The Miami Heat held a team meeting over the weekend to address their poor rebounding, and now they’re hoping a free agent can help their problems.
According to Yahoo! Sports’ Adrian Wojnarowski, the Heat brought in Chris “Birdman” Andersen Monday for a physical and plan to work him out over the next few days.
The Heat have two open roster spots after releasing Josh Harrelson on Monday.
Miami was outrebounded by the Chicago Bulls 48-28 on Friday. They’re being outrebounded by 2.8 per game, and they’re allowing the second-most (15.5) second chances in the league.
Birdman’s specialty is rebounding and blocking shots, as well as energizing the crowd. He played in 32 games last season for the Denver Nuggets and was waived in July. He has averaged 10.5 rebounds and 3.2 blocks per 36 minutes during his career, and he could provide the Heat with what they’re looking for on the interior. It would be pretty awesome if the Heat added his personality to their mix of characters.
