The Heat's roster is taking shape hours before the start of training camp is set to begin and it's not going to be all that different from last season's team.
Mario Chalmers and James Jones will resign with the team and Juwan Howard is expected to stick around as well. The latest free-agent moves puts the number of players on the Heat's roster at 14, or one shy of the league maximum.
Chalmers announced his move on Twitter and Jones made his deal public later in the morning. Not expected to return from last season are free agents Mike Bibby, Erick Dampier and Jamaal Magloire. Magloire is headed to Toronto and Bibby might join the Knicks. Center Zydrunas Ilgauskas is retiring.
The Heat's new additions to the team are free agents Shane Battier and Eddy Curry.
