SHAQ ON THE MOVE?
Shaquille O'Neal is prepared for the Miami Heat to trade him, a confidant of the 14-time All-Star center told The Associated Press on Tuesday night. O'Neal's associate, who spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to reveal anything publicly, indicated a move could be imminent, as did media reports. The Miami Herald reported earlier Tuesday that the Heat are in ``serious and ongoing'' trade negotiations with the Phoenix Suns.

Gasol was acquired last Friday from Memphis for a package including Kwame Brown and two first round picks.

SPEAKING
``I saw his foot before the game and I was like, 'Man, I'd never seen nothing like that before.' He said it's not going to bother him. He's going to coach like he always does.'' - Philadelphia's Rodney Carney about coach Maurice Cheeks, who has been battling gout on his left foot. Cheeks coached his second game in two nights wearing only one shoe - on his right foot - because of the condition. His left foot was grotesquely swollen, he walked with a limp and only briefly paced on the sideline.
