I'll make this a free-flowing poll so you can change your vote at any time you want, just vote differently if and when you change your mind in the weeks until the draft.

Let's see what the collective brain trust say.

As we get closer to the draft some of the weaker names might get dropped and replaced by new more likely names on the list

Hard for me to say. Not sure who will be available at 20.

Let's just assume all of the names on the list will be available because there's no way to know who gets picked where, so just choose the player you hope for

Im hoping for one of the following players to fall like Acuiwa, McDaniel, Anthony, Lewis or Mannion.

I did not sacrifice the final GT of the regular season for the Heat to draft a guy that could not carry in the finals.

We can sign a vet big man in the off season, so I think it would be best to draft a guard this time. Only problem, is that I don't think any of those guards in the pole besides Quickley will be there at 20. Right now, I'm liking solid guys that can contribute to a contender out the gate like Tre Jones or Malachi Flynn. Both of them are smart, experienced pgs that take care of the ball, pester opposing guards, can act as secondary playmakers to Jimmy, and can run the offense off the bench day 1. Jones brings better size and athleticism, while Flynn will be a better shooter.

I originally thought both of these guys would be possibly in the 2nd round, but they've been rising up some of the boards recently.
According to places like The Athletic and DraftExpress, there's been plenty of positive buzz about them around the league since workouts started. Also, the Heat have an interview with Jones coming up, so I know they're at least curious.

Changed my pick to Tyrese Maxey. I like Desmond Bane a lot but we've had so much luck with Kentucky picks I think we just need to go for it. Anyone but Duke player tho.

Beside Quickley and Mcdaniels, most of those guys are likely to be gone by 20,

We should draw a more realistic list, I hope we trade down to get 2 picks with Quickley and Reed, they can contribute right away and improve our roster

Try to include those guys, they could be there at 20:

Riler
Oturu
Woodard
Perry
Tillman
Quickley
Joe
Steward
Mcdaniels
Nnaji
Reed
Jones
Bane
Bey Tiler
Ramsey
Winston
Stanley
Maledon
Eboua

I think Maxey is a real possibility at 20. I don't think he's moving up but just solidifying his ranking around 20 with his recent workouts.

Quicklely, I think is still a early 2nd round or late 1st (25 and above) range player. Heat would likely have to make a move for. Unless there footage or a workout that they have seen showing the potential to be a more well rounded player.

I think it's very unlikely we draft 2 rookies. I think theres a better chance we get 0

Only if it is a 3 and Block big with quick feet, there aren't any in free agency...

Glad to see goodboy Smith has the lead in this early stage.

I think he's the only one that could actually earn a spot in starting 5 as soon as next year if we get lucky and he really pans out.

I think smith will be gone by 20

We should keep with Bam Crowder frontcourt

Smith might not have the foot speed nor the strengh to back up bam without loosing much

Looks like Heat like Nnaji better, because he would be stronger to play alongside bam in those specific LA matchups

I think Smith has decent foot speed but the strength is what I question. I worry about him defending stronger players. Smith struggled with Oturu strength.. Its what made Crowder functional at PF is his strength. If we get Smith he needs to go in the gym with Zo and the new muscle bound KZ

Yeah he gets pushed around a bit, I dont think the speed speed is there compared to a guy like reed, reed needs to get stronger too
