What about point guard in the second round for Miami. They started a second round rookie last year. They guy from UM would be a nice second round pick for Miami. He scored 19 pts per game. He is a good athlete that can dunk and shoot from the perimeter. He is quick. His only weakness is his size. I might be a good idea to draft a big point to play along side wade or to get one as a free agent. Miami doesn't want to sign another free agent untill 2010.
Miami should be more concern about needing a big man. In this year draft Miami does not have 1st round but they can move up and get Jeff Adrian I know he is under size but he is very talented and has heart. Their is also AJ Price or Tyrese Rice or they can move up and get Rodrigue Beaubois from France. The Miami Heat can also look in FA their is David Lee from the Knicks who will be a FA this year. Maybe they can get Andre Miller from the 76ers he will also be FA.
Miami already has Udonis Haslem, Michael Beasley, Jermain O'Neil, and Jamal Magliore. They have some other no name guys who can come in a play D-fence. What they need is a POINTGUARD. Chris Quinn just isn't cutting it. It might be good to get a veteran who can start and have Mario play behind him, but Mario has played with Wade for a year. I think at this point maybe we should get a good point guard. Miami also has a log jam at sf and sg. Maybe we can trade one of our small forwards or shooting guards and move up to get a back up point guard. Michael beasley was the number 2 overall pick for a reason. He was second in scoring in all of college basketball and first in rebounding. There isn't a big that will even be close to as good as beasley will be in the future.
Why are you guys hating on Mario? He was a stud last season with the Heat. He finished in the top 5 in spg as a rookie. Theirs no pressure for him out there with Wade handling the ball more times than not. For a rookie I think he out preformed everyones expectations whose never heard of him. 10ppg, 5apg, 3rpg, 2spg, 114 3pters, 148ftm all shooting 42% from the field. He's not going to be an over the top point guard next to Dwyane Wade, but he's in a perfect system for him to play in and should blossom into a top 15 bg next season.
im not sure if overpaying for a pg would be so smart. with dwade handling the ball 80 percent of the time(not really, just seems it) i think they need a 3 point shooting pg. just like they did when they went to the final and just like they have now. a little upgrade would be nice, but not necessary. think of a mo williams type. look what he did for cleve.
Im probably gonna get a lot of negatives for this one but the Heat actually need a SF. Everyone says that Beasley can play the three, but lets face it, as a 4, he grabs a15 boards a game. If they could trade Haslem, I would do it. I would probably do it for a SF, or if not a center.
i would lamost rather have haslem on my team than beasley. haslem does his thing, 10-15 points, 8-10 rebs a game. i think beasley would require the ball too much and disrupt the offense. i would like to see him moved and them bring in a true 3. i agree with you
Haslem is garbage. If Beasley would be starting, he would have a 23-11 game for sure. Haslem has a 7 game hot-streak throughout the season and then he doesnt contribute at all. Beasley, out of the last 5 games he STARTED average around 25-15.
yes, the numbers would be there but i dont think the team chemisty would be and wade needs to be number one and two option. beasley would just need the ball too much to help
Haslem is a good role player, Beasley is already better than Haslem. We don't have a better SF option than Beasley, because I don't think we will be able to resign Jamario Moon. I think a SF in the second round is going to be hard to find though. That is why I was thinking point guard. This draft seems to be loaded with point guards. It would be great if we could resign Moon and trade Haslem and draft a big, but then again Haslem would make a great backup if he stayed with Miami. I don't think there is a big market for him. He is not quick enough to keep up with Josh Smith or tall enough to defend Garnett down low. Beasley is the perfect fit in the east right now at power forward because he is in between those two guys.
Eric Maynor or Curtis Jarrels, or Ty Lawson!Perfect fit at point guard,or second round Cedric Jackson Cleveland St!
I think that with the last pick in the NBA draft, Miami will draft Jack McClinton (P.G. from U.M.). He is a great scorer, but he needs to prove he can run the offense in the NBA. Then with thier first pick in the second round Miami will draft a seven footer or at least a guy who is close to seven foot. I don't think that there is a chance that they will not draft Jack McClinton with the last pick in the draft.
