Anderson Heat make roster changes
The Anderson Heat of the World Basketball Association have signed and activated 6'9 Forward from Clayton State B.J. Puckett on Saturday and Puckett competed in his first game action of the season for the Heat making an excellent debut. In the game the Heat fell to the defending 2005 Champion Rome Gladiators but Puckett made his presence on the court well known. Puckett finished with a near triple-double in the encounter with 25 points, 16 boards and 7 assists in just over 34 minutes. Head Coach Embry Malone and the Heat staff will have Puckett playing at the small foward position wanting to highlight his abilities to score inside as well as show off his NBA range. At 6'9 Puckett has what a lot of NBA teams are looking for; someone with the length of the forward position but also the range to stretch the defense.
The team also added 6'6 Forward Charles Sanders from Pikeville College who armed with a 42 inch vertical leap and a very pure shot can himself cause some matchup problems for opposing defenses. To accommodate the additions in the starting rotation 6'5 G/F Jason Steward and 6'8 G/F Patrick Roy Binion have been moved to the two guard position and the 6'2 Antoine Knighton will start at point guard. Rounding out the Heat roster is Kamura Catron 6'9 F/C, 6'9 G/F Terrence Woodyard, 6'10 Center Johnathan Haymon, 6'8 Forward Torquin Gresham and 6'1 Guard Jonathan Small.
