The Miami Heat have moves to make during the NBA All-Star break, as they look to make a strong push during the second half of the season into the NBA postseason. Now, while there are a few names out there, the reports indicate that the Miami Heat prefer to address their big man rotation rather than address anything else at this particular time.
