The Heat waived Shannon Brown, who started two games, to make room on the roster. Whiteside, who spent one season collegiately at Marshall, also played in Lebanon and China last year. “We feel the upside of a 7-footer, shot-blocker, rebounder, young player was something that was too big to pass up right now,” Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said. “We view him as a developmental player even though he’s played professionally for three years, we still see him as a young prospect.”
The Miami HEAT announced today that they have signed center Hassan Whiteside and waived guard Shannon Brown. Per club policy, terms of the deal were not disclosed. Whiteside has appeared in three games for the Iowa Energy in the NBA Development League this season averaging 22.0 points, 15.7 rebounds, 5.33 blocks and 28.7 minutes while shooting 85.7 percent from the field, helping them to a perfect 3-0 record. He has appeared in 19 career NBA games averaging 1.5 points and 2.1 rebounds in 5.8 minutes of action while shooting 44.4 percent from the field. Additionally, he has appeared in 64 career NBA Development League games (14 starts) and averaged 7.0 points, 5.4 rebounds, 2.30 blocks and 13.5 minutes while shooting 57.9 percent from the field.
“I’ve always liked Shannon because he’s athletic, strong, defensive,” Riley said at Saturday’s exhibition in Louisville against the New Orleans Pelicans, before coach Erik Spoelstra gave his team Sunday off. “We’re trying to create a certain mentality here. We went back and looked at his two years at Phoenix, when we averaged up the figures. And that’s a little bit how Coach wants to play, run. And he’s had I think a great training camp.” Then there’s Williams, a journeyman who had to reinvent himself to create equity with Riley and Spoelstra. “Shawne, to be very honest with you, is a guy that we felt, if he could change the way that he was physically, which he has, that we liked,” Riley said. “The transformation of his body, physically, in the last eight weeks has been incredible. He was like 227 [pounds] and 15 percent body fat. And then we went to 241 and under 10 percent body fat. So he committed himself to really being a player.”

New York Knickerbockers President and General Manager Steve Mills announced today that the team has signed guard Shannon Brown and forward Earl Clark each to second 10-day contracts. Brown, 6-4, 210-pounds, is averaging 1.4 points and 1.0 rebounds over 8.3 minutes in seven games with New York. Clark, 6-10, 234-pounds, is averaging 2.2 points and 1.5 rebounds over 6.6 minutes in six games with New York.
The Knicks will extend second 10-day contracts to Earl Clark and Shannon Brown Monday. They were signed after the Knicks bought out the contracts of Beno Udrih and Metta World Peace after the trade deadline.
Carmelo Anthony said the front office ran by him the names of perimeter defender Earl Clark, who went to high school in Rahway, N.J., and combo guard Shannon Brown, who had six points in his debut Thursday. “The names were mentioned,’’ Anthony said. “I’m happy we got them, especially with the lack of bodies we have.”Earl Clark comes ready to play, not a high-maintenance guy. Shannon Brown is proven in this league about what he’s capable of. I’m glad we got two extra bodies that will try to help us get over this hump.’’

Adrian Wojnarowski: Spurs monitoring buyout market before choice on re-signing Shannon Brown, sources tell Y! Brown wants to stay but interest exists elsewhere.
The San Antonio Spurs today announced that they have signed guard Shannon Brown to a second 10-day contract. In his first stint with the Silver and Black Brown saw action in six games, averaging 2.2 points and 1.2 rebounds in 6.3 minutes. The eight-year NBA veteran has also played for the Phoenix Suns (2011-13), L.A. Lakers (2009-11), Charlotte (2008-09), Chicago (2007-08) and Cleveland (2006-08).
With Manu Ginobili and Kawhi Leonard out until at least after the All-Star break, Brown might have a shot. “All I can do is go out and give my best, do what the guys ask me to,” Brown said. “Let the chips fall where they may. I’m going to play hard no matter what. “That’s one thing they aren’t going to be able to say about me, that I didn’t battle.”
Brown, a 6-foot-4 guard, signed his deal with the injury-riddled Spurs on Feb. 1. He is guaranteed only two more games in silver and black — Saturday at Charlotte and Monday in Detroit — before it expires. It’s a tough spot to be in for a veteran of seven NBA seasons. “All I can do is what I can do in that day,” Brown said. “If I’m not putting forth effort, I’d feel bad. But I am putting forth the effort, so it makes it easier.”
Adrian Wojnarowski: Free agent Shannon Brown continues to talk with NBA teams, but has become increasingly engaged with China offers, league sources tell Yahoo.
A possible candidate currently available is former Los Angeles Lakers guard Shannon Brown, a free agent who played for Clippers associate head coach Alvin Gentry while they were with the Phoenix Suns. DeAndre Jordan, who suffered a strained right arch in the fourth quarter of Saturday’s game, didn’t return. But Jordan and Rivers didn’t think it would prevent him from playing next week. “I was going to put D.J. back in, but the way he walked to the table I don’t know,” Rivers said. “He was limping so I thought that wouldn’t be a good idea. I think he’ll be fine in the short run.”
