Good cheap signing. Kid is really athletic and I know the Nuggets didn't want to let him go. Lock down defender which the Heat desperately needs. Now the question is, what to do with all the small forwards? James Jones and Diawara are here to stay but I think either Marion or Dorell will be traded in the coming weeks.

Why would they sign Yakhouba when they got Dorrell waiting for a contract. Dorrell is 6-9 long arms that can defend, rebound, very athletic, and shoot mid range jumpers. Not to mention he can block shots every now and then. Doesn't make any sense Yak can't shoot if his life depended on it. DW is a much better player and not to mention DWades best friends. always good to keep your franchise player happy right?

i'm ok with it if he's there to lock
down 2's. Dorell can lock down 3's
and rebound/block as well. Marion will be traded sooner or later so
Dorell and J.Jones can share the 3.
B. Jones is in the mix too, as well
as Beasley experimentally. I don't see what basis anyone has to criticize this move. good role players on the bench are critical.
