Redd may not be to bad a signing for them if the knee is not totally shot even tho he is a bad defender...not sure what they would do with Mcgrady tho...

McGrady, no way!! He was washed up 5 years ago.

Lol... you think the Bucks are stupid? If his knees are any good they'd pay a little bit more to keep him. As for McInjury, Rockets, Knicks and Pistons have all waived him good bye... he aint fooling no one anymore but Pat Riley given he's taking on Eddy Curry as well...

My grandmother is a free agent, hopefully the Heat will be interested in signing her. She promises not to compete with Gloria.

Another useless rumor mill thread. Miami is NOT that stupid.

None of the above addresses Miami's needs. Prince or Battier may not be bad pickups, but Redd and McGrady are wasted roster spots--unless the Heat are looking to fortify the bench, and Grant Hill will qualify for Social Security befdore the end of the season. The Heat need a center and a point guard.

I think McGrady is a willing bench player. He can also provide some minutes at the point. Nit the answer, as you point out, but a nice pickup still.

Lol. Miami nearly added Eddy Curry to their playoff roster. I beg to differ on your stance.

Miami can't afford to bring in a point guard that the three pigs will respect. Don't forget they got Bibby for a huge discount and still couldn't get the job done. Then there's Chalmers - a poor man's Toney Douglas without the defense. Don't get me wrong. I do agree with you on the need for a center and point guard but truth is they can't.They don't have the money. It's like cutting off somebody's hands and telling them to hold on... sorry Miami. Your only hope of improvement is building chemistry.
