out 256 assists, the most during a single-season in school history and the third-most during a single-season in Pac-12 history. He also played 1,243 minutes that season, the fourth-highest mark for a single-season in school history. Drew was named to the All-Pac-12 First Team and was selected to the Pac-12 All-Tournament Team. He led the conference in total assists, assists per game and assist-per-turnover average (2.98).

In his three seasons at UNC, he finished with 378 assists, the 17th-most in school history. He earned the Tar Heel's Defensive Player of the Game award four times during his junior season and appeared in 38 games as a freshman during the school's 2009 championship season.
