The Miami Heat are trying to bring in free agents this summer so that the Big 3 can be convinced to return but so far those plans aren’t going as well as Pat Riley may have hoped they would be.
According to Fox Sports Ohio reporter and NBA scribe Sam Amico, the Heat are trying to lure in difference making free agents but so far the plan hasn’t been working out so great.
Talk around NBA is Heat plan on luring free agents other than own not coming together. Also told reported $$ on Bosh and Wade is incorrect.

It’s only the second day of free agency and names aren’t flying off the market like they did in the NHL on first day of hockey free agency. Still, it appears that the Heat are having a tough go of things when it comes to selling free agents on coming to South Beach.
There’s no saying that this isn’t just a result of the market being controlled by Carmelo Anthony, but the Heat need to start making hard pushes at free agents and the fact that we keep hearing them come up in daily rumors is very encouraging.
