The Heat are reportedly interested in Pacers point guard Jamaal Tinsley, who has been stuck in limbo as Larry Bird tries to unload him.
Miami currently has Marcus Banks, Mario Chalmers, Chris Quinn and Shaun Livingston under contract at point guard.
Obviously not a lot of content and it makes little sense when you consider that they just signed Livingston. It does make me think that Larry wasn't lying when he said a few teams were still interested in Tinsley. I would think that Denver, GS, the Clippers and now perhaps Miami have some degree of interest that may continue to grow as the season starts.
I assume that to get any player for Tinsley that can contribute we'll have to sweeten the deal or take on a bad contract in return. The question is what do you want? Would you rather just dump Tinsely for lower impact players like the proposed Denver trade, or would you rather see the team sweeten the deal a little to obtain Haslem, Martin, Harrington, or Thomas all of who are somewhat expendable on their perspective teams?
