LinkThe Miami Heat on Saturday requested waivers on seldom-used guard Terrel Harris.
The team had a Monday deadline to decide whether to guarantee Harris' contract for the season.
The Heat face a similar deadline with center Josh Harrellson, the only other player on the roster without a guaranteed contract.
The Heat can now bring Harris back for as many as two 10-day contracts. The 10-day contract period opens Sunday, with Harris eligible to be re-signed as soon as Monday, after he clears the 48-hour waiver period.
The Heat took such an approach last season when they waived center Mickell Gladness at the guarantee deadline and then brought him back on 10-day contracts.
Harris now can be claimed by any team willing to guarantee his minimum-scale contract for the balance of the season.
