Love the pickup! HEAT needed more shooters.

This puts Chalmers, Napier and Ennis on the block.

HEAT President Pat Riley will be meeting with Amare Stoudamire today, which would put Birdman on the block.

Solid pickup for the minimum. Good depth player as long as you aren't relying on him.

If they sign Amare they would be capped at the roster limit of guaranteed contracts:

Dragic, Chalmers, Napier, Wade, Green, Zoran, Johnson, Deng, Winslow, Bosh, McRoberts, Haslem, Whiteside, Andersen, Amare

I'd expect a trade, but it would be nice of they just went all in with that roster and said to hell with luxury tax.

He's okay for the minimum if they are that much worried about the taxes, just going off the rumors.

But to be honest, no, not my preference. They had issues last year with Andersen injuries and they are looking at another old injury prone big man with a trade off of better offense for weaker defense.

No, every team does not capitalize their name. The HEAT stylize their name as such in every official document and press release. See example below. If it's a pet peeve of yours, we don't care. Good day sir!

I love this pickup for the minimum. The guy has averaged 20+ PPG per 36 minutes each of the last two seasons and a career .368% 3-point shooter. He provides strong scoring off the bench and will be easily be able to slip into the starting lineup on nights when Wade needs rest. Green will also bring needed athleticism on the wing and all of a sudden Miami has good depth on the wing with Wade/Deng/Green/Winslow/Ennis. He will likely be our 6th man.

He's a journeyman as this will be his 8th NBA team in his 9th NBA season. Green's been all over the place and that brings it's own sort of veteran knowledge. He will be yet another veteran that can help Winslow, especially because Winslow will probably be on the court with him quite a bit. The more we make moves like this, the more I really like this team's chances next season.

Now if we could sign Boozer to the tax payer MLE and trade McRoberts or Chalmers for tax reasons rather than Birdman I'd be really happy. I know we're linked to Amare, but Boozer is better IMO.

Dragic/Johnson/Napier
Wade/Green/Richardson/Zoran
Deng/Winslow/Ennis
Bosh/Boozer/Haslem
Whiteside/Birdman

I'd be ecstatic about that team, although I would like to find a way to keep Willie Reed from our summer league, he's been amazing. I would say trade Zoran but for sentimental reasons I keep him, so maybe we either cut Richardson (non guaranteed contract) or trade Napier to keep Willie Reed.

He left the Summer League team, doubt we finish the season undefeated now. Easy decision for him, he got a guaranteed contract for $500,000 and apparently Miami wasn't going to guarantee him that kind of money. Good for him because his play got him an NBA contract, disappointing the Heat lose control of him in the process. I believe the NBA should change it where teams can keep control of their summer league/D-League players and make them sort of like a minor league system, like baseball. Reed deserves an NBA contract though.

Whiteside played 7 less minutes and a lot of the games he played in he came of the bench in scrub minutes until we figured out he was a monster. I don't see how someone could honestly say he won't be a top center next year. He will be better than Drummond as a full time starter.

I didnt see anyone say Heat will be a title contender. They will be one of the top teams in the east if they dont get hit by injuries again. What's the big about it? Basically they are adding Bosh, MacRoberts, Winslow, Green, Dragic this year. Whiteside and Dragic came in during the middle of the season. None had time to really build up chemistry. All these guys going healthy into the preseason camp will make the team significantly better. Why are you so hurt about what the Heat fans are expecting from their team? It's not like your Bucks or Pistons who have been nowhere in past what like 10 years? Heat has been one of the best teams in past decade or so. Stop embarrassing yourself. If you dont care about them dont go into their forum to troll or dont click on their threads. Is it that tough?

Dude I can find 40 game periods where Drummond absolutely ***** on those numbers. Why is that a target of yours? I was happy for you guys to have Whiteside, cut out this arrogant HEAT nonsense and let him decide his own destiny.

Go get Whitesides averages as a starter for 32 games and then find me Drummonds in a 32 game stretch that ***** on those numbers.

Cousy said he's the closest thing to Bill Russell since Bill Russell. Go check his game logs from this year. His numbers are crazy.

Drummond: 16 PPG 16 RPG 2 BPG

Whiteside: 18 PPG 15 RPG 4 BPG

Are you so sure Drummond is better than Whiteside?

