If the Heat are looking for a veteran guard this offseason, they should have no trouble finding one. It may come this year or it may come sometime in the next few, but LeBron James and company are more than likely going to win a championship. That’s common knowledge and it makes Miami a preferred destination for soon-to-be free agents. Jason Terry is one of them.
“No question, they need a veteran shooter, a guy who can score besides LeBron (James) and (Dwyane Wade), and they know they can count on,” Terry told FoxSports.com’s Chris Tomasson when asked if he would consider going to Miami. “I’m a guy that’s been in this league 13 years, (averaging) 15 points a night, easy. Off the bench or the starting lineup, it doesn’t matter. So I think I’d be an asset to them.”
“They didn’t even lowball me,” Terry said. “They didn’t want to bring anybody back from last year… (Team officials said they’re) clearing the cap as low and we can and this summer we’re going after Dwight Howard, which hasn’t happened, and Deron Williams, which they still have an opportunity.”
If the Heat are looking for a veteran presence in their back court next season, they already have open offers from Steve Nash and Terry. Either of those players would seemingly be a fit in Miami. Adding LeBron James and Chris Bosh may have made people despise the Heat, but sometimes the pros outweigh the cons.
