The Miami Heat signed 2012 second-round draft pick Justin Hamilton to a contract, Hamilton wrote on his verified Twitter account on Monday.

Hamilton is a 7-foot center from LSU drafted by the Heat with the 45th overall pick in 2012. The 23-year-old flashed shooting range while averaging 12.9 points and 7.9 rebounds a game for the Tigers in 2011-12. Hamilton played last season in both Latvia and Croatia, but he missed playing in summer league with the Heat because of a hamstring injury.

The Heat have only 13 guaranteed contracts currently on the their roster, with big man Jarvis Varnado and now Hamilton on non-fully guaranteed deals. The Heat re-signed center Chris Andersen and added center Greg Oden already this summer.
