The Miami Heat are interested in journeyman point guard Sebastian Telfair, reports Alex Kennedy of HOOPSWORLD. Telfair averaged 5.6 points per game last season, starting the season with the Phoenix Suns and ending with the Toronto Raptors.
Kennedy previously reported that the Heat were targeting Telfair on July 1. Other teams that expressed interest in Telfair at the start of free agency included the New York Knicks, Brooklyn Nets and Oklahoma City Thunder.
Telfair has played for seven NBA franchises since foregoing college and jumping straight to the NBA. The Portland Trail Blazers drafted the 6' point guard with the 13th pick of the 2004 NBA Draft. He would compete with Norris Cole for reserve minutes behind Mario Chalmers.