It's unquestionably a great signing. He might not be a great player, but in that role, and especially for a minimum salary, it's a great get. You rarely see better minimum signings from over-the-cap teams.

Oh wow sorry because I have a life and aren't arguing per 36 stats, I am a biotch? There is one group of people here aren't laughing hysterically at the notion that he's better than Drummond, and it's heat fans. Drummond has months of near 20 & 20 averages and he was leading the middle for one of the hottest teams in the league until Jennings went down.

Everyone is really impressed by Whiteside, wtf do you feel the need to throw him down people's throats? The reasons he wasn't successful before he landed in Miami can be applied to anyone.

Lol @ posting per 36 numbers and assuming you won anything. Post all star break Drummond averaged nearly 18 & 16, when I get into my office for the day I'd be happy to post the numbers. You'll ignore them, in favor of a 40 game serving size I'm sure.

Take a look around fellas, not a single non heat fan has supported any of these crazy ideas.

So Green to the Heat eh…

Off topic much? GTFO here numbers nerds. Don't mean shiat you calculating crackpots. Right now Drummond is easily better. After next season spark up the debate again, nothing matters right now until they each get another season under their belts to add to the debate. Until then aren't we supposed to be talking about Green? Great pickup, always nice having a potential 20-30 point threat off the bench on any given night. Wade will appreciate the rest on nights Green gets it going

If you had a life you wouldn't come troll in the Heat forum or in every Heat thread like a little kid. Post whatever numbers you want I'd like to see them. Whiteside is a better shot blocker scorer and is way more efficient. Drummond 51% from the field is terrible for a big man. Whiteside will be better than Drummond next year in possibly every major statistic you look at for a Center.

Pretty ironic when you brag about having a life while the guy provided an argument (right or wrong) you have specifically asked for. And even more ironic when you have to go to other team's internet forums to troll because apparently you are having fun doing that. Doesn't sound like a "life" to me.

Here we go with the life thing. Is that the only card you have? Trust me dude, I have plenty of life, and his argument is Terribly flawed. Are we going to just ignore the season before when Drummond had the highest fg% in the league? It's very clear you're grasping for straws on this one. I'm glad you think Whiteside will be better in every way next season, just cause. Do you think I have time to listen to your willy nilly nonsense? Your evidence is about as opague as it gets. Per 36 numbers? Lol.

How long is it going to take for either one of you to recognize this argument is asinine, not a single non heat fan agrees. I know you don't care , because YOU'RE THE HEAT!! I've asked you to continue this next season where we can have an actual look at it instead of comparing a player who has basically been top 5 in most big man categories since he entered the league, to a guy who did it for 40 games. But no, you continue to spew nonsense as if anyone cares. Your opinion is worthless to me.

Practice a little bit more, maybe we can debate again when you're older and have an understanding of the game beyond 36 minute stats. And when you begin to comprehend the game beyond 48 games.
Later ladies.

Im still waiting on those numbers you said you were going to post when you got to your office lol. Lol @ bringing up Drummonds stats the year before last. His percentage took a huge dip. That's like me bringing up Wades stats from 2003-2011 and using them to argue he's still the best SG in the league. If you could post the number you were talking about it would be greatly appreciated ma'am.

To be fair,. Drummonds been in the league tearing it up for 3 seasons now, opposed to Whiteside who was cut over and over again but finally found a home with the heat for half a season.

To be honest, Whiteside lucked into that position seeing as how badly Miami needed a real center since 2010. He excelled in exactly what they were looking for: being an anchor for the defense, solid pick and roller, great finisher, and just someone to crash the boards.

Yes he posted some godly numbers, but you also have to take into effect that there were practically 0 scouting reports on his game and generally he just surprised most teams with his overall play and hustle. Also to the point about his fg% vs Drummonds you also have to take into account the team makeup and how Miami > Detroit even with Bosh being out. Whiteside also had the luxury of pretty much being the number 1 low post option when Bosh was out.

So arguing Whiteside vs Drummond is really a moot point at this time. You don't know if Whiteside will be able to continue his dominance(I think he will) but half a season isn't enough to justify him being better than Drummond whose been a dominating center ever since he got drafted. Also with Miami making key additions to the team and Monroe leaving to the Bucks, I am sure there is going to be transgression in Whiteside numbers and a huge boost in Drummonds.

