If Marbury is waived, the Heat would be first in position to make a waiver claim, because of its league-worst 2007-08 record. Of course, lacking the cap space or financial interest in such a move, the Heat, like each of the other 28 remaining teams, would have to wait until Marbury clears waivers.

Adding Marbury in free agency would mean also remaining on the hook for Banks' three remaining seasons, as well as having four point guards in camp, when counting Marbury, Banks, Mario Chalmers and Chris Quinn.

Common sense would say that if Marbury truly wants to regain his stature, the Heat would be the most logical landing point. Where else, perhaps beyond Indiana, would he have as solid a chance to emerge as an opening-night starter?

You tricked me there...

It would be sweet if the Heat got him, If they got him I'm pretty sure they'll be in the playoffs and even in the Top 6.

I think they could be maybe one of the best in the east if they pick him up and if Beasley isn't a bust....Although im not sure about their new head coach....pat riley should have stayed imo..

(Marbury)/Mario Chalmers/Marcus
Wade/Cook
Marion/Dorell
Beasley/Haslem
Magloire/Blount

Yeah I think he can contribute a lot for Miami, he certainly would not be a bad pickup for them.

I have a questions.

If Knicks waive Marbury, Miami gets the first bite at him because they were the worst team? And do they have to match his old salary or is he a fa?

Cause i heard someone saying that Miami coulnd afford him because they have not enough cap to offer him the money that he wants.

If Marbury is waived, he is a free agent once everything clears up. I'm pretty sure he can negotiate with any team and they didn't have to be the worst team to be the first to reach out to him. Yeah I think Miami would have some salary restrictions if Marbury wants a big contract, maybe he won't ask for a lot :) lol, doubt it though.

The way Miami likes to scoop up reject players from other teams, they're quickly turning into the Clippers East.

Marbury is an upgrade from any of their PGs..

^ Doesn't mean anything. He will play about 15 games and then spend the rest of the time being grumpy. Teams need to learn to stay away from this fool, he is an instant chemistry killer. No good can come out of him.

Yeah, if I was trying to properly develop a talented rookie with potential character issues, Marbury is EXACTLY the player I'd want hanging around my team.

There is no way Pat Riley is this stupid.

Stephon Marbury may be in shape physically to join the Knicks on the court, but the Knicks might finally be ready mentally to part ways with their chaotic point guard.

The Knicks are preparing to put Marbury on waivers by the end of the week, several sources with knowledge of the situation told Newsday. The team must await the go-ahead from Madison Square Garden chairman James Dolan, however, because it would involve eating another large chunk of money in a buyout, Newsday reported.

Trying to make a good impression, Stephon Marbury showed up at new coach Mike D'Antoni's news conference in May.

Marbury is entering the final year of his contract, worth $21.9 million.

Once Marbury clears waivers and a buyout is agreed upon, he would be free to sign with any team. Reports in Newsday and the South Florida media have mentioned the Miami Heat, who are in need of a point guard, as having interest.

According to Newsday, Marbury has recovered from January's left ankle surgery, which was needed to remove bone spurs, and has worked out all summer in Southern California, trimming his weight to 200 pounds.

He did not join the other Knicks veterans for scrimmages at the team's training center until Monday, even though the informal workouts had been going on since last week.
