Other options:

Delon Wright: He has family ties to the Heat organization (his brother, Dorell Wright, once played for the Heat) and would be a solid reserve guard option. Even though he's posting his lowest box-score numbers since his rookie season, he can still defend the point of attack and would provide valuable experience to the locker room.

Harry Giles III: Giles has a long injury history but has worked hard to stay in the league. He offers size, athleticism and the potential of 3-point shooting, but he’s definitely a project.

Seth Curry: It’s still unclear what the Hornets aim to do with Curry after acquiring him from the Mavericks in the P.J. Washington deal. Curry is 33 and might not be interested in playing for a rebuilding team, but he’s also from Charlotte and his dad, Dell, is a broadcaster for the team. 

Thaddeus Young: The 35-year-old forward was traded to the Nets on Thursday and could negotiate a buyout of his $8 million expiring salary. He’s experienced and useful in a minor role.

Robin Lopez: Traded from Milwaukee to Sacramento, then waived, Lopez should latch on to a playoff team looking for additional depth at center. If the Heat believe Lopez is a better option than Thomas Bryant and Orlando Robinson, perhaps they can bring him in.
