Amid reports that the Miami Heat are interested in him, John Lucas, called into ESPN Radios’ Carmen, Jurko & Harry to talk about his summer as a free agent:
(Silvy of ESPN Radio’s “Waddly & Silvy” conducted the interview)
You may sign with the Heat?
It’s one of the teams that interested in me. I’m just taking the time, looking at everything and what is going to be the best situation for me.
Would that feel weird for you at all, or is it just something where they have the best offer and the most playing time – that’s what you got to do?
Yeah and that’s how I’m really looking at it. I want to go somewhere where I can contribute and go in there and basically play and bring something to the team.
What about the Bulls – have they expressed interest?
Yeah they are one of the teams, but you know with everything that’s going on now – I heard that they re-signed Kirk, which is a good move for them – but I’ll sit down and talk with my team and see what happens.
Did Lebron reach out to you?
No not at all. This is strictly just the teams reaching out to me showing interest – it’s coming from management. And they’re not just the only team, there’s a couple other teams, too. I’ll definitely meet with teams while I’m watching my little brother play for Houston in the summer league.
There you have it, it looks as though we have seen the last of John Lucas III in Chicago.
