The man known as the Birdman is ready for a new location after being cut by the Denver Nuggets.

Chris Andersen would be a great addition to the Heat. He would bring great energy and athleticism to a front line that has lacked size and agility.

I know some people who read this will immediately be disgusted as Andersen is currently under investigation regarding child pornography, but for those who haven’t seen an updated version of the story….

According to multiple sources such as CBSsports.com and the Huffington Post, Andersen appears to be the victim of an extortion plot. The girl who had been sending him scantily clad photos claimed to be 21 years old, but it was discovered later that she was not. Andersen spurned her advances, but the girl and her mother told Andersen if he did not acquiesce to their demands they would take action.

That being said, it appears Andersen will not be charged. And since he is a free agent, the Heat would be wise to pick him up for cheap.

The Heat’s off-season moves thus far have been brilliant, rivaled only by the Lakers’ moves. They would be wise to act quickly on the Birdman and add another role player piece in their quest to defend their NBA Championship.
