MIAMI (CBSMiami) – While he’s yet to make any meaningful contribution on the court, the Miami Heat have seen enough of Chris Andersen to sign him to a second 10-day contract.

Anderson was originally signed to a 10-day contract by the Heat on January 20. Since then, he’s appeared in one game and scored two points and pulled down two rebounds. The 6’10” power forward/center was brought in to help the Heat with rebounding.

The veteran center averages 5.4 points and 5.2 rebounds for his career. But, the Heat will have to make a decision on whether to keep Andersen long-term in a few days because players can only sign two 10-day contracts per season.

That’s why the Heat also guaranteed the contract of forward Jarvis Varnado through the rest of the regular season. Varnado had signed two 10-day contracts and the Heat decided to keep him around for the rest of the year.

Varnado could be sent down to the Heat’s NBA Developmental League team to give him some more playing time in the near-term.
