The South Florida Sun-Sentinel's Ira Winderman touched on a few transaction-related topics in today's Heat mailmag. Here are the details:
- Winderman thinks Mike James is worth considering as a backup point guard, but warns that his last stint with the Heat didn't go well, and points out that he may not get much playing time in Miami competing for minutes with Mario Chalmers and Norris Cole.
- There is a distinct possibility that players who went overseas during the lockout, such as guard Chris Quinn, could be back in time for the playoffs.
- Winderman does not believe the Heat will make a major trade before the deadline. Rather, he views it as more likely that they'll try to find help among the players who may be bought out in the final months of the regular season.
