Default Heat interested in Luther Head?

Quote:
Agent Mark Bartelstein confirmed that the Heat is one "of about a dozen" teams that has inquired about guard Luther Head, who received a buyout over the weekend from the Rockets and now is playoff-eligible for another team as a free agent. - South Florida Sun-Sentinel Blog

I think he'd be a nice upgrade over Chris Quinn. Although his ballhandling and defense aren't strongpoints, they are still slightly better than Quinn's. He has similar range, but is also slightly better at getting to the hoop. He's also one of the few guys who is probably in game shape.

Riley, do it!

Well according to his agent and ESPN, it's official:

Quote:
Luther Head, the combo guard who was recently bought out by the Houston Rockets, will sign with the Miami Heat, according to his agent.

Head will sign once he clears waivers Wednesday morning. He was courted by Dallas, New Jersey, Charlotte, Milwaukee and San Antonio but chose Miami because of the chance for playing time, the opportunity to make a nice playoff run and the possibility of staying with the Heat over the long haul.

Head averaged 4.8 points and 1.6 assists in 22 games with the Rockets this season.

Like I said above, I'm excited about him joining the Heat. He has ball-handling and defensive issues with his game, but he's still better in both categories than Quinn, while being alot quicker and being just as good a shooter. Hopefully he works for his next contract and really picks his game up to help the Heat make the playoff push.

Congrats on signing him. I might post here more often now that Luther is apart of the team.

For those Heat fans who might not have seen this guy's game, here's a mix I found on YouTube:

So you can see why I'm so excited in him being an upgrade over Quinn. The guy can drive alot better, is way quicker, and should do much better overall.

That was a good mix. I remember seeing half of those games. They didn't put his game winner against the Clippers in this vid but its all good.

Are you guys related or something? Cause i have yet to find a fan that has told me that he was their favorite player.

Still i like the signing. Just want to ask you who knows him better then me, how good is his defense?

Lol, nah, but he excited me and showed me he had game for his first 2 or 3 years, and as far as his defense, it used to be good. He used to get a lot of steals but he started to lack it a little bit.
