Heat Ink James Jones, Mario Chalmers

The official numbers haven't been released, but the Heat have come to terms with James Jones. The expected figures? 5 years, $22 million.

While that seems like a fairly hefty investment, I'm a big fan of this move. The Heat desperately need a better 3-point game, and that's exactly what Jones gives you. Much like Kapono two years ago, expect Jones to be the recipient of several Wade dish-outs. If he can knock 40% of them down, he's an excellent acquisition.

The Heat have also signed Mario Chalmers. Chalmers has been sensational in the summer league. In fact, he's now the favorite to start at PG. I've been in love with his game since his Kansas days...great draft choice, great move.

Things are looking up at the triple-A.
