Heat Rumors: Liggins, Turner, Oden

February 23 at 8:40pm CDT By Zach Links

The Heat reportedly would have liked to convince Glen Davis to stay in the Sunshine State, but they ultimately watched Big Baby hook on with the Clippers instead.  Where do they go from here?  The latest out of South Beach..

  • The Heat are strongly considering signing DeAndre Liggins, who has been playing for the D-League’s Sioux Falls SkyForce, sources tell Ira Winderman of the Sun Sentinel (on Twitter). Liggins would fill the spot vacated by Roger Mason Jr. but other moves are still possible (link).  Liggins was waived by the Thunder in September after an alleged domestic incident.
  • No deadline deal affected the Heat more than the Pacers’ deal for Evan Turner, Winderman writes.  Turner definitely makes the Pacers a better team, but whether the Heat can get past the Pacers in an anticipated Eastern Conference finals matchup comes down to whether Dwyane Wade can win his matchup against Lance Stephenson.
  • Offseason pickup Greg Oden made his first-ever start for the Heat today in the absence of LeBron James and the Associated Press recapped his performance against Chicago.
