Heat Will Pursue Perkins

More reason to want to crush Miami in the playoffs.  We already have to see Eddie House in a Heat uniform, now they want another piece of our team.

One league source said the Miami Heat are expected to make a run at Boston Celtics center Kendrick Perkins(notes) after he becomes a free agent this summer, even though the Heat will be limited with what they can offer.

Perkins would be just the kind of guy that would fill in their gaping hole in the middle.  He doesn't need shots and he can change a game defensively.  Not to mention the fact that he's about the best Dwight Howard defender out there.

Still, I think the Celtics will be happy to match or beat most offers, especially if a team like the Heat only has the Mid Level Exception (or whatever the equivalent will be in the new CBA) to offer.

I don't know about you, but Perkins looks better to me than he did for half of last year - which is further proof that he wasn't 100% healthy last year.  He picked a good time to get healthy too.  I'm sure he's going to cash in this offseason but I'm also pretty sure he'll do it in Boston.