Yeah I don't know wtf is going on with Drummond and Whiteside in this thread but the Green signing is a steal. He can shoot, finish at the rim, he plays a position they needed depth and he is just a hear removed from being a 15ppg starter. Fantastic signing by the Heat.

phantasyyy
07-12-2015, 03:43 PM
Yeah the heat have quietly had a great off season..

Resigning Wade/Dragic
Justise Winslow dropping to them - giving them the youth to build around while giving the much required depth behind Wade/Deng to prevent further injuries.
Signing Amare/Green - Once again improving their bench which was absolutely dismal, two great scoring options. Amare signing allows them to bring Bosh back slowly and get him back into game shape. Green is the off the bench spark that they envision Beasley being last year, and he has proven to be a dead-eye shooter with his stoopid athleticism as well
The return of Mcbob from injury - he'll be key addition as his playmaking/athleticism and ability to stretch the floor will complement the starters


Dragic/Wade/Deng/Bosh/Whiteside

Chalmers & Napier backing up the 1
Green & Winslow backing up both the 2 & 3
Mcbob & Amare backing up the 4, with amare playing spot minutes at the 5
And assuming Anderson comes back he'll the primary backup for the 5 (could a heat fan clarify why they're so persistent on moving him?)

I think they'll be a darkhorse team in the east and make big run.

Obviously the Cavs will still be team to beat and likely #1 seed
The loss of Carroll for the Hawks is huge - he was the primary wing defender - so they'll get knocked down a few pegs
The coaching change for the Bulls is something to keep an eye on - and without any major changes it shouldn't be too much a problem
The Wizards just lost their veteran presence in Pierce, and we'll see if the youngbloods were able to soak up his leadership qualities and take that step forward to becoming a more dominant team
Raptors bolstered their defensive woes with their free agent signings all being defensive oriented players.
Also the Bucks are on the rise and I think are going to do plenty of damage

1-Cavs - nobrainer
2-Bulls - chemistry will play big role in them racking up the W's
3-Heat - ill slot them here..
4-Raptors - still playing in the dreaded Atlantic division
5-Hawks
6-Wizards
7-Bucks
8-76ers..lmao kidding I do think the Pacers or Boston has enough talent to take the last spot.

Because a lot of fans are concerned with how much in luxury tax Micky Arison pays.... which really shouldn't be a thought for fans anyway.

Also Andersen has become a little injury prone and easily winded at 36 yrs old.

But I think the combination of both Amare and Andersen can limit each other's playing time and wear and tear. Also makes for a good exchange of offense vs defense.

What a freakin bargain. Typical Riley.
Gerald Green, in the prime of his career signs on to take 'challenge' from Pat Riley for vet min. Are you kidding ?? This kid is one of the more explosive role players in the NBA. 6th man ofty candidate. Could easily start on a chunk of teams.

Goran Dragic, Mario Chalmers, Shabazz Napier
Dwayne Wade, Gerald Green, Tyler Johnson
Luol Deng, Justice Winslow, James Ennis
Chris Bosh, Amar'e Stoudemire, Michael Beasley
Hassan Whiteside, Chris Anderson, Udonis Haslem

Gotta give credit where credit is due. Aside from giving in to Wade's greedy bum *****. Gotta say, Riley has done a great job this offseason. I respect his passion to win and urgency to put the best players on the floor for Miami.
Most teams after losing a player like James could take years to recover. Not with a P.Riley however.
If both Wade and Bosh can stay healthy and be ready for the playoffs, I expect this team to make some noise..

Whiteside breaking out mid season last year was a huge for this team. That allowed Riley and co the luxury to focus elsewhere.
Deng choosing to opt-in was a bit of a bummer imo. Hes at the very end of his prime now and at best will be a solid, overpaid, role player.
If only the Heat had any idea they would be landing Winslow in the draft at the time they decided to sign Deng. Imo would be better off with a combination of Winslow/Green/Ennis.

Dragic in his first full season should thrive with Bosh now healthy and ready to return.

Looks like Miami has a nice solid young nucleous to build with as well:
Justice Winslow, James Ennis, Tyler Johnson, Shabazz Napier, Josh Richardson, Hassan Whiteside
