After a slow start to the season, the Miami Heat have been on fire (no pun intended) over the last few weeks. Miami has won 11 of their last 15 games and with everyone healthy and playing at a high-level, this team is starting to look like the team that won the Eastern Conference last year en route to the NBA Finals. 

This team is finally starting to figure things out and after just acquiring Trevor Ariza, the Heat may not be done making moves. This year’s NBA trade deadline is at 3pm EST on March 25th and if there is one thing we know about Pat Riley and this Heat front-office, it is that they are going to be “fishing” for some of the biggest names available to increase their chances to win a championship. 

Jimmy Butler has been the driving force of this team when he has been on the court for them and with Bam Adebayo, Goran Dragic and others continuing to play at a high-level, the Miami Heat definitely have a chance to contend in the Eastern Conference come playoff time, much like they did last year in the NBA Bubble.

They do not have many draft assets, but the Heat have three highly-valued young players in Kendrick Nunn, Tyler Herro and Duncan Robinson, as well as some impactful veteran players they could move in order to acquire another high-level, impactful player. 

With that said, let’s take a look at three last-minute trade targets for the Miami Heat to consider trading for that could end up being the difference in them making another deep playoff run this season.
