Rumor: Heat interested in Back-Up Big Man?

There’s a reason the Heat have continued to look to add a veteran big man to their roster. They attempted to sign both Kenyon Martin and Joel Przybilla but weren’t able to do so. A radio station in Miami reported the team worked out Rasheed Wallace last week. According to league executives, the Heat have been calling around to gauge demand for reserve big men as the trade deadline approaches.

HoopsVibe’s Very Quick Call: Will the rich, the Miami Heat, get richer?

Reports indicate the reigning Eastern Conference champions are on the prowl for a reserve post. Chris Bosh is out the line-up and the Heat lost free agents Kenyon Martin and Joel Przybilla to the Clippers and Blazers.

Another big body would allow Bosh to man the more familiar high-post when he returns, while providing depth for an extended playoff run.

After all, the Heat will face a plethora of bigs come May and June during the NBA’s second-season. The question is who can they get before the quickly approaching trade deadline.

HoopsVibe’s Very Quick Call: The strong could soon get stronger.
 
Word is the Miami Heat is scouring the free agent stock piles looking for a big to add to their already potent line-up -and the've targeted Kenyon Martin and/or Joel Przybilla.
 
Make no mistake about it, Martin and Przybilla would solidify a somewhat average middle for the reigning Eastern Conference champions.
 
Chris Bosh, a skilled four, would be able to drift to the elbow and face up. Joel Anthony would be more effective in reduced minutes. And the Heat’s already nasty and gritty defense would get a whole lot nastier and grittier.
 
All it would cost is a ne of the Heat's exceptions.
