Rafer Alston has agreed to a contract buyout with the Nets.The C's could make a run at Rafer or they could also sign Arroyo if/when Rafer signs with the Heat and Arroyo gets released (as has been rumored). Neither players are all that good, but you need to have some point guard insurance on your team in case Rondo gets injured after the point where the playoff eligibilty deadline has passed. Some have speculated that Tyronne Lue is that insurance guy, but in my opinion Alston and Arroyo are much better players. JR 1/05/2010 03:52:00 PM Tweet Edit
Sources told Yahoo! Sports on Tuesday that the Heat are the early favorite to sign the point guard after he clears waivers.
The Cavaliers and a number of other clubs are expected to show interest in Alston as well.
