Does anyone else think that the Heat will make a trade at the deadline this year?

 

I know it is kind of early to talk about this kind of thing, but last year they made the big move for Dragic. Does anyone see them doing something big this year?

 

I don't see them trading for a big time player like Dragic, but I could see them making a deadline deal for a critical role player that would fill a need and give us that little extra push that we need for the playoffs.

 

What are your thoughts?

Personally I really like this team. I don't think there's any huge holes. I think when they get going they can be really good. Maybe another shooter, you can always use another shooter. Someone who can knock down 3's

If there is a hole, that's it right now. Too early to have a good gauge on any kind of "big" trade imo. By the AS break, it could be a very different story. I agree with you 305, with some better chemistry/continuity, this team "as is" and healthy, should win games.

Yeah I agree that its a little early to see any real issues with the team. By the break we may find some issues with guys not playing to their potential or (fingers crossed) injuries... I think when Green gets going he can be that sniper from the 3, but he's gotta get back to game shape. TJ can also hit the 3 (but he's still a rook imo), Bosh, and Deng sometimes. I don't think Dragic is a reliable 3 pt shooter, he should focus on mid range, layups and hitting the open man. So there are potentially good 3 pt shooters on this team, but they've gotta make the shots.

McRoberts might end up getting traded to clear cap space but I think Riley will wait on that till the end of the season.  Hes got a very team friendly deal and there's no reason to be in any hurry to get rid of him.

 

Other than that I don't think anything big will go down.  Riley is going for one last hail mary this offseason......see if he can convince Durant that Dragic, Bosh, Whiteside, and Winslow are good enough to win a title.

Birdman and Deng for Batum

 

or even McRoberts and Deng for Batum

 

I like this trade idea. Especially to free up some money by getting rid of Birdman who does not have nearly as much value with Whiteside here. Plus, Deng and McRoberts have not performed up to expectations and I think Batum is also a great player. Good idea.

Despite all my complaining, I don't really think there is either. What we have is simply being underutilized. I'd say what we need is a shooter for the starting lineup and an offensive spark type player/shooter for the bench. I would genuinely be happy if we could get Ryan Anderson or Markeiff Morris like I've been saying, elated if we could get both. They aren't world beaters but they're exactly what I envision us needing.

 

Dragic

Wade

Anderson

Bosh

Whiteside

 

Bench:

TJ

Green

Winslow

Morrison

Amare

Charlotte has zero reason to do that. If a trade that actually brings us value is going to happen, its going to be from a Western Conference team(s)

I suppose there are going to be a lot of trades in 2016. The heat are just not good enough with the players they currently have and bosh and wade ain't getting any younger.

 

 

And bosh has been struggling lately. He doesn't even want to shoot anymore.....The only way to get out of a slump is shooting the basketball. We lost the last game anyways and he barely shot at beginning.

Like I said, I was thinking that we can make a trade for Seth Curry to bring in a shooter since he's not playing for the Kings. Reasonable trade options include Deng, Andersen or Amare since all are expiring contracts & we hardly use the 2 big men.

Miami already got rid of Chalmers, who was an asset that could have been packaged with others to make a good trade... if they were patient.

The dumbest thing we could do is trade Winslow. He's there defensively just needs to work on his offense. Unlike most young players he's got a great work ethic. Whatever his ceiling his barring injury he'll reach it. Besides we have no picks for the next decade. He's a good player on the cheap.

Tyler johnson on otherhand you have to explore. He's played well, and the better he does the more money he'll command in free agency. If he gets an offer close to the 10 mill range , I doubt we'll match unless we move Dragic. So there's a good offer, out there at the trade deadline move him. We may not be able to keep him in the offseason. Whiteside, I doubt you'll get much for him. Why trade for him when you can wait 6 months to get him via free agency. No team will offer anything of value because all they would be doing is renting him for a couple of months.

Because there's a possibility Whiteside will walk for nothing in return. Someone is going to throw a lot of money his way, and if the Heat only play him for 20 mins/game then giving him a 15 million dollar, multiyear contract won't be a good move.

      Hi  everyone!  Once again, I'd like to apologize in advance if this has been spoken about already in this thread.  I always make sure to let everyone know that i'm not always here, and show up every once in a while.  Things should start heating up, so I'll definitely be reading a lot more.  This is obviously the best place to find the most intelligent Heat fans that know basketball. 

