Heat Express Interest In Shannon Brown, Kwame Brown
Mark Bartelstein, who represents free agents Kwame Brown and Shannon Brown, said Tuesday night he has had in-depth discussions with Miami about both.
The Heat desperately need a center, and Kwame Brown could fit the bill, having averaged 7.9 points and 6.8 rebounds for Charlotte last season.
"We've talked to Miami quite a bit," Bartelstein said. "We're going through the process and hope to make a decision in the next few days… Miami's a great team and a championship contender and he's got the potential (to help)."
Bartelstein said he's also talked to Heat president Pat Riley about Shannon Brown, a shooting guard who averaged 8.7 points last season for the Lakers.
"We've talked about him with Pat," Bartelstein said of Shannon Brown, who was LeBron James' teammate in Cleveland from 2006 to 2008. "They're looking for wings. Teaming with LeBron and Dwyane (Wade) would be incredible. (Shannon Brown) is very athletic. They (the Heat) like him."
