The Heat traded Anthony before the trade deadline a season ago, a transaction that neither LeBron James nor Dwyane Wade endorsed publicly and privately. “I had caught wind that a trade was a possibility,” Anthony said. “So when it happened, even though you knew it was a possibility, it still caught me by surprise just because you’re so close to the team, the organization and the city. It’s tough having played somewhere your entire career, the amount of time I had over there and all the memories. Obviously, Miami has always been home for me. I still have my place there in the offseason.” RealGM

The Heat waived Shannon Brown, who started two games, to make room on the roster. Whiteside, who spent one season collegiately at Marshall, also played in Lebanon and China last year. "We feel the upside of a 7-footer, shot-blocker, rebounder, young player was something that was too big to pass up right now," Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said. "We view him as a developmental player even though he's played professionally for three years, we still see him as a young prospect." South Florida Sun-Sentinel

Norris Cole for Dion Waiters. Beneficial for both teams. Good backup at shooting guard for the Heat, plus more and consistent minutes for Shabazz Napier. Would you go for it if you were to decide for Miami? How about if for Cavs? Is this possible? -- Frances, Philippines. A: While I don't usually address rumors (and I'm not even sure this is a rumor), I've been asked about the permutation often enough that I might as well bite. But I preface it with this: There has been absolutely no known discussion, nor even word of potential interest by either of the sides. South Florida Sun-Sentinel
