Spo says Norris Cole arrived in great shape and passed the conditioning tests with flying colors. Says Chalmers also arrived in top shape.
"Just wait," Chalmers said. "They counted us out before, and they're counting us out again."

ESPN reports point guard Mario Chalmers will re-sign with Miami for 2 years. Money unknown.
As noted at start of FA, Miami never completely closed the door on Chalmers. Now expecting it to fully open for him to return.

It is now looking that for the right price, Mario Chalmers will be invited back to the Heat next season.
Miami has explored the possibility of adding talent via a Mario Chalmers sign-and-trade, per sources. Pat Riley still trying to make moves.
