07:53 AM ET 01.15 | There may, at long last, be an answer in the middle for the Miami Heat. League sources said the Denver Nuggets are looking to deal center Timofey Mozgov, who has been unable to get much playing time on a deep team and has an expiring contract. Mozgov is aware he could be moved by the Feb. 21 trade deadline. "It think it's logical, you can see that, trading me," Mozgov said in an interview with FOX Sports Florida. "I'm in my contract year. So if they can get something for me ... I don't think it would be a surprise for me (to be traded)." Miami is looking for a big man. It remains to be seen if the Heat could come up with an offer to entice the Nuggets for the 7-foot-1 Mozgov, making $2.79 million. The Heat don't have a lot of assets that they would trade.

Of course Miami is interested. They want help at Center so bad they even took Chef Eddy for a season hoping for some help. Any big man with a pulse will get a call from Riley.If they ever find a solid center though watch out. That's really Miami's only soft spot. If they grab a good Center there will be nobody beating this team. Not 1, not 2, not 3....etc.

You are 100% correct. The problem is, the only way they get better at center is to get lucky through the draft or pluck a cheap big man off another roster.

Moving Bosh to Center during the season was a bad idea.

I like Bosh playing there vs certain teams but not all season long. Granted, Miami is going through a slump right now and are still in 1st place but rebounding is only going to get tougher in the playoffs.

Yea the heat can trade their draft pick for Mozgov.

Or the Celtics. KG will slap the crap out of him.

Sure didn't slap during the season opener or the last 2 playoff series for that matter.

The bucks should just waive Sammy D seeing as he's in the doghouse.

They did win an NBA Championship with Bosh at Center.

(I don't think he is very good there -- but the results last year weren't bad.)

My opinions about Miami have no bearing on my comment. I challenge you to find something illogical or 'hate' based on what I wrote. Try using some common sense bro.

You are a turd, ain't no common sense in you.

You got to be kidding me. They got the "Big Three" and were supposed to win multiple championships. When the going was a little tough, they added a future HOFer (Allen) and another starter (Lewis) to come off the bench. Now that things aren't going as good as planned they still need help? Not to worry, I'm sure Stern is getting right on this to preserve the Thunder/Heat finals rematch.

Stern will help them out. So much for the "Big Three" being enough.
