Juwan Howard has been promoted from player development coach to assistant coach with the Miami Heat.
The Heat demoted assistant coaches Ron Rothstein and Bob McAdoo to make room for Howard on the bench. Juwan was part of Miami's 2012 championship team, and was the only member of the Fab Five to win a championship (although he was more of a locker room presence than a contributor to the stat sheet when they won). Howard had a long and successful NBA career, and now he will embark on the path of coaching. Mon, Sep 1, 2014 11:18:00 AM

Juwan Howard will be an assistant coach for the Heat this season.

He has 19 years of experience in the NBA, which will obviously help him instruct the younger players in the league. Howard finished last season with the Heat, playing in just 51 minutes over the entire season. He had a nice career and it would appear the University of Michigan's Fab Five run in the NBA is over.

As expected, the Heat signed Juwan Howard for the rest of the season on Friday.

Howard has had a good career but right now he's in the discussion for least valuable fantasy player that's not injured (if you're into that sort of thing).

Heat re-sign Juwan Howard to a second 10-day contract.

Howard hasn't played a single second since being brought back initially and is effectively another assistant coach on the bench.

Juwan Howard is expected to be signed to a second 10-day contract on Monday.

It would be a surprise if Howard isn't kept around for the duration of the season after his second 10-day contract runs out.

Heat sign F/C Juwan Howard.

Howard is 40 years of age and players like Anthony Davis weren't even born when the Fab Five was bringing their revolutionary style to college hoops at the University of Michigan. Howard will take the empty roster spot resulting from the Dexter Pittman trade and there's a good chance he'll be retained for the season. He played just 6.8 minutes per game last year and we're expecting a similar allotment for the aged veteran.

The Heat are giving strong consideration to signing Juwan Howard, league sources told Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports.

Howard, 40, spent the past two seasons with the Heat but went unsigned this year. Yahoo! reports he's been working out and staying in shape and it's possible could sign him to fill the roster spot vacated by the Dexter Pittman trade. While Howard could provide a veteran presence on Miami's bench, he won't do anything for you in any fantasy league.

The Heat remain "open" to bringing back Juwan Howard, but he won't start training camp on the roster.

It's going to take an injury or two for Howard to realistically have a chance at making the Heat roster again this season, and the veteran has drawn no interest from other clubs during the offseason.

Juwan Howard is "hoping" to sign a one-year contract with the Heat.

Howard has been working out with the team, and if Miami does decide to bring him back, it's really difficult to justify the club giving him anything but a training camp invite.
Wed, Sep 26, 2012 09:25:00 AM

The Heat may invite Juwan Howard to training camp with their final roster spot.

Robert Dozier is "expected" to be invited to camp on a non-guaranteed deal, which leaves one preseason roster spot available. The elder statesman appeared in just 28 games for Miami last year and doesn't have a realistic chance to make the team -- retirement is a very real option.

Juwan Howard's tenure with the Heat is likely over.

Beat writer Ira Winderman tweeted that "it would appear" that Howard's tenure is over with the team. We can't say we're surprised.
Tue, Sep 18, 2012 08:42:00 AM

Juwan Howard's future with the Heat remains uncertain, and Dwyane Wade recently suggested that Howard could stay with the team as part of the coaching staff.

Howard has been working out in Miami this summer, but retirement is a very real possibility for the 39-year-old veteran. He boasts career averages of 13.4 points, 6.2 rebounds and 2.2 assists, but last year he averaged just 1.5 points in 28 appearances.

The South Florida Sun-Sentinel believes that the Heat "could fill out their power rotation" with Juwan Howard.

Howard finally got his championship ring last season, but he was still on the fence in July as to whether or not he was going to retire. Bringing him back seems like a lukewarm idea given there are more talented (and younger) options available, but Howard does have a familiarity with the team. For what it's worth, the report also suggests that Mickell Gladness, Terrel Harris and Jarvis Varnado could all be considered for a roster spot as well.

Juwan Howard hasn't decided whether he'll retire this summer.

"I still have the itch," said Howard, who is 39 years old. If he doesn't retire he would prefer to stay with the Heat for the veteran's minimum, but there are no guarantees that they'd want to use a roster spot on him.

Juwan Howard confronted Pacers guard Lance Stephenson about his recent 'choke' gesture, and the two needed to be separated before Game 4 on Sunday.

Stephenson already apologized for the gesture, and it seems very silly for a veteran like Howard to be turning this into a melodrama. Neither guy is playing in the series, and LeBron refused to even address Stephenson to the media, so hopefully this will be the last we hear about it.
