Miami Heat Offered Deals to Kenyon Martin and Joel Przybilla

Agents for both K-Mart and Ghostface Przybilla told ESPN that the Miami Heat have expressed formal interest in their clients: “The Miami Heat, interested in any and all veteran big men who become available on the market, are in the race for two such players that could make their decisions by the end of the week … Przybilla is expected to make a choice between the Chicago Bulls and Heat, according to agent Bill Duffy. Martin is interested in several teams, with the Heat in the mix, according to agent Andy Miller. The Sporting News reported Wednesday that Przybilla is planning to make a choice by the end of the week. Heat president Pat Riley has been recruiting both players as the Heat look to add depth to their frontcourt. According to multiple league executives, the belief is that the 7-foot-1 Przybilla is healthy and believes he can contribute to a contender in a limited role off the bench. Przybilla played in 36 games for the Portland Trail Blazers and Charlotte Bobcats last season, averaging 1.8 points and 4.0 rebounds.”

    Heat need a big man that on average will play less than 10 minutes a game, is over seven feet, and will occasionally have to play 20-25 minutes when going against teams with bigger centers. His main concerns should be rebounding and guarding the post, and he should be comfortable producing in limited minutes as to not mess up the rotation.

    someone please sign Iverson just for my own selfish reasons. The guy was too good for his career to end like this.

    Do you really believe that Spo would sit Joel completely out of the lineup? If the answer is ‘no’ then how do you suggest they juggle Joel, Bosh, Haslem, Martin and Ghostface in the lineup?
    If the answer is yes, and you have Martin, Bosh, Haslem, and Pryzbilla splitting the minutes at the four/five spot… I’m open to see how it plays out.

    My answers is an emphatic “yes”. but to be honest i don’t think the situation will play out. ira winderman reported that the rumor was that joel p was leaning miami but kenyon was leaning lob city.

    T-Money: Funny enough, on another forum, that’s what I said the best pairings would be.
    And my answer is emphatically “no” because Spo loves Joel and sucks at rotations, lol.
