It will be interetsing to see if the HEAT can regain the triumphs of last year? Personally I think they were too quiet with transfers and need improvement in certain areas.

Hi Ira:

Dorel Wright seems like he is running out of options with the Heat coaching staff. The kid seems to have a tag put on him by the coaching staff that he is not mature enough and plays out of control (tries to do too much). The Heat knew it when they drafted him that he would need three to four years to develop. Why draft him anyway? A wasted Heat pick?

Also it seems from Coach Reily's comments that Wright has mental lapses when on the court and is not a good passer. These comments may have hurt his trade value.

When do we cut the cord with him or finally let him play with the first nine players off the bench?

Can Wright make the Heat's team or will he be traded before the season opener?

All the best!
