I just don't get it. Why go after Bobby Jones? A player who's been "waived" by the Knicks? Don't get me wrong. The Knicks DO have a lot of talented players on their team.(Crawford, Robinson, Richardson) just to name a few. However. WHY aren't the Heat at least TRYING to pursue Ben Gordon of the Chicago Bulls? He's a Good backup to Dywane Wade and would make a GREAT starting PG. I just don't get this one. I understand they want to give "Wright" a chance. But this Jones signing just doesn't make sense to me.

Um, because Gordon wants about $13 million per, and we don't have the cap space. And, that would be seriously overpaying for a streaky shooting (shoot-first), sixth man.
