Heat might let Marion's contract expire
WOW ... interesting rumour I just read in the Chicago Tribune. Sam Smith (take what he says with a grain of salt) said that Riley will likely let Marion's contract expire and not re-sign him instead going after a big man. Players that he's rumoured to be leaning towards are Brand or get this ...... Eddy Curry. :haha:

Riley needs a big post-up presence. He doesn't really see the game otherwise, and the truth is, rarely has a team succeeded without one.
So what about Eddy Curry?
Riley isn't patient enough to wait two years for his team to develop, and he needs a big center. Curry could be that player.
