Harrellson Joins NBA Champs

MIAMI (CBSNewYork) – Josh Harrellson is the latest to join the defending NBA champion Miami Heat.  The Heat announced the deal via their official Twitter account.

It isn’t a guaranteed deal and Harrellson will have to compete for a spot on the Heat roster during training camp.

Harrellson appeared in 37 games for the Knicks during the 2011-12 season, but battled injuries.  The 23-year-old big man averaged 14.6 minutes per game, 4.4 points per game and 3.9 rebounds per game.

He was effective when he was on the court for the Knicks.  Per 36-minute averages, Harrellson averaged 10.8 points per game and 9.6 rebounds per game.

Harrellson was dealt to the Houston Rockets in the deal that brought Marcus Camby to the Knicks in July.  The Rockets waived Harrellson after completing the trade.
