The Miami Heat don’t have a lottery pick and though Maxey might make it past 15, it’ll be a close call if the Heat want to actually land him.

The Miami Heat are a team that is known for being able to do the most with the least. They will get something or someone impactful wherever they pick, even at 20.

However, Maxey appears to be climbing up draft boards. Not only did his workout at a Pro Day with projected top pick, Anthony Edwards, help to highlight just how good he is and how closely talented he is to Edwards, but it also put a lot of eyes on him in general.

Maxey is talented enough to be in the top 10 of this draft, nevertheless, at any pick prior to 20. The Miami Heat can do some maneuvering though if they feel he’ll actually be gone before their time to pick arrives.

The Miami Heat need a guard and one that can come in to make an impact right away. With Maxey’s shooting ability and ability to create looks for himself from anywhere on the floor, he could be the guy to do just that.

All of Pat Riley’s favors and creative genius will be needed and to be called in to make it happen, but again, there is a path. Will they get it done though?

Who knows? In all actuality, we shouldn’t know what to expect.

When we’ve thought that they would zig over the past few drafts, they’ve zagged.

I do know this though, if they want to get the most bang for their buck at 20 or anywhere in that range, they should pray that Maxey somehow slips. I don’t see that happening though, so maybe they need to move up.

He would be worth it. Not only does he appear to be supremely talented on the court, but he fits the culture off of it.

That’s just as, if not more, important than anything.
