MIAMI - Seeking to add depth to their front line, the Miami Heat on Friday signed veteran forward John Wallace and center Loren Woods.

The 6-10 Wallace returns to the NBA after spending the 2002-03 season in Greece. During the FIBA Champions Cup, he averaged 15.0 points and 3.3 rebounds. Most recently, Wallace played five games for the Minnesota Timberwolves' entry in the summer league in Orlando and averaged 14.2 points and 5.0 rebounds in 25 minutes per game.

A first-round pick of the New York Knicks in 1996, Wallace has also played for Toronto (1997-99), Detroit (2000-01) and Phoenix (2001-02), averaging 8.0 points and 2.9 rebounds while shooting 46 percent from the field.

The 7-1 Woods played sparingly in his first two seasons with the Timberwolves, averaging 1.9 points and 2.2 rebounds in 98 games.
