The Miami Heat currently have 15 players under contract and 13 of them have full salary protection for 2013-14, while Eric Griffin and Jarvis Varnado have none. Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel was asked why the Heat won't carry a full 15-man roster heading into the regular season and he had a very good explanation.
