Heat Notes: Chalmers, Miller, Allen, Lewis

At 10-3, the defending champion Miami Heat own the best record in the Eastern Conference. Here are the latest notes and rumors surrounding the team on Sunday afternoon:

  • Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel wonders whether the Heat will pick up the $4MM option on guard Mario Chalmers' contract for next season.
  • Winderman also notes that Mike Miller is likely to be waived at some point using the amnesty clause.
  • Winderman writes that the Heat's decision to use Ray Allen as a sixth man is paying off for the team.
  • Signed for the veteran's minimum, it was unknown what kind of contribution Rashard Lewis would make to the Heat, but Winderman says that he has been a valuable part of Miami's rotation thus far.
  • Jeff Zillgett of USA Today notes that Udonis Haslem is the first undrafted player ever to lead his team in rebounding this season.
