Heat was offered Evan Turner before Indiana

The Heat was offered Evan Turner before Indiana. All they had to give up was Haslem, who wasnít even playing. Haslem, like Danny Granger, has spent his basketball life with only one team, and he talks a lot about the Heat way and family. The Heat didnít make the trade at least in part because it didnít like how the message contradicted what it was selling James when it met him, or what it might do to the locker room. And Haslem, the old pro who has twice given up in excess of $10 million to stay in Miami, never once said a negative syllable from the bench, telling anyone who would listen that a time would come when he would be needed. And, as the Pacers continue an uncommon short-circuiting since the Granger-for-Turner trade, that was the undersized Haslem pushing around Roy Hibbert, the giant who called his teammates selfish, in the most recent game to help decide the Eastern Conferenceís best team. -
