Turiaf close to deal with Heat

According to Yahoo! Sports, Ronny Turiaf is close to a deal with the Miami Heat. Turiaf's agent Marc Bartelstein says they are "working hard" to get the deal done. The terms of the contract are not yet known. Turiaf was previously on the final year of the 17 million dollar deal he signed with Golden State. Turiaf averaged 4.3 million over the four years of the previous contract.

It doesn't look like the Knicks looked at all at obtaining Turiaf. But they benefit them in their division as it keeps a big man out of Boston. The Celtics front court has had to deal with several serious injuries over the course of the season. Most recently, Jermaine O'Neal was lost for the remainder of the season due to a wrist injury. They have also lost Jeff Green, and Chris Wilcox to season ending heart surgeries.

New York trails the Celtics in the division by 2.5 games.
