Miami Heat Interested in Nene

by September 04, 2011

It’s pretty unlikely that they’ll be able to can afford the 6-11 free agent center, but regardless, the Heat have plans to contact Nene when they’re allowed to do so and make their best pitch. Via the Miami Herald: “Though the Heat isn’t very optimistic about its chances, expect one of the Miami’s first post-lockout calls will be to Denver free agent center Nene, who opted out of his $11.6 million contract for next season. It’s difficult to see Nene accepting a mid-level exception from Miami if there is a $6 million one in the new labor deal, but he told us previously that Miami is appealing to him. And he told The Denver Post: ‘If people think it’s about money, they’re wrong. I’ve saved my money. I could retire today.'”
