Keith Benson RumorsAll NBA Players
The Miami Heat’s pending agreement with journeyman center Keith Benson apparently has more to do with the team’s D-League planning than bolstering the power rotation of the 2015-16 roster, according to a source familiar with the situation. Pending completion of a physical this week, Benson is expected to be signed to a non-guaranteed contract for training camp, an agreement that would then allow the Heat to include Benson among players who could be directly assigned to their NBA Development League affiliate if cut during training camp.
Oden will be part of the Mavericks’ free-agent mini-camp that includes wings and several big men, such as Keith Benson. The 7-foot Oden had worked out for the Memphis Grizzlies in the spring, and the franchise is expected to continue to monitor him.
