Q: With all this concern at point guard, do you think we will have a Carlos Arroyo comeback to the Heat? — Miguel.
A: I have to admit, I found the Heat’s treatment of Carlos somewhat confounding over the years.

At this time last year, the Miami HEAT were hardly natural at moving without the ball. But over the course of the season, players used to having the ball in their hands adapted better than you might think, with a little push from the coaching staff. HEAT.com looks at the upward trending off-ball movement with numbers and video.
Rookie guard Norris Cole already has impressed Dwyane Wade by getting the ball to where the team’s best scorers are most comfortable.

At various times during Monday’s media day, Heat players were asked about Chris Paul’s impending move to the Clippers, as well as the Clippers’ failed bid to land Paul.
It also was a day when Heat players were united in their desire to add Chauncey Billups, only to learn before they left AmericanAirlines Arena that Billups had unexpectedly been claimed off waivers by the guard...
