Here’s our Saturday morning look at the Southeast Division..
- In today’s mailbag, a reader asks Ira Winderman of the Sun Sentinel if it would make sense for the Heat to start Joel Anthony in order to audition him to other clubs for a possible trade. That wouldn’t make sense, Winderman argues, because the greater issue is not exposure, but rather the additional season Joel has on his contract beyond this one. The forward is viewed as more of a cap liability than an on-court liability, though his defense could potentially help a team on the playoff fringe.
- Wizards big man Kevin Seraphin says that he’s still working to find his rhythm, writes Michael Lee of the Washington Post. Seraphin will be a restricted free agent following the 2013/14 season. Washington can tender him a qualifying offer at just $3.89MM.
- Dwyane Wade says the attitude of Heat offseason pickup Greg Oden is improving, writes Joseph Goodman of the Miami Herald.
