Not only did Johnson say he wouldn't mind shifting to a secondary role on a team with an established superstar, he also would change positions.

``That's a great situation -- you have to look at it,'' Johnson told The Miami Herald while discussing his options. ``I'm not saying I'll go play with him or him. But being a free agent, you pay attention to everybody's salary cap, what everybody can do.''

No team is set up to in better position for bolder moves than Miami, the only team in the league with an elite player in tow and the flexibility to add as many as two marquee free agents to max contracts.
With plans to re-sign Wade and with at least $25 million in salary-cap space, Miami vows to be aggressive when free agency opens July 1.
``Most of the players in this league know what Miami is about,'' Heat president Pat Riley said.

``I'm not able to talk to them prior to July 1. All I can do is use my -- I don't need to say it -- whatever it is you need to do prior to July 1, powers of positive thinking.''
Two league sources said there is mutual interest between the Heat and Johnson, although the four-time All-Star has not ruled out returning to the Hawks. Riley's priority -- after re-signing Wade -- is to gauge James' interest in coming to Miami.

Beyond that, the Heat's wish list is believed to feature Toronto's Chris Bosh, Phoenix's Amare' Stoudemire, Johnson and, perhaps, Utah's Carlos Boozer. Despite an aggressive push at the February trade deadline, Miami fell short of acquiring Stoudemire. Riley previously balked at trading for Boozer.
In addressing his free agency, Wade said he would meet with James, Bosh and Johnson to discuss where they could play next season. Wade considers Johnson one of his better friends in the league, with the two building a bond on the U.S. national team.

wait don't they already have that Dwyane guy? I say they aim bigger and better.

Joe Johnson does a lot of ballhandling and a lot of iso plays, I don't think he is what the Heat need with Wade already there. Bosh, Stoudemire, Boozer are all better choices for them.

Don't do it Mr. Riley!

The guy is a bum!.....



Well....maybe he'd be a good 2nd option behind Wade, but if they can get someone even better than JJ along with him, then he'd make a terrific 3rd option.

I'm pretty confident they will get Boozer.

1st option: Dwyane Wade
2nd option: Carlos Boozer
3rd option: Joe Johnson


That team will compete with Orlando and an older (yet wiser and more experienced) Boston Celtics squad to reach the 2011 ECF.

Johnson is probably one of the more overrated players in the league, but if they can get him AND a big man like Boozer, Bosh or Amare, then johnson is put in the perfect position as the third option. He has yet to show he can lead a team when it matters. He's very overrated and will be overpaid, but in the case of the Heat, if they can get him as a third option, it's worth it, cause such a big 3 would be a contender.

Probably, they'd also likely be bad at defense.
Don't forget though, lebron may leave Cavs as well if they lose. And realizing that teams got better, he might join forces with none other, the CHICAGO BULLS :D

I do agree on going after Boozer and Johnson since they are likely cheaper after their bad playoff endings, and the fact that the cash you save can be used to fill in a bench doesn't hurt

It is possible to get Boozer and Joe to go with Wade. Then bring in a young PG like Farmar and center like Haywood for whatever cash they have left on a 3 year deal to get their bird rights. The rest of the team can be filled by adding guys for the vet min like Q and Arroyo.

Miami adding Joe J is a mistake unless they get Boozer too.

there's a talent gap after the big 3,so you put priority on that instead of filling a hole because lebron,wade are so much better than say a boozer,amare,lee


as for the heat i agree,jj isnt talented enough to be a priority of their other needs,seriously i get pat likes star power and all but i'm dumbfounded

Best situation is that we sign:

1.Dwyane Wade
2.Chris Bosh
3. Joe Johnson

Trade Beasley, James Jones, and Arroyo for Harris, draft pick. Than sign another free agent as the center. Pat Riley returns as the coach.

PG - Harris
SG - Wade
SF - Johnson
PF - Bosh
C - Hopefully not Anthony

That would be the greatest day of my basketball life if that happened.

Joe Johnson has been listed as pg/sg/sf in fantay basketball this past season, which means he has to have played x number of games at that position to qualify. X needing to be a healthy amount of games, not just two or three.

So yes, he has indeed played small forward, but I do agree it is not the ideal position for him, and I don't think Pat Riley would sign this guy with the intention to play him at small forward on regular basis.
If he somehow ends up in Miami he will be combo guard with Wade. Both of them have pg skills. Wade more than JJ, but it would probably work out just fine.

Johnson will definitely not be the primary target, however it is good to know all these guys are interested in coming to the Miami HEAT.

05-12-2010, 08:07 AM
Can he play SF? If he can we should do a sign and trade for him giving up Beasley, since Johnson isn't worth a max contract we can get him and sti get Bosh or Stoudamire.

05-12-2010, 08:34 AM
JJ CANNOT play SF. I laughed when I saw that. He has the size but he has no athleticism whatsoever and would get beat constantly. When he plays SG, he gets beat because he's not quick. He doesn't fit a set position, the only reason he put up numbers in ATL is because he shot the ball 20+ times a game. If I'm Miami, I go after Stoudemire or Bosh, let somebody else overpay for him.

Miltown34
05-12-2010, 08:45 AM

yea I would focus more on Boozer and the big guys....They need a defensive center who can get rebs, I would get Boozer before Stoudamire because I think he would want more money.

Won't get a Max deal but pairing him up with a penetrator like Wade would really work

Lo Porto
05-12-2010, 10:31 AM
This works if Johnson takes less than the max. Everyone knows that Miami will be looking to add either Bosh, Boozer or Amare this summer. They will also look to trade Beasley. If Miami can keep Wade at the max, get Booz&JJ at just under the max and trade Beas for a draft pick and get one of those many centers in this draft, they could put a pretty good team together. This all works financially.

