Not a shocking move here.
The Miami Heat announce that Juwan Howard aka Fab Five, will remain with the team for the remainder of the season. I think this is a good move for the team that is already solid w/ veteran leadership. It can never hurt to have more around.
Howard secured his first ever NBA championship last year with the Miami Heat. He was released after the season, but reportedly he was one of the first players to come back and continue to work out at the team facilities during the off season.
Many of you may remember last seeing Juwan here.
