Miami Heat had a fantastic run at the last NBA season, becoming Eastern Conference champions and getting into the finals. That campaign was a big surprise for many people. This season, however, didn't start in the same way for the Heat, although they progressed recently and even managed to six straight wins to improve their record.
Still, Miami would be considering making movements before the trade deadline on March 25 to strengthen their roster. Last year, they did the same by bringing in Andre Iguodala and Jay Crowder, who then were important for the impressive playoff run which ended in the finals against Los Angeles Lakers.
They had to deal with several injuries from different players so far, and the 18-18 record doesn't seem too satisfying. That's why the Heat would be interested in signing a big name to go for a great campaign once again. The arrival of any of the two potential candidates would bring experience and more quality to South Florida.
Kyle Lowry and John Wall, considered by Miami Heat
According to Tom Haberstroh from TrueHoop, the three-time NBA champions may go after Kyle Lowry or John Wall to give a boost to the current roster. This would be considered more carefully throughout the eight games the Heat will face after the All-Star break and before the trade deadline.
To go ahead with such an operation, Haberstroh also added that Miami would be offering players of the likes of Tyler Herro, Duncan Robinson or Precious Achiuwa, as well big contracts like Kelly Olynyk and Meyers Leonard to open up space for a high-paid star like Lowry or Wall.
These two point-guards have plenty of experience and would turn the Heat into an even more dangerous team. Toronto Raptors' player, who has an average of 18 points per game this season, has been linked with a potential move lately, and the Houston Rockets' guard is averaging 21 PPG while his team is struggling at the 14th seed.
