lastest trade rumors part 2
On Pietrus: The question is whether the Heat would have anything to entice Golden State. The Warriors are short at point guard, with Troy Hudson sidelined and Baron Davis playing huge minutes. While Smush Parker might not tempt, Jason Williams could.
That means it could take more than Jason Williams or Ricky Davis to shake free the likes of Mike Miller. With Mike Conley Jr. back, the Grizzlies also could be looking for deals for Damon Stoudamire.
76ers General Manager Ed Stefanski has made it known that he now regards Andre Miller as a considerable value, expecting more than low-ball offers for the veteran point guard.

Despite inconsistent play and late-game struggles, Heat swingman Ricky Davis believes he's part of the solution, not the problem. The Heat (8-23) carries the worst record in the East into the New Year, but looks forward to a fresh start Wednesday against the Bucks. Davis carries plenty of the burden -- and disappointment -- from the rough start.
Ricky Davis will earn $6.8 million in the final season of his contract and could be moved by the Feb. 21 trade deadline if the losses continue to mount. But coach Pat Riley has given no indication he is more disappointed with Davis than any of his other underperforming players.
Pat Riley said Luke Jackson, a 6-6 swingman, could be an option at point guard if starter Jason Williams (knee) and backups Chris Quinn (ankle) and Smush Parker (conduct violation) remain limited or inactive.
