The Heat signed center Jarvis Varnado on Wednesday to a 10-day contract.
Varnado, originally a second-round pick of the Heat in 2010, most recently played for the Boston Celtics. The Celtics released him last week in advance of the contract-guarantee deadline. Varnado played with the Heat during summer league and was a preseason camp invitee. In college, Varnado set the NCAA record for blocks in a career.
The addition of Varnado brings the Heat's roster to 14 players. There is still room or one more player, possibly NBA veteran Chris Anderson, who worked out for Pat Riley on Tuesday and is in Miami awaiting a contract offer.
