Miami Heat Roster Report 2009-10-02

Miami Heat Roster Report 2009-10-02PLAYER NEWS:

--C Jermaine O'Neal, 30, now says playing on a twice-ripped meniscus two years ago for Indiana was a mistake. He said he feels good and wants to play "four or five" more years. He says he's at 256 pounds and wants to play at 253 -- which is where he was about five seasons ago, when he was at his best.

--With Jermaine O'Neal likely to be given time off during two-a-days to rest his legs, the Heat has added former San Antonio Spurs center Anthony Tolliver and Georgia Tech rookie Alade Aminu to its roster for camp. Tolliver, 6-9, went undrafted out of Creighton in 2007, splitting 2007-08 between the NBA Development League and the German League. He appeared in 19 games last season with San Antonio, averaging 2.7 points. He also had a 10-day contract last season with the New Orleans Hornets, but did not get into a game. Aminu, 6-10, went undrafted last June, after spending four seasons at Georgia Tech, averaging 11.8 points, 8.0 rebounds and 1.8 blocked shots as a senior.

--G Dwyane Wade said he followed the offseason lead of former Heat C Alonzo Mourning, spending $150,000 on chefs, yoga instructors and the like.

"Not everyone is willing to do the work," Wade stressed.

--After missing half of last season following preseason wrist surgery, F James Jones said he will require no protection on his wrist.

"I don't want it. I don't need it. If I wear it, something's not right," he said.


Patrick Beverley, G, 6-1, Ukraine/Arkansas (second round) -- Beverley, taken with the 43rd pick, played professionally in Ukraine last season, leaving Arkansas after his junior year. He's aggressive and can play both guard positions.

Robert Dozier, F, 6-9, Memphis (second round) -- There's a chance he plays in Europe next season. Miami believes he can play small forward although he was a power forward in college.
