I heard an interesting conversation on Dwyane Wade's role w/ the Miami Heat. So Tim Reynolds, an AP Writer for those of you don't know him, was on 790 AM/104.3 FM the Ticket Miami. He was a guest on Josh Friedman's show, locally syndicated sports show with a decent reporter/radio host. He asked Tim Reynolds if Wade can come off the bench while restructuring his deal to 3-4 yrs. Reynolds said you need to have someone to replace Wade, which I totally agree with. This made me think about Manu Ginobili being on the Spurs and James Harden w/ OKC. Yes, these guys thrived as critical 6th men respectively. Wade doesn't have the three point threat, but Reynolds acknowledged that Wade would be better than almost any bench guy in the league in that position. I like the idea of the conversation. It extended Manu's career and he was huge in the Finals. I say it depends on how the Heat's cap space looks and who is available. If you sign Nick Young (for example), you lose a two way player for an inconsistent offensive talent. I also think drafting a SG is possible if you want to get a starter, but that might involve trading up as well, which the Heat have some assets, but not many to do so. As much as the Finals loss stings and I love Dwyane Wade, I want to keep him and extend his career as long as possible. I don't mind seeing him be an all-star sixth man, but he might not be comfortable in that role and it could be a ridiculous idea too. Tim Reynolds doesn't believe he lost his ability to remain effective (I don't think he lost it either). What are your thoughts?
