2. Thomas Bryant

Thomas Bryant showed pre-season flashes, but that hasn’t translated to the regular season. With Kevin Love being the primary backup and given the way Orlando Robinson has been playing, it will be hard for Bryant get minutes going forward.

Bryant doesn't fit Miami's defensive scheme and hasn't been productive enough on offense to warrant playing time. Since the start of the season, he's been surpassed on the depth chart by Love and Robinson.

Trading Bryant at the deadline would give him a chance somewhere else and potentially open up a roster spot to be a player on the buyout market. The Heat could also include Bryant's $2.5 million deal with another salary to make a consolidation trade.

Prediction: Traded before the deadline
