Is Smush Parker's NBA Career Over?
Assuming then Parker is on the block... who's going to take him? He makes $2.5 million this year, and I hardly imagine many league personnel folks would grade him as a better option at that price than vet-minimum guys like Mike Wilks or Eddie Gill. The odd price tag on Smush makes him hard to trade, too -- basically only rookie scale kids and below-average veterans make similar dollars, and few teams have both luxury tax space and a need at the point (which limits the use of cap exceptions).
For instance, Cleveland would never blow anything on Parker when they have to pay his salary in luxury tax, too. Ditto Boston. Even future cap flexibility (a la Friday's Charlotte-Detroit deal) will be a tough sell considering Miami would have to be eager enough to drop Smush and get something in return while compromising an already disastrous cap outlook. In short, the best way for Miami to get past this is just to cut Smush. They could spend the next two months trying to shave him off the roster; there are much bigger problems for Riley to tackle.
If they do cut him free, will someone take the plunge and blow a million (or two if they're over the tax) on Smush? Again, Wilks and Gill and several other options exist; only Washington looks desperate to add point guard help right now. I'm not sure there's a market in this league for Smush. I'd guess he'd get a flyer from someone at some point, but don't expect him to see many minutes in the NBA this year, where ever he ends up.