05-12-2010, 11:07 AM
The Heat need an inside presence, not Joe Johnson. They need to pursue either Bosh, Boozer, Amare and other PF/C's

Lo Porto
05-12-2010, 11:09 AM
Boozer didn't do that well against the Lakers or the refs the NBA paid. The Jazz would be playing the Suns in the WCF if Gasol only got 7 FT attempts in 4 games. Too bad Kobe got more FT's than Deron, Boozer, and Millsap COMBINED. Because that makes sense...

Back the matter at hand - Johnson would fit what Miami wants to do. Wade at SG, Johnson at SF and either Boozer, Bosh or Amare at PF. That is a contender.

Lo Porto
05-12-2010, 11:21 AM
Without a center making the Lakers work, Gasol could use his size on Boozer. That doesn't mean Boozer isn't a great talent. Boozer is one of the elite post up big men in basketball right now. At post offense, I'd say he's top 10. Joe Johnson is one of the best wings in basketball right now. I'd say he's top 10.

If you put those two with Wade, you'd have a great team and one of the best offenses in the NBA. If you were able to find a pass first defensive PG and a center who does nothing but rebound and play D, the Heat will be a contender.

Iggy is a bad fit next to Wade. We need someone that can spread the floor. + JJ can play the 1, 2, or the 3, & Andre Iguodala $12,200,000 $12,345,250 $13,531,750 $14,718,250 $15,904,750 is way too much to spend on a bad fit.

Stop STOP stop.... Joe Johnson will be a Knick Uniform!!!

Knicks offseason checklist

1) Sign A'Mare Stoudamire to max contract(17.8 mill)

2) Sign SG Joe Johnson( 5yr 82.5 mill)

3) Trade for PG.. either tony Parker or Kirk Hinrich. I honestly believe they would have a better shot at getting Hinrich b/c he has a lengthier contract and the bulls woudl be willing to move him.

4) I would Hope to pull off a Sign & Trade for PF David Lee if we have enough money. But with A'Mare, we can just let David Lee walk.

5) With 37 & 38th overall pick: Knicks would pick up UConn PF S.Robinson & PG S.Reynolds.

Lineup:

C) A'Mare
PF) Al Harrington(signs MLE) / S.Robinson.
SF) D'Gallanari / W.Chandler/ B.Walker
SG) J.Johnson / T.Douglass / JR Giddens
PG) K.Hinrich / S.Rodriguez /S.Reynolds

This instantly makes the Knicks at least a 6th seed in the Eastern Conference. With a new roster, they might even compete with perennial Atlantic Division contender Boston Celtics for a top 3 seed in the East Conference.

I don't see why Joe Johnson couldn't play SF for Miami. He's 6'7", 240 lbs, so he's not exactly undersized.

He's the perfect guy to have with your star guard as well I think. He can handle the ball if need be, but he's also great at spotting up and moving without the ball. He's just a smart basketball player.

Kevin martin and picks to miami for d-wade to houston via sign and trade. It's the truth it's happening. Miami gets stuck with bosh the softy good luck. Wade wants to win not get paid to lose miami isn't winning anytime soon. You take wade and put him in houston with yao coming back and the supporting cast there and they win the west and smack whoever comes outta the east to with a title.

:laugh2: You're not the sharpest knife are you...

But anyways, isn't Yao a free agent? :shrug:

I doubt that deal goes down.. Miami knows what kinda of player they need and what position they need an upgrade in and Joe Johnson is jus not tht player.. Why waste money on okay talent wen u can get an elite forward in Amar'e or Bosh..

And then Lebron James and Dwight Howard decide they want to play for Houston as well.

Wade
James
Howard
Yao

Sounds about right?

So much for Bosh and Lebron playing with Wade in Miami.

I have always wondered someone from miami might have had a one night stand with your gf and you were the lone spectator of that.

I dont understand some bulls fans, Why do they always hate on the heat?? Is it because we have wade??

No becasue they didn't have a allstar to cheer for since 1998 till last year. You can't really blame them when they lacked superior talent so bad for over a decade.

Why is it a hard thing to comprehend that d-wade would want to come to houston? The 4th largest city in the US an a basketball mecca. I didn't mention LBJ OR DH. Houston has like 4 future first round picks and talent to trade for wade they have alot more than most teams could hope to offer. It's a more realistic option than you might think.

Mabye you should check how sharp you are before you question me chump. So you mean to tell me that miami would turn down 3 future first round picks and say kevin martin or louis scola for wade in a sign and trade? And keep in mind the 3 picks came from the knicks who wont contend anytime this century. You are in complete denial if you truly think that miami would turn that down if wade said he wanted out. And no yao isn't a free agent research before you speak and get on my level.

What are you smoking? Wade is worth more than the whole Houston franchise. Resign the injured bigman, stay out of playoffs for next decade, and comeback in 2020 with the first overall pick.

:facepalm: Wow!! Why in the world would wade go to houston, better yet why would the heat want Kevin martin and future picks?? So we just set our self up for 2010 to get martin and picks?? Get real!! We have all this money for a reason, Pat planned it so we can contend. We wont do nothing with martin and picks:rolleyes:Oh and wade wants to go and play with injury prone Yao:rolleyes:

wouldnt work. they just need to get amare or bosh and call it a night. shoot even david lee would really help them and cost a lot less.

Yeah not a very good combo. Johnson loses a whole lot of his mis-match ability if he were to play the 3.

Yao? who is that again?

I think I vaguely remember who you are talking about. He's that guy who used to play for the whatchamacallits back in the day, right? Wait, it's Yao Ming, isn't?

Yeah those old school players aren't really relevant anymore.... this is 2010.
