01:26 PM ET 07.13 | The Miami Heat are $28 million over the salary cap and $15.6 million over the luxury tax line, which means that they could surely benefit from cutting some salary. An easy way for the team to rid themselves of $10 million would be to part ways with Joel Anthony or Mike Miller by using the amnesty clause, but team president Pat Riley made it clear that the team had no intentions of going that route. While it will cost the Heat more money and it isn't the best strategy for long-term success, the Heat have chemistry going and there is no reason to break up the team.

QUOTE(#12):

The Heat has an owner that likes to spend money.

And is not as concerned about his ships.
