As the NBA prepares to resume the 2019-2020 season, there a few names available that might could help the Miami Heat in their title chase.

With the Miami Heat getting set to tip things back off and complete their season, potentially, you start to once again get into the mode of thinking team needs. With players having the right to choose to play based on if they feel comfortable enough to come back, with potential contraction of coronavirus, or with injury, there will inevitably be a need for replacement players.

With such a long layoff since the teams last played actual contests, the chances for injury are actually just that much higher. With that in mind though, who are some of the names that the Miami Heat could consider bringing on in one of those unfortunate circumstances?

Better yet, there may be a guy worthy of a look even without those circumstances being at play. Don’t worry though, we have you covered here.

Here are four candidates that the Miami Heat may need to take a flier on.

Allen Crabbe

The $85 million dollar man named Allen Crabbe that hasn’t quite lived up to his potential, or salary, would be a perfect fit for the Miami Heat if they needed a guy. A career 38.7 percent shooter from deep, he hasn’t quite been able to get it going in any of his last two stops after departing Brooklyn.

With less than 20 minutes per game and five shots per contest averaged between his last two stops in Minnesota and Atlanta, Crabbe really wasn’t ever given the chance to succeed, it seems. A shooter of his caliber, when he’s going, needs to be given open looks and the chances are, that he will knock them down.

With the Miami Heat not relying on a traditional point guard, it’s best to just put as many shooters and playmakers around the main ballhandlers as possible, mostly Jimmy Butler and Bam Adebayo in Miami’s case. With Crabbe’s shooting and just a little bit of wiggle in the driving/slashing game, which he has, he could be an awesome addition to what the Miami Heat already have going.