      Let's get right into it...
      I was actually hopeful this offseason about our ability to pry BOTH Gordon Hayword and maybe Paul Millsap as free agents...But with the money that these guys are going to have to pass up to come here, i'm more and more pessimistic about being able to sign ANY major player.  Which leads me to TANKING!!!!!!!
      We must land in the top 5 in the lottery...it's literally a must.  Why? Well obviously for the talent and 2, because home grown talent is going to be the way to go for the rest of the NBA landscape.  If Lonzo Ball becomes who i think he will become, we will never be able to sign him as a FA because of all the money he'd be giving up.  Which now leads me to the trades we must do!!!!

      Here is a super realistic 3 part 3 team tank/trade scenario which involves Dragic and Whiteside that the Heat MUST do.  I'm one of the biggest Whiteside supporters btw...but the front of the Jersey and it's future matters most to me...so here we go...keep up lol:
      Part 1: I WANT THAT BROOKLYN PICK!!!! Being able to land two top 5 picks in this draft will be epic!!!!
      - Boston is actively looking for a Center (Vucevic)...their leading rebounder is Avery Bradley for God's sake at 6.9rpg...getting a guy like Hassan Whiteside will make Boston an instant championship/ECF contender and one of the best defensive lineups in basketball:
      Thomas
      Bradley
      Crowder
      Horford
      Whiteside ... I believe this squad can actually bother the Cavs a bit and will be the best threat in the east to them which Pat Riley would probably like anyways...so here's how the trade looks:

      Miami trades Hassan Whiteside to a contender Boston 
      Boston trades Amir Johnson $12MM expiring contract, Tyler Zeller $8MM non guaranteed next year, and Brooklyn's #1 pick...
      Why does Boston do this, the best players in the draft are all PGs and Isaiah Thomas who is already severely underpaid isn't going anywhere on the verge of a scoring title.  If Hassan Whiteside was in the draft then Boston would never trade this pick.  Hassan Whiteside solidifies that team and because we are rebuilding and are no where close to competing for the east, let's focus on homegrown talent in the most talented Draft pool i can remember.  So we land a top 5 pick and free up an additional 23MM next year.

      Part 2: WE NEED A CENTER!!!!! If there's a sliver of Truth to the rumor that Orlando wants to give us Vucevic and a future 1st for Dragic...ONLY in this 3 team trade we must do this immediately!
      Dragic is Dragic...he's not going to win us anything and his value couldn't be any higher than it is right now.  Since we lost Whiteside and his 23MM per, we can pick up a highly skilled stretch big with good foot work for the low post who is 1 year removed from doing Bosh #s and only 26 years old.  Best part about it is he's only making 12MM per over the next 3 years.  That add's an additional 5MM per year + in savings by trading Dragic...annnd a future 1st with Orlando "supposedly" offered to us. 
      Miami Trades Goran Dragic to Orlando
      Orlando trades Nikola Vucevic and a future 1st to Miami 
       
      Part 3: The 3 team trade is essentially done, we've cleared an additional $28MM in salary, and picked up 2 1st rounders including a top 5 pick this year...what's left to do??? Tank...and Tank hard!!!!!!!!! That would allow us to get an additional top 5 pick.  Imagine being able to pair up.....

      Ball 6'6" and Fultz 6'4"
      Ball 6'6" and Monk 6'3"
      Ball 6'6" and Ntikilia 6'5"
      Ball 6'6" and Tatum 6'8"....(Please no more Josh Jackson talk...I already have a defensive specialist and offensive pessimist lol Justise Winslow and his shooting issues to get over...been there done that) 
       
      With all that...Miami would add an additional $28MM to their 2017 Cap space that already will include $51MM available when Bosh is off the books...That's roughly $80MM available to spend.  Now as i mentioned before, i'm not too confident that we'll be able to steal a Free agent, but just think we have the ability to sign 2 max $30MM players (ie for sh^t's and giggles Blake Griffen and Gordon Hayward) and still have $20MM left to spend on a 3rd guy (Jrue Holiday, Jeff Teague, George Hill type that Ball can learn from) or 2 really decent role back up pg players.  
      Best case scenario (does not include any Steph Curry / Durant / Chris Paul talk cuz i think it's bs and a waste of time):
      PG Jrue Holiday / Lonzo Ball / Tyler Johnson
      SG Markell Fultz or Malik Monk / Wayne Ellington / Josh Richardson
      SF Gordon Hayword(option1) or Danilo Gallinari(option2) / James Johnson / Justise Winslow
      PF Blake Griffen(option1) or Paul Millsap(option2) /  Ersan Ilyasova / Josh McRoberts ugh!!! (UD to become a man da fk up consultant)
      C   Nikoli Vucevic / Greg Monroe (cheeeeeaaaaap) / Showtime Willie Reed

