Consider this a formality, the Miami Heat have signed Keith Benson to a contract. As is, the Heat already had 15 players under contract, and the addition of Benson seems to likely just be for training camp.
Benson is likely signing a one-year deal that is not guaranteed unless on the roster by opening night.
Free agent center Keith Benson has agreed to a training camp deal with the Miami Heat, league source tells RealGM. He was 48th pick in 2011.— Shams Charania (@ShamsCharania) August 14, 2015
Benson has played in 3 NBA games, all with the Warriors, and he played in the Orlando Summer League this year. He's played overseas the last two seasons. Benson is a 27 year old, 6'11 forward or center. But even overseas, Benson hasn't been much of a standout.
But who knows, if the Heat makes some moves, maybe Benson has a chance to take a spot with not much salary room.
