Heat reportedly meet with free agent center Ryan Hollins

Tuesday September 9th, 2014

Free agent center Ryan Hollins met with the Heat on Friday and also has generated interest from the Spurs, Bulls and Kings, according to a tweet from Marc J. Spears of Yahoo! Sports. 

The 29-year-old seven footer has been on rosters for the Bobcats -- now the Hornets -- Timberwolves, Mavericks, Cavaliers, Celtics and Clippers. For a career, he's averaging just 3.8 points and 2.2 rebounds per game. 

It's not immediately clear whether the Heat will sign him to what would likely be a veterans minimum deal. With true seven footers seen as more or less a luxury in today's game, the Spurs and Bulls are also likely looking at him as depth or insurance for their frontcourts come the postseason.
