    Joel Anthony may consider free agency this summer, but no one is going to pay him more than he’d get by simply taking the player option on the final year of his deal.

  4. Does trading Joel Anthony mean Heat are going after Andrew Bynum? Maybe.

    Chicago Bulls v Cleveland Cavaliers

    It was obvious why Golden State wanted Jordan Crawford as the centerpiece of the three-team trade that went down Wednesday — Stephen Curry has played more minutes than any point guard in the league this season and they need to get him some rest the second half of the season (not to mention the whole…

  5. Greg Oden activated, will be in uniform and could play vs. Wizards Wednesday

    Jan 15, 2014, 6:03 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Sacramento Kings

    Greg Oden could play in an NBA Game tonight for the first time since Dec. 5, 2009. The Miami Heat have activated Oden and he is in uniform as the Heat take on the Wizards in Washington, reports Tom Haberstoh of ESPN as well as other sources. Whether he gets on the court or not…

    Jan 15, 2014, 12:28 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics Jordan Crawford goes up for the jump shot in front of Toronto Raptors John Lucas III in Toronto

    Golden State has been looking to add depth behind Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson all season — the offense has been down just slightly this season, and Warriors missed the spark Jarrett Jack brought off the bench last season (not to mention wanting to get Curry some reduced minutes in the second half of the…

  7. Report: Heat shopping Joel Anthony, seeking depth behind Wade

    Dec 6, 2013, 12:39 PM EDT

    Joel Anthony

    Dwyane Wade is going to be taking a lot of games off this season as the Heat try to rest his knees for the playoffs. It started in the second game of the season and it will continue as he has been out 5 of the Heat’s 19 games (he missed the Bulls game Thursday…

  8. Michael Beasley, Roger Mason Jr. make Heat’s 15-man roster

    Oct 26, 2013, 11:00 PM EDT

    Michael Beasley

    The Heat waived Eric Griffin and Justin Hamilton on Saturday, bringing the team’s roster to the league maximum of 15 players in advance of opening night against the Chicago Bulls on Tuesday. That means that veterans Michael Beasley and Roger Mason Jr. remain with the team for now, which was somewhat expected. But it’s worth…

    Heat pacers Basketball

    The FIBA Americas Tournament is currently taking place in Venezuela and, unsurprisingly, the participating NBA players are getting quite a bit of recognition — Even the players that are rarely recognized during the NBA season, like Miami Heat backup big Joel Anthony. ESPN wrote a 700-word feature on the Canadian Anthony earlier  this weekend, going…

  10. FIBA Americas schedule features Canada vs. Brazil on Sunday

    Sep 1, 2013, 11:30 AM EDT

    Axier Sucre, Diego Bareiro

    The FIBA Americas tournament enters Day 3 on Sunday after a solid first two days of action. Sunday’s games don’t feature the marquee matchups that littered Friday and Saturday, but the first contest of the day should be worth watching. Canada and Brazil are both in the conversation for the Final Four next weekend, a…

    Sep 1, 2013, 9:00 AM EDT

    Argentina's LuisScola goes for a basket against Martinez of Dominican Republic during their FIBA Americas Championship basketball game in Caracas

    The 2013 FIBA Americas tournament finished its second day of action on Saturday night. The games that were supposed to be the best ended up being the most lopsided but, on the bright side, even those games were relatively fun to watch for a weekend in August. Saturday’s featured game, according to your’s truly, took…

  12. FIBA Americas Tournament schedule continues with Canada vs. Puerto Rico

    Aug 31, 2013, 10:00 AM EDT

    Puerto Rico's Jose Barea goes for a basket against Brazil during their FIBA Americas Championship basketball game in Caracas

    Friday’s action was fine at the FIBA Americas tournament down in Venezuala, but Saturday’s games should offer a bit more intrigue. Four of the top five teams will be in action in the second day of round-robin play, featuring an interesting matchup of Canada against Puerto Rico. Both teams take 1-0 records into the first…

    The 2013 FIBA Americas tournament tipped off on Friday in Caracas, Venezuela, with teams from North, South and Central America attempting to move one step closer to playing in the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro. It’s still a bit early to be talking about that since the tournament won’t end until September 11, but…

    Team USA had a mini-camp workout for some younger players this summer, but that was basically it for the senior men’s team. USA Basketball largely gets to take the summer off and gear up for the World Championships in Spain next summer. But much of the rest of the world is going at it in…

