Miami Heat Still Trying to Trade Smush Parker

The Heat’s plans for Smush Parker? Trade him.

Parker rejoined the team Friday after being on the inactive list since his Nov. 27 altercation with a valet attendant, who alleged Parker grabbed and twisted her arm in trying to retrieve his keys. Parker didn’t play Friday night, and it’s unsure if and when he will play.

”I’m going to be very honest with you. We’ve been trying to trade him so if it doesn’t work, he comes back and plays,” Heat coach Pat Riley said.

”We hope he’s been working out. We worked him out before he went home for the holidays. . . . Obviously we’re down some point guards, so we’re reassessing it.”…(Click here for more from the Miami Herald.)
