    He will find a team eventually - but interesting that Stanley Johnson is now a FA from the Pistons - a guy many thought might be drafted by the Heat - and couldve/shouldve been had he not been selected by the Pistons.

    In other news, the Heat start summer league with a win - Herro AND Ducan Robinson did their thing.

    Riles and the Heat blew this one. The Heat were to caught up in the Wade farewell tour -- and wasted Ryan Andersons presence on the team when he could've contributed in the stretch run.

    He will go on to help another team.

    That said -- the other moves now become official as well.

    lol Ryan Anderson is a shitty player. Couldn't even get playing time on a shitty Suns team.

    What does the wade farewell tour has to do with this? Wade isn't a PF and Anderson isn't a SG

    Russell Westbrook the latest player involved in trade rumors tied to the Heat.

    The Heat could make things interesting in the East and the NBA as a whole if they add Westbrook somehow after adding Butler

    Rumors that Herro could/might be included in a trade, once signed - for Westbrook.

    Just rumors - but interesting dynamics developing with regards to the Heat. As per usual, Riles not sitting back.

    I really hope we don't part with herro, he's a promising young piece.
    Russel is on the wrong side of 30 and although he is still productive he isn't worth giving up young promising assets for. We could use the expiring contracts next year to make a splash in free agency, I think with Jimmy and what we have we can be pretty competitive.

    Tyler Herro has officially signed his contract - eligible to be included in a trade if the Heat want to.

    I am all for getting the calls right - but the challenge system in the NBA is beyond unnecessary. This will go against the pace-of-play concept the league said they wanted.

    That being said - it seems to be only one challenge per game - per team -- so at least there is that.

    Report: NBA considering reduction in games, in-season tournament for 2021-22

    This next thing is just pointless.

    Again, I am all for getting the calls right - even pace of play - But, all these potential changes are just drastic and unnecessary.

    The league needs to just cut down on pre-season and summer league games.

    More importantly, todays players need to just grow a sack and play. They get overpaid millions to play a damn game and all they do is bitch and whine.

    Its been since the late 60s that 82-games have been played in a season. Unfortunately, its been since the mid-80s that the leagues biggest divas began to be born it seems.

    Rant is done.

    Reports out that trade talks with OKC have stalled due to the Heat being unwilling to part with Herro -- rightly so.

    Westbrook to the Rockets - given OKC's asking price to the Heat for him - the Heat did the right thing on this one.

    No way would I want him, he seems to be a cancer everywhere he goes. He's getting old and would rather just roll with our young guys and spend money next year in free agency when some of our big contracts expire.

    There has to be an underlying reason that Riley is willing to take him on, he either wants to recoup some draft pics or there are some other players he is seeking to trade for as well.

    And now, rumors that the Heat are willing to take on the contract of John Wall in order to acquire Beal
