Heat Scrubs I like (Pre-Season)
This is a thread, dedicated to all those lower-tier players on the heat line up that are fighting for a role player position on the team and those that are just fighting for a contract. It is fitting that this thread be created here, since not a lot of posters post on the Heat forums, but the frequenters here should pay some mind to those on the bottom echelon of the Heat organization.
After watching the Heat and Nets play their exhibition match, I'd say that I do like Earl Barron and I hope that he can develop more of an inside presence. Maybe bulk up a little bit more. He's got plenty of potential and I'd rather have a solid 7 footer backing up Beasley or Haslem in the paint than Magloire.
Also, it's a shame Quinn got injured before, because I really would've liked to see him play. I'm not a fan of Marcus Banks even though he clearly out-performed Chalmers today. I would like to see a duo of Chalmers and Quinn at the PG position, and maybe Livinginston. But I just get the idea that Banks doesn't really mesh well.
Finally, I like the new addition of Youkhouba Diawara. He looks like a solid defender, and can run the break fairly well. I'm not sure how solid he is offensively, but I hope he finds success as well.
Feel free to add any comments about the other Heat players.
My Bad, yeah I meant Joel Anthony earlier, not Barron
