Dejounte Murray

Both Hawks guards could be involved in trade rumors this summer. Between the two, Trae Young is the better player in terms of the offensive ability he brings. However, Dejounte Murray is likely a better fit in Miami due to his ability to defend.

Murray, who is 27, averaged a career-high 22.5 points per game this season to go along with 6.4 assists and 1.4 steals per game. Perhaps more importantly for the Heat, he appeared in over 65 games in each of the last five seasons. For a team that seemingly always struggles with injuries, this might be something the Heat want to consider when hunting for co-stars.

Murray is not as talented as some of the other stars the Heat could pursue, but he is a very good fit. Sometimes, fit matters more than talent. If the Heat decide to go this route, they will bolster their backcourt defense while also strengthening their clutch time offense.
