Miami Heat might be active in making trades
 

 
The rumor mill is gearing up around the NBA with the trade deadline approaching, and the Heat has not been immune to speculation.

A league source on Saturday told The Miami Herald, “I think they’re going to do something,” but added, “What that is, who knows?”

Adding another big man is the obvious answer.

Center Eddy Curry hasn’t been able to break into the rotation and road games against Western Conference foes have highlighted the Heat’s lack of size inside. The Heat has a few tradable pieces, including Mike Miller and Udonis Haslem.

The deadline is March 15, and the Heat currently is only carrying 14 players. Center Mickell Gladness was released Friday, and Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said on Saturday that the team isn’t in a rush to fill the spot. It is possible — perhaps even likely — that the Heat stays at 14 players and trades for no one. After all, Miami did enter Saturday’s game against the Pacers with a record of 30-9.

For players such as Miller, the approaching deadline is a looming specter he has learned to accept.

Miller has been traded three times, including once from Orlando to Memphis on his birthday.

“No one really knows, that’s the thing,” Miller said. “You can hear things but you never know if there’s any substance behind anything.”

Miller says he understands that trade speculation and last-minute deals are part of the business but said it was easier to deal with when he was younger.

“It’s changed a lot for me,” Miller said. “The past years when I’ve been involved with speculation, or whatever — because I have a lot — it was different because it didn’t really affect me.

“Still, I’m going to play and be happy playing but more than anything it’s about your family, which is difficult.”

Miller’s name has been floated in trade speculation due to the Heat’s depth at his position.

Miller, Shane Battier and James Jones are all quality players, with Jones rarely entering games anymore for meaningful minutes.

Miller’s contract — three years, $18.6 million — could be difficult to move, however, because of last year’s rash of injuries.

POINT OR FORWARD?

LeBron James has been asked to guard all five positions this season. If he had it his way, however, James would prefer guarding opposing teams’ point guards over their power forwards.

“I think it’s the point guard because you have to f!ght more and more through screens,” James said. “It’s pretty much a pick-and-roll game these days, so you got point guard … you’ve got to get around screens and get around fives and fours. When you’re guarding a guy in the post, you’ve got one objective.”

One objective or not, James said there’s nothing fun about guarding players in the post.

“It’s not fun guarding those big guys, the Al Jefferson, LaMarcus Aldridge and all those guys that I’ve been matched up with some point in the game,” James said. “It’s not fun, but it’s whatever it takes.”

Well is Kobe,Andrew Bynum and Gasol enough? We need a center, you need a pg. I thought you would be smart enough to understand that.

Wasn't enough for the Celtics. Look at it this way...the Heat are searching for PJ Brown, not Dwight Howard.
