Q: Ira, who do you think will take the last two spots the Heat have left? -- Paul, Miami. A: It is a constantly evolving decision. None of the lower-end big men have been particularly impressive, although Mickell Gladness had his defensive moments Thursday against the Clippers. Terrel Harris hardly has distanced himself, while Garrett Temple is somewhat intriguing. At the moment, I still think Josh Harrellson might get the benefit of the doubt up front based on his body of work last season with the Knicks. South Florida Sun-Sentinel

A day after the agent for Miami Heat second-round pick Justin Hamilton confirmed his client would spend the season in Europe, the agent for Terrel Harris downplayed reports linking the Heat free-agent guard to a similar outcome. "We're having ongoing talks with the Heat about Terrel," agent Brian Elfus said Thursday. "We're looking at all possibilities." South Florida Sun-Sentinel

The Sportando website had reported that Harris had been offered to several European teams, with league play there beginning in late September, a month ahead of the NBA regular season. Harris had previously played in France and Germany before joining the Heat for his NBA rookie season on a non-guaranteed contract following the conclusion of last year's lockout. Elfus called the report of Harris possibly being close to a European deal, "rumor and innuendo. Do I think it's going to happen? I don't know." South Florida Sun-Sentinel
