Report: Miami Heat is shopping for a point guard
Know what the Miami Heat could use? Besides a little publicity?
A point guard. The defense has played well, limiting the first three opponents to an average of 88 points a game for the 2-1 Heat, but ESPN's Ric Bucher reports that Pat Riley is in the market for a point guard to jump start the offense with Mike Miller out until January.
According to Bucher: "Two different team executives said they expect the Heat to dangle $3 million and second-year PG Mario Chalmers to a lottery-bound team looking to shed the long-term contract of a mid-priced spot-up shooting PG. Riley's objective is to find another shooter to space the floor, a la B.J. Armstrong or John Paxson in their Chicago days playing alongside Michael Jordan and Scottie Pippen."
