Carlos Arroyo confirms return to Heat

Carlos Arroyo is going to be playing for the Heat again, adding depth and smart-playing stability to the point guard position.  He is flying back from his native Puerto Rico and expects to formally sign a new contract sometime on Thursday.  Said Arroyo of his return:

"Looking forward to a championship!!!  Excited!!!!"

Arroyo will be the 2nd point guard and 13th player on the Heat's 2010-11 roster, but Miami is expected to add another guard before training camp.  Summer League guys Kenny Hasbrouck and Patrick Beverly are possibilities for the job, as is former Heat PG Jason Williams. At this point, regardless of who else comes aboard...Mario Chalmers is the favorite to start.
