Default Heat after Rafer Alston & Keyon Dooling?

Quote:
The Heat -- which says it would prefer to trade for a backup point guard than sign one -- spoke to New Jersey about ex-Heat guards Rafer Alston and Keyon Dooling, one of whom could be dealt. Nothing materialized, but the door was left open for further talks.
http://www.miamiherald.com/sports/co...y/1213387.html

Which one do you think is a better fit?

I like Dooling because of his better & more consistent shooting. I also like his versatility, he can play either PG or SG. His defense is slightly better, and he's 4 years younger and could possibly be part of the Heats future plans. He has a partially guaranteed contract going into 2010.

I like Rafer because he is more of the true sense of a "vet". He has more playoff experience, plays like a true PG and will set up the offense and teammates as well as score, and he's a little more crafty being able to hit the little floater in the lane, etc.. He's also a true expiring deal.

Either would be great.

Rafer Alston would be the better fit at PG imo...would Chalmers still start? If it was for 6th man, gimmi Dooling. PG starter, Alston.

I was really impressed by Alston in the playoffs. He played really solidly. I would definitely prefer him.

So how do you guys think Alston would do coming off the bench?

Would he be okay backing up Chalmers? would a player as old as him be able to find a rhythm off the bench?

Agree on the first part, can't really say I agree on the second. Chalmers is a solid defender and should get the nod with Alston being the offensive spark off the bench.

Even if we did get Rafer, Spo will start Chalmers, & the only way Skip gets that starting spot is if 1) Chalmers go's down, or 2) chalmers regreses from last year, & i seriusly dought that.


In the end, i dont see us getting Rafer unless NJ actcepts Quin, Wright, Cuba, $3mil, & a 2nd r pick.

Like i said, i don't see rafer in MIA any time soon.

Well it's now official. Rafer is back with the Heat.

Now it will be interesting to see how quickly he advances to starting PG.

Quote:
MIAMI (AP)—Rafer Alston(notes) got his wish, signing with the Miami Heat for the remainder of the season and getting the chance to play alongside Dwyane Wade(notes) again.

The 33-year-old point guard cleared waivers at 6 p.m. Thursday, and the Heat announced the signing about an hour later. Alston will be with the team when it opens a six-game road trip Friday in Phoenix.

Yup.... and Alston is already the starter.

Where's that Riley quote again? Goes something like "I'm not bringing in a veteran to start over Chalmers"...

I liked the way he played against the Suns. We just need Rafer to be a lock down defender and not take stupid shots or make stupid passes.
