Birdman: Still Spreading His Wings in Miami

Shortly after news of Mario Chalmers returning to the Miami Heat surfaced, according to several reports it seems as though teammate Chris Andersen (otherwise known as “Birdman”) is following in his footsteps.

Details beyond Andersen re-signing on a multiyear deal have yet to be released, but the important thing is that it appears as though the gang is back in action.

So far Chris Bosh, Dwyane Wade, Norris Cole, Udonis Haslem, Justin Hamilton, Chalmers and Andersen all have Heat contracts, or are expected to shortly.

LeBron James or not, South Beach is still looking pretty good to me.

In a surprising (at least to me) turn of events, Mario Chalmers has officially announced that he will be returning to the Miami Heat:

Chalmers has been with the Heat since 2008, and expressed major interest in returning again for the 2014-2015 season. However many, including myself, questioned whether or not this would be a good idea given his subpar performance during most of Miami’s postseason. Generally, Chalmers seemed to be missing in action, playing selfishly when he did appear to make more of an impression.

With that said, this season and postseason were the first time Heat Nation expressed disappointment in their point guard, so it is more than possible that next year will be a different, better story. Regardless though, I personally think Norris Cole has proven himself worthy enough to start over Chalmers.

As of now, details on his contract are still rolling in, but sources have confirmed that Chalmers will be signing on for two more years.

This just in: Luol Deng has signed a two-year, $20 million contract with the Miami Heat.

It is no secret that Heat president Pat Riley has had his eye on Deng since the season ended, but many were unsure how much money it would take to persuade him. Obviously though, the money was right, and the Heat have once again made a solid move in revamping their team for 2014-2015.

Dwyane Wade and Udonis Haslem are expected to re-sign with Miami any day now.
