Enerbee-Bottle-WF-124x300“That would be my prediction,” Ethan Skolnick said on his radio show Monday. “I don’t have strong conviction about it but after yesterday I just think he’s gonna be wooed by the Mark Cuban pitch in this case, provided Cuban shows up and I think max Dallas. I think Miami is looking for an out not to have to pay him and keep him, right?

“Pat’s saying that he’s their priority but I think ultimately is this an issue we really need to deal with?

“Trust me, if Hassan signs elsewhere it wouldn’t be because Miami lost him,” ESPN’s Michael Wallace added. “They have opened the door, left it unlocked for him to walk out if that’s the case. I still say that he stays because I think I’m calling Hassan’s bluff more so than Riley’s bluff. Slightly.”
