Minimum-level center targets for the Heat

Goga Bitadze: Filling in for injuries during a mid-season stretch, Bitadze played well in 33 starts for the Magic averaging 7.4 points, 7 renounds, 1.8 assists and 1.7 blocks in 22.5 minutes per game from early November to mid-January. The 18th pick in the 2019 draft offers size (6-foot-11, 250 pounds) and 3-point shooting potential, too.

Jalen Smith: Another former first-round pick (10th in 2020), Smith hasn’t managed to get his NBA footing in stops in Phoenix and Indiana. He’s a career 33.5% 3-point shooter and solid rebounder. 

Daniel Theis: Theis is seasoned and versatile. At 6-foot-8, he’s a bit undersized but he plays hard, can switch on the perimeter and make spot-up 3s (33% for his career).
