Miami Sports Flash: Heat look at Erick Dampier

The Miami Heat are giving a look at free agent big man Center Erick Dampier.  The new free agent last played with Memphis and may play a big role in helping add some size to Miami’s star-studded line-up.  He was a Miami foe, playing for Dallas in the Heat’s only NBA Championship.  Adding size is a plus for the heat and should help after adding the likes of LeBron James and Chris Bosh this off-season.
