  • ASK IRA: Is fear of losing Whiteside in 2016 rational?

    ASK IRA: Is fear of losing Whiteside in 2016 rational?
    Q: I can't help it. I feel the need for trading. Fresh from the lottery I read someone comment that the Knicks will be looking to trade their No. 4 pick in the draft. Does the following make sense, if this is true: Miami sends Hassan Whiteside to New York in exchange for the pick. Miami drafts Justice Winslow with the fourth and Myles Turner with the 10th (or if they get lucky Willie Cauley-Stein). There would be substantial savings in 2016-2017 if Whiteside's potential salary is passed on to the Knicks. Turner could possibly be in the same league as Whiteside. A sharpshooter small forward/shooting guard would be added and a long shot would be drafted with the 40th pick. All that Pat Riley has to do is follow the script and we'll be all right next year. Of course it would help if Phil Jackson acquiesces to the deal, Myles Turner lives up to expectations. Winslow develops into a good defender and injuries are a thing of the past.  I'll leave it up to Pat to decide who gets cut in camp. What say you? Thanks for your comments. -- Joaquin Gomez.

    We are a month shy of a year since Pat Riley issued his challenge to the best basketball player on the planet: Stay and make the Miami Heat into "a generational team." A month after Riley attempted to sell legacy, LeBron James was gone. In the...

    ASK IRA: Does Wade's next contract hold key to Heat future?

    ASK IRA: Does Wade's next contract hold key to Heat future?
    Q: Pat Riley's moves with Hassan Whiteside and Goran Dragic were brilliant, but I fear we're locked in a good-but-not-great period, cap-limited from pursuing a free-agent superstar. -- Daniel. A: Actually, Dwyane Wade will make that decision, based on...

    ASK IRA: Could Heat be in play for restricted free agents?

    ASK IRA: Could Heat be in play for restricted free agents?
    Q: This is probably a pipe dream, but If Luol Deng opts out, I would love to replace him with Khris Middleton. Since Middleton is a restricted free agent, if Milwaukee is reluctant to pay him (a la Brandon Knight), would a sign-and-trade be considered...
