Eric Dampier

Anyone knows if Dampier decided to go to the Heat or Rockets yet?

It is still unclear where he is going

According to the rumors, the Rockets and the Heat are the front-runners.

i hope he signs with the heat
he will be their only legitamate defender for the likes of dwight howard and andrew bynum, therefore i believe he will be an excellent addition to them

If he indeed goes to the Heat, I think that tops it off. The main problem the Heat have been having is the lack of a starting center. Erick Dampier fits the bill perfectly, a defensive big to compliment Bosh as he did in Dallas with Dirk.

I am pretty sure Dampier will sign with the Heat because they are the favourites to win the championship. Do the Hornets or Rockets have more money to pay Dampier as opposed to the Heat?

He's already

made more than enough cash throughout his career. If he signs with Houston, he's going to share PT with Yao getting 24, Brad Miller getting another 20, and Damp getting the bummy 4.

If he goes to the Heat, he'll get his minutes and best shot to win the championship.

i read that the rockets are

i read that the rockets are offering dampier about a 4.5-5 million contract for two years while the heat are only offering the vet's minimum(which is about a million less than the rockets' offer)

miami

Can someone tell me how many guaranteed contracts Miami has.
Would signing Dampier stop DeSean Bulter From getting a contract?

Erik dampier would be a great

Erik dampier would be a great addition but his best days are far behind him. He's very immobile defensively. He's one of the main reasons why dallas lost to the spurs in the playoffs last season. He is a big body and will help them but in terms of working towards a championship, I just don't see it. He falls for every pump fake, he cant run the floor well, he is no more than a 'big body'

The Heat should be able to add him and probably cut Hasbrough and or Randolph
