Heat Eyeing Chris Andersen

FRIDAY, 8:04am: The Heat have inquired on Andersen, but have yet to schedule a visit or make an offer to the Birdman, according to Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald. Andersen is "very interested" in the Heat, says Jackson.

THURSDAY, 6:02pm: Earlier today we mentioned that the Heat were interested in former Knicks backup center Josh Harrellson, but it appears they also have their sights on someone with a bit more experience. According to Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel, Miami is also intrigued with the possibility of adding free agent forward Chris Andersen

Amnestied by the Nuggets earlier this offseason, Andersen has reportedly bypassed a lucrative offer overseas and is willing to take the veteran's minimum with Miami. No offer has been made at this time, and at 34 years old, coming off a season in which he played just 32 games, it's unclear as to how much the 10-year veteran has left. Andersen's off the court issues which have lingered in recent months, which may also help explain why no team has yet to sign him.

With or with out the birdman barring no injuries ……and now that Lebron has stepped up at the same exact age that jordan won his first championship….i can see the heat in the next 5 years winning another 3!! There are no guarantees in this world….but think how easy it will now be for ray allen and rashard lewis….all they have to do is spot up and let bron bron and wade penetrate and kick out …and now with definate consistent 3 point shooting which was up and down last year…. the only threats to me are the lakers and okc……but i give the heat the edge big time and see lebron going down right up close to the same level as M.J. If the heat rip 3 more in a row he will then go down as one of the top two players ever….definately the most physically gifted athlete we have ever seen….bar none!! if you are a hater…..then you are missing one of the greatest you will ever see…just because you are jealous that he moved to south beach and you didn’t…get over it….if you had a choice to stay in cleveland or live in miami and win…..who in the hell wouldn’t go? time to quit the hating and start participating

If they get Anderson, it’ll be like the ’96-’98 Bulls. They’ll get an eccentric rebounder ala-Rodman. Don’t know if it will work out for the Heat as well.
