HoopsHype Shawn Jones rumors
Facing a 5 p.m. Monday deadline to reduce their roster to a maximum of 15 players, the Miami Heat on Thursday released rookie guards Tyler Johnson and Larry Drew and Hialeah-born forward Shawn Jones. The moves leave the Heat with 16 players on their preseason roster. Of the players released Thursday, Johnson was the most intriguing. Johnson, who went undrafted out of Fresno State in June, impressed the Heat with his athletic play during summer league to the degree that they offered him a $75,000 guarantee to attend training camp.
