The team doesn't need any more talent, not that it's gonna hurt but they're their own worst enemy until they figure it out imo..

Dexter Pittman is in good shape. I haven't heard any latest news on Eddy Curry.

The Heat's off season moves reminds me when the Lakers signed Ron Artest in the 2009 off season.

I can see that, although less risk goes along with signing Battier you'd just hope that he can bring that key ingredient.

Would be a great addition. Shane puts up his body on the line. Just the type of player Riley and Spoelstra would love to coach.

So dalembert won't accept the MLE?

From that article they will sign battier with part of the MLE and kwame with the other half?

I'd say getting Battier means goodbye Mike Miller?

Shane would fit well with the Miami system, but only if he can be had for the veteran's minimum.

I think it's obvious the Heat need to spend their MLE on a center. Wade and LeBron showed throughout the playoffs they have no problem holding the perimeter down without much help.

Why do they need another SF? They already have a SF/SG that basically does the same exact role as Mike Miller? I don't understand. Yeah LeBron can play the point guard role, but I'm not sure how good he would be at the actual position on both sides, even if him or Wade could play the PG, it's not that big of a move to me.

I agree, but I doubt the Heat coaching staff really like the fact Lebron plays every single minute. They want to buy him some time on the bench, Battier would be a great addition to most/any side.

More so with the back to back to back.

If Dalembert won't accept MLE then

Battier and Kwame may be good options.
