The Miami Heat need another wing and another playmaker, for which there are good options to choose from at both positions.

The Miami Heat need to think about adding another piece that can move the offense and set up plays. There are a few names that stand out.

Grab A Few Playmakers

Two of those names are Lonzo Ball and Spencer Dinwiddie. Both players can run an offense and diversify how teams would guard Miami when playing alongside Butler and Dragic.

Another talented point guard will also give some punch to the second unit if you are pairing a player like Ball with Kendrick Nunn. Dinwiddie is a solid third PG to put in the rotation and is also an unrestricted free agent.

He would provide ball movement and some modest scoring. Ball is a RFA and could potentially be more pricy, but he is a better scorer.

He also stepped up his three-point shooting last season, hitting 37 percent of his shots while attempting two more per game than the year prior. Both would add valuable depth and aren’t what you would consider ball-stoppers.

Bring in a wing. 

Long guys who clog up the opponent’s offense and knock down the occasional shots are always great to have when filling out a roster—the classic 3-and-D addition. A few come to mind hitting free agency, but the best option to grab on the cheap is Torrey Craig.

He is a solid shooter at 36 percent and a sound on-ball defender. He has also played in 47 postseason games, shooting 44 percent from the field and 37 percent from three.

A chance to pick up a player with high-pressure games under his belt that has shown to be able to step up to the challenge in those high-pressure games is always an offseason win. That stands mightily when he’s a player that would seemingly fit what it is that you do as a team.

Next. The Tyler Herro Trade Scenario Runs Deep. dark

The Miami Heat have moves to make and the time is nigh to make them. This shall be a very fluid offseason, that’s a sure thing, but excitement is the running mate of that fluidity this time around.
