March 15’s 3 p.m. trade deadline passed without the Miami Heat making any swaps, but that doesn’t mean the Heat won’t tinker with a roster that has now gone 4-4 since the All-Star break.

  • With New Orleans Hornets center Chris Kaman staying in Louisiana for now, Yahoo! Sports’ Adrian Wojnarowski listed Miami along with Boston and San Antonio as potential suitors should the Hornets buy out Kaman’s contract. It is still unknown whether David Stern – currently acting as the team’s owner – would allow the 2010 All-Star to join the contending team of his choice.
  • Wojnarowski said that Boston Celtics center Jermaine O’Neal would like to return to the Heat if the Celtics buy out his expiring contract. But Danny Ainge probably wouldn’t buy out O’Neal’s contract if he thought the six-time All-Star would come back to Miami, Wojnarowski reported. The Palm Beach Post’s Ethan J. Skolnick said that the Heat have mild interest in O’Neal.
