Needing a spark in the frontcourt, the Heat signed veteran forward/center Chris Andersen to a 10-day contract on Sunday. The team also resigned rookie Jarvis Varnado to another 10-day deal.
Andersen, who averaged 5.3 points and 4.6 rebounds in 32 games last season for Denver, replaced Josh Harrellson on the Heat's roster. Harrellson's 10-day contract ended on Saturday. Andersen will likely make his Heat debut on Wednesday against the Raptors.
The addition of Andersen adds size to the Heat's second-unit, which lacked a traditional rebounding presence.
