Free-agent Shaun Livingston is within hours of joining the Miami Heat.

The former Los Angeles Clippers point guard will meet with Heat management Friday, at which time he is expected to be added to the roster.

If we make the playoffs, & him & Zo come back healthy. The playoffs will get very interesting. Talk about a wild card.

For sure!!!


thats what I'm tlakin about.
I've just always had this wierd feeling about this team ballin' and I've always felt this team was so much better than ppl gave them credit for.
ESPECIALLY IN THE EAST


There is NO way a team with a healthy Dwade, Marion Beasly wont get into the playoffs and make noise. NO WAY. I'm sorry but given the fact that they finally got a year together, dwade and marion would be a sick 1.2 punch.
Beasly should be nice


Wild cards of coaching, Dorell Wright, J. Jones, Magliore, poss. Livingston, healthy ZO, this team when inspired just lookes really athletic and much younger.

I'm pulling for them..

Nice pickup for you guys. Any idea of the length of the contract? While I don't expect him to have an immediate impact as he is still healing his knee, this move will pay off in the future. A healthy Livingston, Wade, Marion, Beasley, and Zo will get you in the playoffs for sure, then you guys still have depth with Wright, Magloire, James Jones, and Marcus Banks as well. Nice squad you guys are building, and since Livingstons my favorite player, I might have to jump on the Heat bandwagon.

Well its official: Shaun Livingston signs deal with Miami Heat

He signed a two year deal. Hopefully he can make it in the rotation by late December. If he's playing well he will give us some options before the trade deadline. I'd like the future bench rotation to be Chalmers, Cook, Dorrel, Jones, Anthony and Blount.

Trade the rest of the guys.

2 year deal is what I've read.

What about Haslem? NO? How about we switch Blount for Haslem?
But at least thing are starting to look better.

I hope Shaun can really contribute to the team when he gets fit...

Haslem is a starter, for now, at the Center. Are you saying you want him on the bench and Blount to start?

I want him out too. But I really don't know who's willing to take him at two seasons left at 7-8 million. On the NBA Trade Machine, I've played around with different combinations and couldn't come up with a trade that benefited both teams.

Too bad Isiah isn't with the Knicks anymore. He probablly would have solved that problem for us.

I love this signing. The thing I really like about it is that defensively, Dwade can now take on the pg and have livingston take on the shooting guard. Now Dwade no longer has to cover a guy who's usually 2-3 inches bigger than him, which can be helpful and instead cover the pg who are usually smaller than him, which gives Dwade the advantage.
