Miami, FL (Sports Network) - The Miami Heat remained busy this offseason with the signing of free agent guard Wesley Person. As per club policy, terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Person joins Shaquille O'Neal, Michael Doleac, Keyon Dooling and Damon Jones on the new-look 2004-05 Heat, who will aim to improve upon last season's Eastern Conference semifinal appearance.

Miami is scheduled to introduce Person at a Wednesday afternoon press conference.

The 33-year-old Person is coming off the least productive of his 10 NBA seasons, averaging 5.8 points in 58 appearances for the Memphis Grizzlies, Portland Trail Blazers and Atlanta Hawks.

The 6-foot-6, 198-pound Person has also spent time with the Phoenix Suns and Cleveland Cavaliers after his career at Auburn University. In 692 games, he owns per-game averages of 11.4 points, 3.4 rebounds and 1.7 assists. Person has also connected on .416 percent of his career attempts from beyond the arc.
