The Miami Heat intend to sign Jarvis Varando to a 10-day contract, according to sources.
Varnado is scheduled to clear waivers on Tuesday afternoon after being released by the Celtics on Sunday.
Varnado played limited minutes in five games for the Celtics after a call up from Sioux Falls of the Development League.
The Heat also have interest in Chris Andersen.
Miami selected Varnado in the second round of the 2010 NBA Draft.
