Heat passed on trade deadline.
Heat now turn attention to next Thursday's NBA buyout deadline.

There's some names we should focus:
Chris Kaman
Jermaine O'Neal
Marcus Camby
Derek Fisher
Anthony Carter
Rasheed Wallace
Dan Gadzuric
Greg Oden
Francisco Elson

Who should push hard to sign?

Kaman said he's open to re-signing with the Hornets next season. "Yes sir, certainly," he said. New Orleans Times-Picayune
Oh.... He may remain Hornets and No buyout occurs.

Camby won't be bought out. The Rockets coach has always been big on him, plus, they need him for the play offs. They are in contention and need him as a back up big.

Kaman = lol no, Stern would never do that. Plus, NO has his bird rights, so he can get paid big $$$.

Not even, Ainge said that if JO's intentions are to go back to Miami, then he won't be bought out.

it looking ugly unless rasheed come back like he was with the celtics! but from now on im hopping we dont match up with orlando or Lakers on a series because the size will destroy us! and Pat let Mcgee go away when denver got him without getting the guy they where trying to give away Blather or something like that! Let hope Pat been giving Alonzo moruning some Streroid so he could return from retirement!

honestly every team is holding onto these centers for dear life, its really pathetic actually. You think New Orleans will go anywhere w/ kaman? You think eric gordon will stay? You think the celtics can win a series this year w/ JO? they are just keeping these guys so we cant get any better. Really disgusting to me. But what can we do? Pat riley is out of tricks. We signed joel anthiny to a 4 mil dollar deal and he is straight up ****. We're done.

Lol.


Chris Tomasson ‏ @christomasson
Another big man candidate has emerged for Heat in 6-10, 250-pound Ronny Turiaf,, who'll be waived by Denver to make room for Wilson Chandler

Chris Tomasson ‏ @christomasson
Ronny Turiaf has played in just 4 games this year. He had broken hand but was cleared to return Tuesday. Might be best big man Heat can get.

Chris Tomasson ‏ @christomasson
Ronny Turiaf has seven-year averages of 5.2 points and 3.8 rebounds. He has NBA Finals experience with the Lakers in 2008.

Ronny Turiaf might be a great fit here. He is very close to what we need and could be our last hope for a legit center this season. He's a vet with experience and can easy give us 5/6 & 2 blks in just over 20 minutes. IMO he is the most realistic option right now. That rumor seriously made my day despite us being so desperate. Either him, JO or Sheed would be welcomed here with open arms. Hell I'd even take Gadzuric, Fesenko or Elson right now. Even Dampier or Big Z outta retirement! Even Shaq! Even Wilt's corpse outta the grave! You get the point! :D

Chris Kaman and Marcus Camby isn't getting bought out, so lets just forget them.

Rasheed Wallace and Jermaine O'Neal could fill a need of they are fit and ready to play, but are they?

A guy Dan Gadzuric isn't exactly a superstar, but he got some length, size and experience, and you don't need to be a that good to be better then what we have now at C, aside from Joel.

Greg Oden is whole other discussion because he won't be able to help us right now, he would be a project.

Derek Fisher or Anthony Carter would fill in good as a solid third string PG and give us some as us experience and composure at the position. Something that could be valuable to have behind our young, and some times erratic, combo of Rio and Cole. Especially if one gets injured . Don't think Fisher would mind joining HEAT after LA dumped him.

Ronny Turiaf is probably the best big of those available. He doesn't have the height everybody is going on about, but I think we are better of actually getting someone who can play then staring us blind at 7 foot. At 6-10, 250 he still got good size. He is also athletic enough to do the stuff defensively HEAT wants from their bigs, and overall probably the one most fitted for way the HEATs play.

If we end up with something like Fisher and Turiaf I would be happy, and if it ends up being Gadzuric and Carter Im very still ok with it.

Because you wont find starters in the "90% off buyout bin". There are reasons these players aren't on teams rosters. No reason to get our hope up about getting someone that start, or overvalue a player just because we have a need, aka the "Troy Murphy effect".

Turiaf wouldn't be a bad pickup if he is bought out. But hes nowhere near 6'10....more like 6'9 in shoes. Maybe he can do a bit better holding his own in the post than Haslem but other than that doesn't provide much that UD cannot.
