The Miami Heat are a team that is capable of winning the title, as they were close last season. Lou Williams might be available and could fill a need for Miami.

The Miami Heat were close to winning a title last year. Yes, we all know that “almost” and “close” only counts in horseshoes and grenades, but still, it’s worth a mention.

That goes even more so when thinking about the fact that the new NBA season is now officially less than a month away. The Miami Heat had a good NBA Draft and a decent NBA Free Agency, but are there still potential moves out there to be made?

Well, it looks like there might be. Let’s look at something recently published by Marc Stein of the New York Times that piqued our interest.

The rumor is about one particular explosive scoring guard. Here’s a hint, he’s a sixth man extraordinaire, as Stephen A. Smith might call him.

"The Clippers, though, haven’t folded. They went into the off-season determined to make dramatic chemistry changes after a humbling second-round playoff exit to Denver. They upgraded from Harrell — who team officials quietly decided had to go — by luring Serge Ibaka away from Toronto. The additions of Ibaka and Luke Kennard (via trade with Detroit) are just the beginning; many rival teams also expect the Clippers to trade Lou Williams in their quest to create a fresh-start environment after they blew a 3-1 series lead to the Nuggets."

You read it right. The last line is what we are focusing on.

If the Clippers do indeed make Williams available, here are three reasons why the Miami Heat should look into the situation.
