Trade Update

Faced by a 0-7 record in Preseason and the pressure on Pat Riley mounting the Heat decided to make a Roster change. Antoine Walker was traded to the Minnesota Timberwolves for Ricky Davis and Mark Blount. At first glance I'm not too surprised. Walker had fallen out with Pat Riley ages ago over his conditioning issues and once you fall out with Pat Riley thats it as far as playing for him goes. Miami didn't get a bad deal they did of the horrific Antoine Walker for Ricky Davis and that itself is a winner but the fact that Timeberwolves got rid off Mark Blount is a minor victory because blount is the worst contract in the trade. Apparently according to other News reports that Walker will be bought out and head to Boston

I never though it was possible my opinion of Mchale as a GM could get any lower but it just did. His connection with Boston has affected the trade market see the K.G deal and now he's trying to let Walker head back to Boston because of his playing connections and caddy for Pierce, Garnett and Allen is nonsense. Lets hope the commish starts something. It's all very well and good having a dress code but if you allow your GM's to have your former connections with teas over the priority of your own team then theres something wrong
