This went unnoticed in Winderman's Sunday column....

I think Ruben Patterson would be a very interesting addition...he can be that defender we could use for guys like Billups and Hamilton.

MENTIONING MIAMI: Trail Blazers forward Ruben Patterson not only thinks Portland should make a trade but also has a destination in mind for himself. Of Thursday's impending trading deadline, the 30-year-old defensive specialist said, "The team needs to make a deal. There are a lot of guys who are unhappy here." The 6-foot-5 veteran then enlisted for a trip to the Heat. "They need a defender," he said. "If I went there, they would see a new Ruben Patterson. Ah man, that would be lovely. They could use me." Portland is overloaded at small forward, with Patterson, Darius Miles, Travis Outlaw, Viktor Khryapa and Sergei Monia. Patterson earns $6.3 million this season, with a player option for $6.8 million next season. In exchange, the Blazers are seeking depth at power forward and a shooter with height.

Riley said in today's Sun Sentinel...he doesn't see it happening. He knows what he can get out of this team when they play at their top level.

Well...maybe he doesn't want to show his hand...

But Patterson is a top notch defender capable of lock down performances ala Bruce Bowen.

Riley would say, yeah we are interested If they were. I doubt we see a trade. We haven't even heards talk of a trade. Isn't the deadline tommorow?

Uh, what do we give up? Doleac? Wright (waaaay overpaying)? Simien (ditto). Fact of the matter is this roster is pretty set except for subtle, subtle moves.

I'd love Patterson but the only way you can match up salaries is if Posey or Walker is in the deal, and obviously thats not happening. The only way he gets on the Heat roster is if he talks his way into a buyout, which is unlikely.

The deal can happen with Doleac and a 1st round pick as per Ira Winderman on with fat hank.

Unfortunately hes an idiot. He needs to read the rules on how trade exceptions can be used.

Explain.

Does Ruben Patterson make that much? Doesn't he fit with Doleac's salary?

Salaries must be within 125%. Ruben pulls in $6,353,200, and Doleac $2,640,000. The Heat does have a 1.9 mil trade exception it got during the Malik Allen trade. But a trade exception cannot be used in addition to a players salary to trade for a larger salary. It can only be used to aquire a player who makes 2 mil or less.

Damn...I didn't think Ruben Patterson made that much...

The ESPN trade machine nixes the deal....

The only useful players that the Heat can get are two guys that ain't going anywhere...Mike James, and Mo Pete.

the Heat are missing a good defender like him, he would lock up the finals for the Heat but they aren't getting him. they will beat the Pistons anyway

Dude....when Shaq retires, you do know that we then gain a massive cap bonanza...right?

The window for the Heat stays open as long as Wade is in Uniform.

Agreed. With Shaq gone one year (hopefully not too soon), we will have $$$ to get at least two good players.

And they're going to sign Lebron James or Chris Bosh right? Or mabey Nowitzki will opt out and run over to Orlando begging to play for less money. Its nice to have hope, but noone will come to Orlando.

While....when Shaq retires...all of those stars WOULD come to Miami to play for the same money or more money to play with Wade.

That is the key...when Shaq retires...the Heat will be able to offer a max contract to a star.

not to mention NO other team could pay him more than Miami because of the way the league is set up.

The NBA is set up to keep the stars you draft in house. The only time you see someone leave is if they are stuck in a dump like Orlando and have a chance to go to a real city. All the stars from the '07 draft are staying. There may be an outside chance someone whos not really worth a max deal like Josh Howard or Hinrich will bolt if offered one.
