Heat Still Eyeing Walker Trade

Also part of that Miami Herald article:

The Heat also is considering adding free agent forward Antoine Walker, possibly in a sign-and-trade deal with Boston, though no agreement was imminent.

Walker visited with Riley last week, and although a straight signing of the free agent is unlikely, the Heat could package Michael Doleac, Rasual Butler and its $1.9 million trade exception to Boston in exchange for Walker. That would allow Walker to sign for a starting salary of about $6 million, and the Celtics would not have to take on much salary in return.

Doleac is in the second year of a four-year deal that pays him $2.6 million next year, and Butler is in the final year of his contract and will make about $1.5 million next season."

My Take: Umm,... no chance. This is a fantasy trade made up from the Miami perspective. Why would we even think about this? You mean we can add salary just to pick up another outside shooting front court player and another swing man? Oh goody! Please. Sorry. No dice.