      2nd scenario
      PG  Lonzo Ball / Tyler Johnson / Darren Collison
      SG Markell Fultz or Malik Monk / Dwayne Wade lol why not / Josh Richardson
      SF Danilo Gallinari(option 1) Rudy Gay (option 2)/ James Johnson / Justise Winslow
      PF Paul Millsap(option1) Serge Ibaka meh(option2) /  Ersan Ilyasova / Josh McRoberts ugh!!! (UD to become a man da fk up consultant)
      C   Nikoli Vucevic / Showtime Willie Reed / Alex Len
       
      Once again sorry for the long *** post!  Just making up for time lost.  I'd like to hear everyone's take on this.  Am I completely crazy and know nothing about basktetball, am I on to something?  Do you have an alternative best case realistic scenario for us?  I didn't include 2nd round draft picks i'd like us to go after like mighty mouse Marcus Keene and Alec Peters (look em up). 
      Will be back to read comments LATERS!

      I keep saying that I want to trade him this upcoming year because of his age/injuries. 
       
      We have him signed for $5M(at age 37) next season and then $9.5M(at age 38) in 2 years.
       
      I love this guy, he plays with all he has each time he goes out there and has battled through injuries for us. He is even trying to evolve his game by adding a 3pt shot to stay in the league as long as he can with his diminishing athletic ability. He loves Miami. He has the "Miami Beard" and "Miami Grill" going strong these days lol.
      I just don't think we can rely on him anymore... its the sad truth. I love the guy, but its a tough decision, couldn't that money be used on a more impactful player that we need?
      What do you guys think about Birdman's future in Miami? Also, what do you think about his new tattoo? It says, "GIVE ME WAR" at the base of his skull with two skulls above that on his head.

      Why would we sign him with only 2 games left in pre-season?

      To me it only could mean we are getting rid of Cole or Chalmers, and it really seems like it is Cole to me. Chalmers has performed well the last 2 games and is a more versatile player that has done much more in his NBA career.

      What do you guys think this move means?

      NEW YORK — With his starting job gone and his playing time slashed, Rockets center Omer Asik has asked to be traded, two individuals with knowledge of the request said Thursday.
       

       
      Asik, who started every game after signing with the Rockets last season, came off the bench Wednesday in Philadelphia, but struggled. He played only four minutes and not at all in the second half. Asik has made his trade request within the past 48 hours, a person familiar with the conversations said.
       
      The Rockets have no trade involving Asik in the works, with one individual saying a deal is more likely in months than in days.
       
      Asik declined comment, referring questions to his agent, Andy Miller. Miller also would not comment on any trade request.
       
      “I would say the situation is very frustrating right now and were trying to work through it,” Miller said.  “For Omer, the objective has always been to continue to develop and grow as a player. That’s why we came to Houston in the first place. If that objective can’t be met, if we can’t get the right platform to grow and contribute as a player, it’s certainly frustrating.”
       
      Asik, who has the longest streak of consecutive regular-season games played in the NBA, averaging 10.1 points and 11.7 rebounds last season. He is averaging just 5.6 points and 8.1 rebounds this season, with his playing time reduced to an average of just 22.7 minutes per game.
       
      Second-year forward Terrence Jones replaced Asik to start the second half Monday against Toronto and started again on Wednesday in Philadelphia. Rockets coach Kevin McHale said the switch was largely about matchups, but in the second half against the 76ers, Jones returned to the game instead of Asik when Dwight Howard went out in the fourth quarter.
       
      “I think the way they play and spread guys last night with Spencer Hawes and tonight with (Andrea) Bargnani and Carmelo (Anthony), it’s just a better matchup for us,” McHale said.  “Last night, when they backed up, they went smaller, put Lavoy Allen in, another guy who stayed out so we went smaller, too.
       
      “I liked a lot of stuff he and Dwight did together. They were big. They protected the rim. It’s going to be a lot of matchups, a lot how things work. He’s going to have to get out there and play. Will he start against some bigger teams? Possibly.”
       
      At this point, however, Asik would rather start for someone else.

      We should trade 1st rounder, Joel Anthony, James Jones for Omer Asik or M. Gortat just in case Greg Oden isn't ready by playoff. What do you think?
