According to the rumors on www.foxsports.com, the Heat, Sixers, and Clippers have discussed a trade that would send Maggette to the Heat. This would be a terrific move by the Heat! You know coaches have denied trade rumors before and they end up happening.

Mike Dunleavy dismissed as nonsense the latest trade rumor regarding Corey Maggette. This one is a three-way deal involving the Clippers, Miami Heat and Philadelphia 76ers. It has Maggette going to the Heat, Miami trading forward James Posey and his expiring contract to the 76ers, with the Clippers receiving Philadelphia?s long-range shooting specialist Kyle Korver, who has Southern California roots.

Posted January 24, by Ben Maller

P.S. There are several rumors abound about Pau Gasol going to the Bulls for Ben Gordon, former Heat forward P.J. Brown, and a first round pick. The Bulls would be a huge juggernaut in the Eastern Conference and would help the East gain an AlL-Star back after the East lost A.I. in the Sixers-Nuggets trade.

Giving up Ben Gordon for Gasol wouldn't be such a great move, but that's just me. As for Maggette...Eh. Not really interested. He's pretty inconsistent himself and isn't a great defender. I think I'd rather keep the roster as-is seeing how they're now just getting healthy.

Getting Maggette would be an awesome move for the Heat. He'd be the efficient 3rd scorer that we haven't had since EJ left.

Since Kapono and Walker have emerged, I really don't wanna do any trades anymore.

Korver, Iguodala, Carney, Miller hopefully...solid draft and this team can make the playoffs.

Let's not forget Jason Williams. He's looked his best since coming to Miami in the last week or 2. Kapono is killing it though. I really hope they hold a spot for him in the 3 point shootout. If not I'm going to have to hurt people.

Obviously, we still need some help putting games out of reach with more scoring. Maggette would solve that problem.

Gasol is the best player on the league that no one has heard of YET. He's a walking double-double with defense, offense, range, leadership and heart

a backcourt of him and Wallace makes me cringe

Leadership and heart, huh? Visit that Memphis locker room regularly, do ya? I wouldn't say no one has heard of Gasol. He's a former All-Star and Rookie of the Year. He's good, obviously he's been slowed down due to injury this year, and maybe he doesn't get as much exposure because he plays for the Grizzlies, but people know Pau Gasol. He's a top 20-25 player in the league when healthy.

That would require an identity change: Memphis Grizzlies South :shifty

Is that confirmed? I've heard rumors of EJ being bought out and possibly returning, but did it actually happen? Wouldn't be a bad pick-up. I mean, can't be any worse than Antoine or freakin' Robert Hite.
