He isnt an upgrade on Udonis at this point and he isnt a great defender.
How was he a difference maker? He can hit a jumper anymore and he is undersized as well. As a body he might be able to play a few games but I dont see him as a rotational guy come playoff time which is what we are looking for.
30 rebounds from one man
Look, he isn't a world beater, but he's defensive oriented player that rebounds, and that's more than we can say for UD at this point judging on what we've seen for the last two years. K-Mart even at his age is still pretty athletic and can run the floor. He's the type of player that we could use....
Miami also gives their own 1st rounder
Why MIA do it: We get a big man and some bench help.
Why Was does it: Chalmers can be a good backup, miller can be cut in a year, jones will probably leave next year and save them money, and harrelson can be a backup for them.
The heat can also sign guys such as delonte west to take chalmers place.
This trade isnt too realistic, but is it possible?
I swear every time I read this thread some people just keep mentioning his name like he's Christ himself who's gonna magically solve our rebounding and defensive problems. Like he is a great rebounder or a great defender. Reality is he hasn't been a good rebounder for years, certainly not better than UD. And he used to be a good undersized defender but at this point people here are fantasizing about it. As long as we have UD and Battier he ain't getting any minutes here. Team scouts know A LOT more than we do. The way some of our fellow Heat fans has been describing him here there's no way he would still be available.
if i were pat ill try to do this one
kmart and west sign vet min
dalembert for MM pitt harellson and philly 1st
dalembert is not in rotation of bucks
kmart and west still available can be a big help
we got more defensive big line up than we have right now
Kyle Lowry is on the block, though no way the Heat would come up with a good enough package.
I agree. A west, Kmart, and Dalembert pick up would be nice. All three of those guys like to play rough and they get in there to position them self to get the rebounds.
I honestly doubt any team is willing to trade with us at any point of the season unless its dealing with the big three.
