Miami Heat News: Heat Sign Larry Drew II

The Miami Heat front office have decided to add point guard Larry Drew II, son of Cleveland Cavaliers assistant coach Larry Drew, Sr. Drew appeared in 11 games with the Heat during the Orlando and Vegas Summer Leagues where he averaged 4.4 points, 3.6 assists, and 1.6 steals while shooting 50 percent from the three-point line.
Drew also spent considerable time in the D-League last season as he helped guide the Sioux Falls Skyforce to the playoffs. He appeared in 41 regular season games, including 36 starts, and averaged 11.4 points and 7.0 assists while shooting 47.4 percent from the field.
Since NBA teams are allowed to designate four players released from their training camp for direct assignment to their D-League affiliates, it is expected that Drew will be waived and added to the Heat’s D-League affiliate, the Sioux Falls Skyforce.
Drew is not expected to be in uniform for the Heat’s final two preseason matchups beginning with the Houston Rockets on Tuesday night.

NBA Rumors: Ray Allen To Sign With The Cleveland Cavaliers

Ray Allen is taking his talents to the Cleveland Cavaliers.
After a dizzying offseason that saw LeBron James leave South Beach to return to his home state of Ohio, it looks like the Cavaliers have lured away another former Heat player—this time it’s the NBA’s greatest three-point shooter of all time, Allen.
According to Glenn Moore of FanSided, the Allen-to-Cleveland signing is a done deal. Moore stated the following on Twitter early Tuesday afternoon:
Earlier reports of Ray Allen signing with Cavaliers are true. Done deal. #NBA

The rumored acquisition of the 39-year-old shooting guard would be the final piece of the puzzle for the championship-hopeful Cavaliers. This follows an offseason in which Cleveland signed former Heat players such as James Jones, Mike Miller and Shawn Marion to shape a rotation that will aid in LeBron’s quest to lead the Cavaliers to their first NBA Championship. Jones and Miller won two championships with the H…

LA Lakers sign Ellington and Price

The Los Angeles Lakers have been an active franchise in the past couple of days, signing shooting guard Wayne Ellington, and veteran point guard Ronnie Price.
Both players simply add some depth to both guard positions. Steve Nash has reportedly looked good in scrimmages, but he is 40. They have Jordan Clarkson, a second round pick from the latest NBA Draft, who may well end up being more a shooting guard anyway. LA also of course acquired Jeremy Lin, the only reliable backup, making the Price signing a necessity.
This will be Ronnie Price’s 6th NBA roster, going undrafted in 2005.
