The Miami Heat signed center Mickell Gladness and forward Jarvis Varnado on Friday.
Gladness appeared in eight games with the NBA champion Heat last season, scoring two points and grabbing 11 rebounds before becoming a free agent after his second 10-day contract with Miami expired. He finished the season by playing in 18 more games with Golden State, averaging 3.0 points and 2.6 rebounds.
Varnado was a second-round draft pick by Miami in 2010 and has played overseas since. Both Varnado and Gladness were on Miami's summer league roster in July.
Miami's roster stands at 15. The Heat can bring up to 20 players in for training camp, which starts in late September.

The Miami Heat have signed forward Jarvis Varnado and free agent center Mickell Gladness.
Fresh off of an NBA Championship, Dwyane Wade is looking to come back from a knee injury to defend his title. However, one of his off the court moves is a bit of an eyebrow raiser.
He has been a rep for Nike shoes for three years, and has even had the Fly Wade shoes (below) named after him.

Let us take a trip down memory lane. Summer of 2010 LeBron summoned all interested NBA executives and front office personal to come to his central free agency meeting offices in Ohio. The rumor was, LeBron was interested in Miami and teaming up with his buddy’s Chris Bosh and Dwyane Wade. Was it possible LeBron James would snub New York and a chance to be bigger than he already...
Rumor is D. Wade is parting ways with the Jordan Brand. He’ll be signing on with the Chinese brand, Li-Ning in a multimillion dollar deal. An official announcement is expected in the coming days.
The Miami Heat won the NBA title last season often not using a point guard, instead having LeBron James be a point forward.
Where did that come from?
Don Nelson. He popularized the term by using Paul Pressey as a point forward for Milwaukee in the 1980s.
The Heat this season are talking about often playing small ball and being "position-less." Where did that first really...
Only LeBron James would star in a commercial with five different versions of himself, all played by him! I know the LBJ fanatics (mostly 9 year old boys) will say how wonderful this commercial is. Hey! Eddie Murphy did similar things… Eddie Murphy? Come on Nike! One more thing… tell me why LeBron James must [...]
From "Probasketballtalk" Sept , 3, 2012. "No matter what moves Mr. Romney made, the president said, he and his team were going to cut him off and block him at every turn. “We’re the Miami Heat, and he’s Jeremy Lin,” Mr. Obama said, according to the aide." We all know what Obama is saying here. Lin is and will always be a fluke. ROFLMAO
