    Following Heat owner Micky Arison's tweet, several sources tell Yahoo! Sports Ray Allen has committed to Miami.

    This has to put us in the LEAD for Camby (HOPEFULLY).... it was between MIA and NYK... Heat give MLE to Ray Allen, This should put us in the front seat for Camby.

    the only thing that would set us back would be for MIAMI to S&T for Camby i would assume?

    Hmmmmm.. I like Marcus Camby, but shouldn't we focus on getting an SG first? We currently have only one shooting guard on board, and he can't play until January. If we use the MLE on Camby, it'll be a miracle for us to get a starting calibre SG.

    I'm torn between which is more important, i only would say Center is more important because if Chandler goes down who's backing him up? Jorts? jeffries? i don't feel thats exactly going to cut it come playoff time. If camby is there i think we should go for it. Dude still put up like 7ppg and 9 rebs, plus he is capable of spreading the floor meaning we can play Chandler and Camby together at some points he's the ideal Center you would want backing up Chandler

    SG position might be easier for us to fill in, were most likely resigning JR Smith we really only need a guy who can spread the floor and knock down that corner 3 we have enough scoring between Lin, Amare and Melo. I think a Vet min 3 point specialist would do, because look when Shump comes back and is fully healthy no doubt he'll be our Starter again and well be looking at the same rotation last year with Shump/JR.

    We can still use the MLE on a SG but, what happens when Shump returns? thats almost a waste of a MLE unless you move shump to the SF position off the bench instead.

    MLE worthy sg's i wouldn't mind signing though

    Delfino
    Mayo (pipe dream)
    Gerald Green
    Shannon Brown
    Foye (most realistic option)
    Hinrich
    Pietrus(probably can get for vet min)
    Rush(non realistic)
    Courtney Lee

    Rockets center Marcus Camby to meet with Heat on Saturday, source said. Knicks next. Rockets unlikely, and not until after Asik decision.
    Miami is out of the running now that they just signed Ray Allen. The Knicks will need to swing a S&T for J Kidd by the 11th so we can have a legit shot at signing Camby.

    Great point, re tax teams MT @NetsDaily Last chance for sign-and-trades is this year. Tax teams (BKN, NYK, LAL, etc) can't use s&t in future

    The heat can still flip it and offer a sign and trade that would be appealing to the Rockets, so were not out the clear yet. Hopefully he chooses us over them though

    Currently we would have JR Smith & James White as our SG's until Shump comes back, & Lin could also play some minutes at the 2 when Kidd is at the point. Certainly it would be good to have another SG to add some depth, but the need there is not as dire as our need in our frontcourt. Right now our only backups in the frontcourt are Josh Harrellson & Jerome Jordan. We need Camby or KMart.

    Marcus Camby has postponed his visit with the Heat and will meet with the Knicks tomorrow, league source tells @CBSSports.


    Ken Berger ‏@KBergCBS
    The Heat got caught up in the Ray Allen signing and don't have sign-and-trade pieces, so Camby is likely to circle back to the Heat later.

    So is he just not visiting with them anymore or is he just delaying the meeting?

    We really really need camby.

    Tyson played WAY too many minutes last year. And he gets into foul trouble. We are so exposed when he is off the court. Camby would be a perfect back up.

    If we can get him and possibly randy foye, resign Lin and Novak, we are set for next season.

    On the other hand, getting Camby means no more STAT at center, which might have been good for everyone since he is sucking at 4. :P

    I actually prefer Rashard Lewis, but whatever. I'm optimistic regardless

    Si.com is reporting that he has cancelled his meeting with the Heat

    A crucial point in the Camby sweepstakes is that the Rockets are reportedly willing to execute a sign-and-trade with the Knicks but not the Heat because they are more interested in the Knicks’ potential package, ESPN’s Windhorst reported. That would mean Miami could only offer the veteran-minimum salary of $1.4 million, less than half of what the Knicks could give Camby.


    The Miami Herald’s Jackson reported that the Heat have offered Joel Anthony, Norris Cole and a future first-round draft picks to the Rockets. The Knicks could send the expiring contract of point guard Toney Douglas, center Josh Harrelson, and the non-guaranteed contract of Dan Gadzuric, Jackson reported.
    Looks like we're now the frontrunners to get him.

    Such a small signing can have a huge impact on our playoff hopes.

    I am surprised by two things The Heat have done

    1.Can't believe they keyed in on Ray Allen so much, I mean they have guys who spread the floor like Battier and Mike Miller already so why go so hard at Ray Allen? The whole argument would be his Championship and NBA Finals experience, yet Mike Miller has just as much of both and Battier has more rings, in his Prime Ray Allen was 2 levels above both of these guys, now he's about as good!

    Maybe there is a reason why GM's should not give star players everything they ask for during Free Agency!

    2.Also surpirsed to see Mia. offering Norris Cole up in a deal for Marcus Camby....this was like us giving up Shump for Nash.


    I have said it all along, Camby is a player I would love to see us with


    Someone explain why Houston likes our package so much? I guess Jorts and TD (both expiring deals) is ok for an aging Camby
