Miami Heat Notes, Quotes 2009-11-22

Miami Heat Notes, Quotes 2009-11-22--As one of the league's prime 2010 free agent targets, Raptors forward Chris Bosh found Friday his turn to be asked about the lure of the Heat's cap cash.

"It's all a part of the business. I understand it's going to happen," he said of the questioning. "I think LeBron kind of said it best. You have to be respectful of my teammates and make sure I focus on this season, no matter what happens."

LeBron James reiterated during last week's visit to AmericanAirlines Arena that he did not plan to discuss his impending free agency for the balance of the season. Bosh reiterated Friday that he "doesn't know" how his situation will play out.

"I expect to keep it dormant like it's been," he said.

For his part, Heat guard Dwyane Wade said he did not come north of the border to recruit.

"The city sells itself. It's self-explanatory," he said. "I just have to make sure I sell the team and make sure the team and teammates around me are good and we are getting the most out of individuals that we can and that will make others want to come and be a part of it."

--In advance of the Heat's visit, Toronto F Chris Bosh was asked by AOL's Fanhouse about the possibilities of playing alongside Wade.

"Anything is possible, I guess," Bosh said. "I guess that seems to be an attractive place, you know, playing with Dwyane and playing in Miami and everything. I guess if they had the right chemistry, the right guys, that they could persuade guys to get there. But we'll see."

Unlike the Heat with Wade, the Raptors bypassed even offering Bosh the opportunity to sign an extension, appreciating that he would want to see how this season plays out in Toronto.

--Despite being linked to a late round of negotiations with Allen Iverson, the Heat denied reports that it had made a pitch for the recently released guard.

"The Iverson rumors are just that, rumors," a team spokesman said. "There's nothing to it."

QUOTE TO NOTE: "We have to prove that our identity actually means something deep to us. One way or another, we're going to get back to that identity." -- Coach Erik Spoelstra, furious with his team's defense, after the Heat allowed 120 points to the Raptors, including 43 in the second quarter.
