With today's news of Shavlik Randolph signing a partially guaranteed contract with the Miami Heat just coming in, it appears that another member of the Heat's Summer League team will also get an invitation to training camp for a coveted roster spot. WXAA, a Fox affiliate from Albany New York, has the scoop:
Kenny Hasbrouck has always been focused on the NBA. The Siena grad didn't even want to talk about playing overseas until he first gave the NBA everything he had. That effort is now paying off. Tomrorow, Hasbrouck will sign a contract with the Miami Heat, a deal that will put him in training camp with all-stars Lebron James, Dwayne Wade, Chris Bosh. The deal, which could pay Kenny upwards of $200,000, is not guaranteed until December 1st. "I'm grateful for it to finally happen, to finally put my name on the paper where I know I'm going to be secure for at least a couple months. So, it's good." Hasbrouck told FOX23 during his visit back to Siena College today. Hasbrouck was Miami's leading scorer in the Vegas Summer League averaging 13.6 PPG to go with 2.4 RPG and 2.4 APG in 5 games.The Miami Heat have made it official with the following press release: (like Shavlik Randolph, this is a partially-guaranteed contract for a Summer League player.)
