Southeast Notes: Heat, Stevenson, Henderson

Earlier today, we learned that the Heat are still interested in free agent point guard Sebastian Telfair.  Telfair would help shore up Miami's depth chart, but they're hardly alone in their pursuit of the Brooklyn native.  Both the Knicks and Thunder have been tied to Telfair this summer and it seems likely that the guard will land somewhere in the next couple of weeks.  Here's more on Miami and the rest of the Southeast Division..

  • Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel figures that the Heat should be able to convince most of their remaining targets to take the minimum, so he doesn't foresee the team using its mini mid-level exception. 
  • DeShawn Stevenson took to Twitter to lobby for an opportunity to play for the Heat this season, but that could be a poor fit for a number of reasons.  Jeff Caplan of recaps the most notable reason of all – Stevenson's previous animosity with two-time MVP LeBron James
  • Gerald Henderson met with reporters in Charlotte today, expressing his excitement about the Bobcats' offseason moves and explaining why he convinced the team to give him less money in exchange for a player option in the final year of his new contract. "I’ve improved every year and I believe I’ll continue to improve," Henderson said. "I have that much confidence in myself." Rick Bonnell of the Charlotte Observer has more.
