Miami are eyeing to sign one established and one developmental player, as reports the Real GM. Miami was routed by the Portland Trail Blazers 110-93 last Saturday night. The Heat played without their star, Dwyane Wade, who sat out for the second consecutive night due to back and neck injuries, according to the ESPN.
The chances of return for Chris Bosh is slimmer than the team’s chances of clinching the third spot in the Eastern conference. Currently, the Heat have ten regular season games in hand. Now the management is trying to fill-up their roster without luxury tax repercussions.
If the Heat are going to the playoffs with Goran Dragic and Josh Richardson at point guard, without signing anymore veteran, they can consider signing their D-League associate Skyforce’s player Briante Weber.
Dorell Wright is another choice for the Heat. This man is capable of filling up Gerald Green’s spot. Free agent Wright has been sitting quietly after returning from China where he posted averages of 24 points. Is Wright waiting for the franchise which drafted him out of the high school to have a go at him?
If the Heat are looking to enter the playoffs with added protection at the point-guard position, there are chances that they might rope in John Lucas III. Lucas III was a late offseason cut. He is famous for his three-point shooting.
