I don't even think Dedmond is healthy enough to play this year from reports. He might be leaning towards sitting out till next year.

Thon Maker is cool, but his stats looks bad specially after he was given all the opportunities to succeed, Bucks were very high on him

Maker is pretty Bad rebounder for a 7 footer, we need rebounding, pass...

Really wouldn't shock me at this point if we ended up signing Jabari Parker. Between the Duke ties, having played with Belly, needing a scorer besides Bam in the front court, former high school team mate of Kendrick Nunn, and Chicago ties with Wade. If these rumblings are true about not going with a true center then he comes to mind.

None of those guys can play with Bam and we already have an unplayable big with Bam in Achuiwa. Need a 5 or 4 with a semblance of an outside shot. If we are trying to get by with 6'8 225 Achuiwa then getting someone like Parker at 6'8 245 who can at least score might not be the worst idea. Right now I'm viewing Bjelica as our backup center and Achuiwa as our 3rd option since he has not developed the offensive skill set to play the 4. You could play Achuiwa with Bjelica or Parker though. You can't play Achuiwa with any of the players you listed above.

Joel averaging 23 ppg vs. Bam head to head (9 ppg for Bam). We need a legit body that we can throw on an Embiid, Lopez, etc. for 10 mins to help keep Bam fresh. Precious isn’t that guy atm and neither is Beli.

Makes sense, I was thinking about a break in case of emergency big when teams try to go big and bully the Heat inside. That player would not play most nights, but when we face a LA team or Sixers and bam get in foul trouble or injured, he could have a role. 3pt shooting for that player would be a nice bonus but rebounding and strenght would be as much if not more importent.

Hernangomez could be a good fit, hope he get loose from the pelicans, since they don't play him much

We could have had, Cousins but decided to pass, we went after Aldrige, Drumond, and probably Dieng too, but got rejected..So I think Heat still looking for that kind of big body to match on the boards with Howard, Embiid, Lopez, Drumond, Jordan, Aldridge etc...

Best possible options could be Hrnangomez or I hate to say it Whiteside, if he can fix his brain, Heat basicly made a carreer for him, he should be gratefull and pay it back

No way in hell Whiteside is coming back if we passed on Cousins. Hernangomez is a good fit.

I mentioned that Butler and Bjelica were +18.7 per 100 possessions in Minnesota, they seem to still be doing good in Miami too.

I hope the Heat can resign Duncan for less than $16 mil per year. That would be a good value. That’s half of what Bam makes per year. I’m not sure what Nunn and Oladipo would get from the Heat. There are so many guards on the roster now.

They’re probably willingly to let Nunn walk and Im sure he wants a more prominent role anyway.

"Heat folks" as in RealGM & r/Heat posters?

Because they don't talk to a damn soul within the actual organization, and that's beyond evident. Sick of those clowns and their guess work.

Rental, IMO, yet a worthy one based on the small price we paid.

I'd imagine we will be moving on in the summer.