  15. Riley says Heat have no plans to use amnesty clause

    Jul 13, 2013, 1:41 AM EDT

    Pat Riley

    As of right now, the Miami Heat have a payroll just above $87 million — that is $28 million over the salary cap and $15.6 million over the luxury tax line. Which will mean about $30 million in taxes on top of the existing salary load — a $117 million bill total. Maybe the Nets…

  16. Could Heat use amnesty on Joel Anthony or Mike Miller?

    Jul 11, 2013, 12:18 PM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Miami Heat - Game Four

    The Miami Heat payroll for next season is set at about $87.3 million, a number that could move a little but not much (the Heat are not expected to use their taxpayer’s mid-level exception). The Heat likely will have the second or third highest payroll in the league. Under the old luxury tax rules, the…

  18. Miami has to get bigger, better if they dream of a three-peat

    Jun 21, 2013, 1:16 PM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Miami Heat - Game 7

    Odds makers already have the Miami Heat as the favorites to win the NBA championship again next year — 2-1 odds at Bovada online. But if the Heat thought this title run was like climbing Mount Everest, wait until next year. The Bulls get Derrick Rose back. The Pacers are not going to get any…

  19. Game 3 television ratings for NBA Finals down from last year

    Jun 13, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Spurs' Duncan and Heat's James battle for position in the first half in Game 3 of their NBA Finals basketball playoff in San Antonio

    Blowouts are not good for television ratings, and two of the three 2013 NBA Finals games so far have been Joel Anthony and Tracy McGrady showcase time. That’s not the only reason ratings have been down, but it’s one. Game 3 of the NBA Finals Tuesday night drew just more than 14 million viewers. That’s…

  20. PBT Draft preview: Dieng can help your defense now. The offense….

    May 19, 2013, 2:01 PM EDT

    Michigan v Louisville

    PBT continues profiling likely first-round draft picks in the upcoming NBA Draft. Today we look at a key member of the NCAA title team in Louisville. Rim protection matters. It mattered in college at Louisville and it matters in the NBA. And that is what Gorgui Dieng brings to the NBA — and can bring…

  21. George Hill injury jeopardizes Pacers’ identity

    May 17, 2013, 2:55 PM EDT

    George Hill, Roy Hibbert, D.J. Augustin

    The puzzle pieces have changed, but the picture of the sailboat they form has not. Under Frank Vogel, the Pacers have relied heavily on their starters. Between them, George Hill, Lance Stephenson, Paul George, David West and Roy Hibbert excel in all areas of the court, offensively and defensively, and really balance each other. But…

  22. UPDATE: It’s official, Heat sign veteran Juwan Howard

    Mar 2, 2013, 2:36 PM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Miami Heat - Game Five

    UPDATE 2:36 pm: Well, that didn’t take long. The Miami Heat have announced the rumors that they were close to signing veteran Juwan Howard were not just rumors — they have inked him for the rest of the season, the team announced. As noted below, Howard is not going to be asked by the Heat…

  23. Report: Four teams have conversations with Amundson

    Feb 28, 2013, 2:36 PM EDT

    Lou Amundson

    Around this time of year, with the playoffs looming and growing closer, teams start to think about adding a little bit of veteran depth to the roster. Guys that will not get a lot of run but can be trusted in small roles, plus will be professional in practice and preparation. That’s where Louis Amundson…

  24. Report: The Miami Heat are talking to Kenyon Martin

    Feb 21, 2013, 2:38 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers v Memphis Grizzlies - Game Seven

    Kenyon Martin has been waiting for his chance. After a respectable season with the Clippers last year — 5.2 points and 4.3 rebounds a game — he wanted some mid-level money and multiple years at age 34. It didn’t come. Nothing came. After a while not even one-year deals for the veteran minimum were available.…

  25. Birdman finds a nest: Heat sign Chris Andersen for rest of season

    Feb 8, 2013, 11:58 AM EDT

    Detroit Pistons' Andre Drummond and Miami Heat's Chris Andersen look toward the inbounded ball immediately after Andersen scored his first points for the Heat against Detroit  in the second half of their NBA basketball game in Miami, Florida

    If there is one vulnerable spot on the Heat it is size — if you ask people from the Bulls and Pacers why they think they can dethrone the champions, it is being able to play bigger and Miami not being able to counter that. Miami tried to deal with that by giving 6’10″ Chris…
