Sorry, I just can't resist. Floodgates open. Let 'er rip.

Antoine Walker is going to be a free agent soon. We need power forward help. Whaddayasay? 3rd time's a charm?

MEMPHIS, Tenn. - Antoine Walker found himself in a familiar stance Sunday, offering farewells while surrounded by Heat players.

Dealt 14 months ago by the Heat to the Timberwolves, and then traded in the offseason by Minnesota to Memphis, Walker said Sunday he expects to receive a buyout today from the Grizzlies.

"Hopefully, with this buyout, the opportunity is going to be there for me," Walker said before Sunday's game against the Heat. "Maybe I can go and talk to a few teams and hopefully move on to a better situation very soon."

After being caught in youth movements on his last two teams, Walker said showing, at 32, that he still can be a contributor is his goal.

"I just want to play," he said. "I've been fortunate enough to make a lot of money in this league, but I want to play the games."
