The Miami Heat have a lot of cap space to play with now as they will soon have all three members of the Big 3 off the books which means that the team can go out and try to add pieces to bring back the only member of the Big 3 they truly care about — LeBron James.
According to ESPN’s Chris Broussard, the Heat may have interest in signing Pau Gasol this summer, which is either really awesome of the Heat or further proof that Broussard was dropped on his head as child at some point and now just says things.
With the Heat now having a ton of cap space to play with, we will hear all sorts of reports thrown against the wall with those throwing them doing so only to see what sticks and what doesn’t. But this is really the first we’re hearing of Pau Gasol mentioned with the Heat and love Broussard or hate him, it makes a lot of sense.
Gasol works best when he’s surrounded by great pieces, but he himself is a great piece to have if you’re trying to make your superstar player better. Kobe Bryant had a ton of success with Gasol running alongside him and if he comes to Miami then Gasol would be plying int he same front court as the Heat’s superstar.
It may be along shot but the Heat will need to add a pretty big name to convince LeBron to come back and Gasol not only seems like a good option but he could be affordable as well.
