Miami Heat: Shawn Williams, Reggie Williams Get Numbers

The newly added Williams Brothers (not really brothers) have received their respective jersey numbers, according to the South Florida Sun-Sentinel’s Ira Winderman.

Shawne gets Michael Beasley’s vacated No. 8. The last player to wear No. 55 was Josh Harrellson during the 2012-13 season.

Other Heat players to wear No. 55 include Eddie House (10-11), Billy Thompson (88-91) and, of course, Jason Williams (05-08).

Heat players to wear No. 8 include Carlos Arroyo (09-11), center Isaac Austin (96-98), forward Tang Hamilton in 2001, Shaun Livingston (08-09), Jamario Moon in 2009 and, of course, Antoine Walker (05-07).

Reggie has worn No. 55 at every stop except his brief stint with the Oklahoma City Thunder last season. This will be the first time Shawne will wear No. 8 (has worn Nos. 3, 4 and 7 in the past).
