Today the Heat added what should be the final piece to their front line, signing Juwan Howard for the $1.4 million veterans minimum.  He will be another veterans voice in the locker room, playing behind Chris Bosh and Udonis Haslem.  He can also play center if needed, adding to that versatility we've been talking about lately. 

At 37, he is coming off of a very productive season in Portland after injuries caused a serious shakeup in their power rotation.  Hopefully he wont be thrust into a similar situation this season, but its nice to have that security.
