Wednesday March 21st, 2012

Free agent and former Washington Wizards forward Ronny Turiaf is finalizing an agreement with the Miami Heat, according to Adam Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports.

“We’re working hard to get it finished up,” Turiaf’s agent, Mark Bartelstein, told Yahoo! Sports.  The deal will be announced later Wednesday, league sources said.

At the league trade deadline, the Denver Nugget acquired Turiaf from the Washington Wizards as part of a three-team deal.  The Nuggets then bought out his contract and he cleared waivers on Tuesday.
