Not really.

I could see him at the 2. Good ballhandler, long enough hassle quicker players on defense. If Chicago could find a way to squeeze him in, it could be interesting. But ideally, yes, he'd play SF. However, he is not limited to that. People put too much stock to positional restrictions. The game is moving away from that.

Wonder who will pick up Tmac, a lot of teams could do with a decent pg and he was playing really well for most of the season..
Probably better than half the starting pg's in the league at least...

I doubt Prince would go to the heat, already has his ring etc so Id say he will sign with the highest bidder. Would be stupid not to. I dont see the heat signing any major standout players, most of the decent players avail will want more than they have to offer IMO. Kenyon Martin would be an awesome pickup but id say there will be better offers for him out there...

^^ Speaking of Chicago, I think they need to sign JR Smith. Someone that can get hot and provide some offence when they stagnate...

You can't say much about the upcoming off-season.

But if anything, the Heat will use at least a portion of their salary to sign a centre, like Dalembert for example.

Bulls need Rudy Fernandez.

I think both Deng and Prince can play the 2 if need be.

I've always been a Prince fan. I loved watching the 02-05 ish Pistons. Such great great squads. I think people here are selling him short. He just turned in one of his best seasons when he was 30 years old (just turned 31). He's got another 3-4 good years at least. His playstyle is a more defensive minded Kevin Durant. Meaning on offense he spends most of his time outside of the post. He's not going to be injury prone. He's one of the NBA's few players who had 6 straight 82 game seasons (last season played 78).

His defense, unselfishness and ability to knock down 3's and finish the fastbreak= perfect for Clippers needs. We don't need another 20 ppg scorer who wants 20 shots a game. We need a 3rd/4th option (to go with Mo Williams) who is just a threat, ready to knock down shots. With Eric Gordon and Blake drawing so many double teams it would be a very easy job for a veteran SF.

if im Pat Riley im not spending ANYTHING on a wing player unless its for the league min. and im only interested in big men and PGs.

the Heat are already set at the wing positions with Wade and LeBron both getting around 40 minutes a night and Mike Miller and James Jones backing them up.
