07:12 AM ET 08.06 | Being a wing player looking to crack the Heat lineup is no easy place to be. Don't look for James Ennis to be playing for the Miami Heat next season. Those close to the situation believe the second-round pick likely will head overseas. And his agent said Monday he's making calls with that in mind. "There's a good chance he'll play overseas (next season)," Scott Nichols said by phone to FOX Sports Florida. Nichols said a final decision is expected to be made by the end of the week. ... Nichols said he's having discussions with teams in France, Russia, Australia, Italy and Germany about Ennis. Ennis, a 6-foot-7 swingman out of Long Beach State, was taken with the No. 50 overall pick in June by Atlanta and then traded to the Heat for a future second-round pick.

If he is good then why don't you put him on the team? It's the best time to mentor him w/ the help of Lebron and the other veterans. He must not be that good that's why he will be stashed away and forgotten...

they are prepping him to return once the big 3 skedaddles.

Then they should keep him because the Heat has cooled down. No more titles for that trio. LBJ might get more but not with Bosh AND Wade. Maybe with one but not both. More likely without either...

Bold prediction and not quite smart...

How has Miami cooled?

They played 2 teams en route to their back to back and BOTH of those teams exploited Miami's weakness, which is PG and C, yet Miami still won.

They brought back Birdman and added Oden and are rumored to add another veteran PG.

How have they got worse?

If Oden ends up being 75% of the player he was, that is a VAST improvement of size, rebounding, defense and scoring at their weakest position.

Sorry, but Miami is going to be a seriously tough out for another few seasons.

Did you give them a rectal to find the temp? What other team you think is going to stop them from a 3-peat? None in the east for sure.

I have not but if this is a guaranteed way to predict winners. I just might start practicing it and becoming a bookie.

Thanks for the tip. <-- Did that come out wrong?

oden might be 75% of the player he was 10% of the time as he will likely be hurt after about 10% of the games and wade had a heck of a time staying healthy last year and don't knock the other teams in the east as there are some studs, brooklyn, bulls, even them dam knicks aint too shabby and lets not forget those pacers, i do believe the east will win another championship tho

Great comment. Plus I'd like to add the fact that a Three-Peat is a tough thing to achieve. Odds are against them. Especially since they were in the finals three years in a row now, a fourth time just isn't in the books IMO.
