Pat Riley: “Signing Luol Deng is one of the most important free agent signings that we have ever had in the history of the franchise."
When Heat debated using amnesty on Mike Miller, wonder if "signs with LeBron in Cleveland in 2014" was worst-case scenario.
Pat Riley in statement: "Luol Deng is one of the most important free agent signings that we have ever had in the history of the franchise."
Riley calls Deng "one of the most important free agent signings that we have ever had in the history of the franchise." And Josh Harrellson?
Heat make Luol Deng signing official, as expected.
For those asking about Birdman, I don't think Bird's rights apply here. Someone please advice if I'm wrong.
Riley on Deng: "He brings the attitude of a warrior & competes every single night against the very, very best. We are thrilled."
Riley on Deng: “He is a proven All-Star & quintessential team player, both as a scorer, as well as an All-NBA defender."
Heat confirm Luol Deng deal. Riley: "One of the most important free agent signings that we have ever had in the history of the franchise."
Using the "room exception" on Haslem ($2.732 M) means the Heat will not be using any other exceptions.
One move I'd like to see the Heat make this offseason is to change their intro music to pretty much anything else.
Ex-Gator Patric Young is in the arena today watching Bulls-T'wolves. Still looking for a job. Playing summer league for Pelicans.
Sean Marks told me during Finals goal was to get back to Spurs front office so move from assistant a promotion like Askins w/Heat last year.
Cavs also still have a 1st round pick via the Heat from the original LeBron sign-and-trade deal in 2010.
Are the Heat still paying Mike Miller this season while he plays for Cleveland? Anybody know?
Have been informed there is a chance Heat could cobble bid for Boozer, but seems unlikely considering space of others.
Heat will now continue to pay Mike Miller as he plays in Cleveland.
Yahoo! Sports reports Mike Miller to Cleveland. You guys cool with that?
Huge change coming to Miami Beach. MBPD suspending indefinitely it's policy of allowing cops to work off-duty security at night clubs.
Heat's Tim Hardaway laughing it up with Tom Thibodeau courtside at Bulls-T'wolves.
Heat seem to be mixed on Carlos Boozer. Not great fit. Doesn't shoot 3s, but could be off the bench scorer. Let the bids begin.
Heat can only amnesty bid on Boozer if they have cap space, which does not appear to be case. Otherwise, he must clear amnesty waivers.
Yahoo! Sports reports Carlos Boozer will be amnestied. Could be a cheap addition for Miami.

You could go a long way to fixing Miami-Dade's infrastructure with the money that Udonis Haslem has left on the table over his career
"Room" exception used for Haslem starts at $2.75M can be for two years, with 4.5 percent raise.
Udonis Haslem has agreed to return to Miami Heat on their $2.7 million space exception, source tells Sun Sentinel.
Dirk Nowitzki: 3 years, $25M. Kobe Bryant: 2 years, $48.5M. Curious to see whether Mavericks or Lakers get more value.
Can confirm report -- 1st by AP -- that Wade's deal is 1 year plus option. Heat wanted flexibility in 2016. Got it. And he sacrificed again.
Udonis Haslem's Miami Heat return being finalized at the moment.
Was told by party involved that Wade deal is two years with second year a player option. Huge sacrifice for Wade and Heat a player in 2016.
Udonis Haslem is also returning to the Heat, as expected. Details to come soon.
Dwyane Wade called Miami “home” today as he finalized his contract following an emotional week.
Dwyane Wade tweets that he re-signed with Miami. Terms unknown at this point, but ~$60M over 4yrs is an educated guess.
Source tells Sun Sentinel that Dwyane Wade's contract to return is done.
As for those Eric Bledsoe rumors of a Heat meeting, didn't happen (per source), although one did with Deng, who is about to be signed soon.
Hearing that Luol Deng passed his physical, as expected. So that deal should be official soon, as Heat continue playing with numbers.
Because of creativity with Birdman's contract, Heat can still fit Haslem into space, could possibly use $2.7M exception elsewhere.
It also means that if he takes it, he has sacrificed again. Would have made a bit more with 4.6M he was owed plus minimum in 2015-16.
To clarify: renouncing Udonis Haslem doesn't mean he's leaving. It means they want to use 2.7M MLE for him. Can't exceed 2 years.
PAT RILEY: “I didn’t come down here 19 years ago for a quick trip to South Beach and get a suntan. I can guarantee you that.”
It's got to be so cool having your brother as your BP coach in the home-run derby.
THE CONCOURSE TOO? http://t.co/sZBQ2kuU05
Céspedes for the rest of us!
James Ennis unsure how severe his groin injury is. He'll reevaluate tomorrow.
Clippers 91, Heat 85 in Vegas summer league. Ennis limited to 14 min. by groin injury. Hamilton DNP with ankle sprain. Napier 2 of 8 for 8.
FINAL: Clippers 91, Heat 85. Shabazz Napier with 8p. James Ennis leaves with a groin injury.
What do you do here? You do him a favor by telling him, but on the other hand, if you don't tell him he'll go on his way blissfully unaware.
Isaiah Austin is courtside for Heat-Clippers. He is sitting right in the puke residue though.
Hey sexy... I finally got my very own "cradle to the grave dance" It only took 6years
Fan from Miami just hit a halfcourt shot, but it's only worth a $100 gift card?
Tyler Honeycutt just stepped in the puke streaks.
If only we lived in a city where we could watch Stanton every day...
Tough deal for the Heat-- James Ennis out the rest of the game with a strained left groin.
OH DEAR LORD LOTS OF PEOPLE JUST WALKED THROUGH THE PUKE STREAKS. PLEASE SOMEBODY GET SOME PLEDGE WIPES OR SOMETHING.
I lost track of all you guys' LeBron responses. I'll go back and retweet some.
Man, I'm just totally thrown off right now and I'm pretty sure I can smell the puke wafting this way.
Shabazz Napier's first half: 2p on 0/2 FGs,1a, 2s, 2 TO, 3 fouls.
