Source: Mike Bibby headed to Heat

Mike Bibby and the Washington Wizards have agreed to terms on a buyout.

In a stunning move, Bibby, whom the Wizards acquired from Atlanta last week in a trade for Kirk Hinrich, gave up his entire salary for next season. The 32-year-old point guard had one year and $6.2 million left on his deal.


"He sacrificed some money in order to win a championship," said David Falk, Bibby's agent. "Once you're past 10, 11 years in the league, you want to be in a situation where you can win. He's got some attractive options open to him."

Bibby is eager to sign with a title-contending team after clearing waivers, and sources say the Los Angeles Lakers, Boston Celtics, Miami Heat and Portland Trail Blazers are interested in him.


Bibby will clear waivers on Wednesday. While Falk said Bibby has not made a decision yet about which team he will join, one source close to the situation said he's headed to Miami.

The source also said Miami is the front-runner for Troy Murphy. The Heat will have to cut as many players as they sign, and the source said Carlos Arroyo and Jamaal Magloire are the likeliest candidates.

However, Falk, who doesn't represent Murphy, maintained that nothing has been agreed to.

"I've been in touch with six or seven of the top teams," he said. "Nothing can be done until he clears waivers."

For Washington, the deal is a sweetheart one that will knock next season's payroll down to roughly $38 million, which is $20 million below the current salary cap.

Malgloire isnt getting mins with the Heat who's centers are terrible this year. I doubt he can do anything anymore.


Foster might be the starter if he played for Miami

Damn, the Wiz got a sweet deal on that buyout. That trade, which was already a good deal for them, is now a steal.

So where does that leave TJ?? No buyout?

Or would SA possibly have an interest with Parker getting hurt? I'm not sure if they have the room or money to do anything though. Or that they would even want him for that matter.

Offensively he's a nice fit, defensively he is not a fit anywhere

I don't think he'd be a good fit with Miami because he can't shoot. I've heard Portland for him, as he's an upgrade over Patty Mills as the backup to Andre Miller.

Miami makes the most sense.

I've always liked Bibby, however with Miami, I don't want him getting his ring there.

I mean this literally, not emphasized for effect, not off the cuff.....

Mike Bibby and Troy Murphy are THE WORST DEFENDERS, AT THEIR POSITIONS, IN THE ENTIRE LEAGUE.

Bibby is a good fit as he is the perfect kick out guy as a point for Lebron and Wade. His defense will be masked unless if he's against Derrick Rose.

Murph will come off the bench and probably shouldn't be in the same time as Bibby.

What are Bibby and Murphy going to bring that the Heat don't already have? Do they really need more shooters to space the floor? Bosh is already allergic of the paint and soft like Charmin. Then you have James Jones, Eddie House, Chalmers, etc.

The rest of the contenders aren't impressed by these additions.

Defense wise:

Chalmers>>>>>> Bibby

Jauwan Howard>>>>>>>>>>> Murphy

Bibby>>>>> Chalmers

Murphy>>> Jauwan Howard

I'd take Chalmers over Bibby. If Bibby isn't hitting his shots, he's useless. At least Chalmers is a good defender.

Again, I question if Murphy is really that much of an improvement, or even a needed addition. He can easily be taken out of his game, as we saw over the years. For example, I remember one game in Utah he hit 6(?) threes in the first half. Utah simply adjusted by running him off the three point line and he made 0 in the second half.

Murphy is a better fit in Boston backing up Garnett.

Garnett is a defensive stopper at PF for them and Murphy would do well for them coming off the bench and giving them an offensive spark.

Bosh isn't much of a defender and isn't aggressive like Murphy.

Bibby, however, is the perfect fit for Miami.

but we didnt have LBJ and Wade to take the pressure of Murphy. He will get a lot of wide open looks.

I'm sorry but Mario Chalmers is terrible. They need a point guard, and Bibby fits the bill for now.

Murph is a nice third big for that team, if he can hit his open shots and get defensive boards.

And Eddie House becomes the 10th man for the 10th team.

mike bibby won't solve anything. He makes their glaring weaknesses worse

Why all the emphasis on defensive needs for Miami? I don't really see any. They have the lowest opponent FG% in the league(42%) and they're at 95ppg for opponents, which is 5th. Their problem is losing close games, and at the worst getting two great shooters to come off the bench will have a neutral effect on that. In all likelihood both signings will be great additions for the Heat, who will have a bench of awesome shooters (Bibby, Miller, Jones, House, Murphy) and solid bigs (Udonis, Z, Damp). Miami's looking good.
