The Miami Heat have probably been the most disappointing team so far near the half-way point of the 2020-21 NBA season and they just have not looked like the same team that fought their way to the NBA Finals last season. This year’s Miami team just does not look like they are playing with a sense of urgency and they quite honestly do not look like they care at times.
If the Heat do not turn things around quickly, they could find themselves fighting just to get into the playoffs at the end of the season! Missing the playoffs would not be a good look for this organization and if we know anything about Pat Riley, it is that he is going to do everything he can to turn this roster around into a legit championship contender it should be.
Of course, injuries and safety protocols have negatively affected this team to this point in the year, but they are currently 15-17 and in dire need of a roster change. Some guys are just not pulling their weight anymore, which is why the Heat could potentially look to target Kylw Lowry before the trade deadline.
Reports have surfaced over the last few days about some teams showing interest in Kyle Lowry, the Miami Heat being one of them as Keith Pompey of The Philadelphia Inquirer wrote. Seeing as Goran Dragic has only played in 18 games this year due to injuries and Tyler Herro has also missed some time, Miami could really benefit from adding Lowry to their roster.
Having three All-Star level talents in Butler, Adebayo and Lowry could give the Miami Heat exactly what they need to make it back to the playoffs and give them the firepower to potentially make another surprisingly deep run.
With that said, let’s take a look at the best trade the Heat could offer to the Raptors in attempts to acquire Kyle Lowry.
