MIAMI (AP) -- Former President Bill Clinton has a courtside seat in Miami for Sunday's game between the Heat and the Orlando Magic.

Clinton arrived shortly before tipoff, settling into a spot near midcourt and next to Heat owner Micky Arison. The former president also played golf in Colombia last week at a Nationwide Tour event.

Heat executives Nick Arison and Alonzo Mourning met briefly with Clinton in Haiti last month, discussing ongoing earthquake relief efforts. Clinton and Mourning chatted that day for a few minutes about a number of other topics, including the Heat season to that point and how much the former president enjoyed the retired Heat center's book.
