Miami Heat Offered Deals to Kenyon Martin and Joel Przybilla

by February 02, 2012

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.”
