The Heat are one of the few teams Ish Smith hasn’t played for over his 13-year career, but maybe the two sides can change that in the coming days.

Smith is a known quantity who offers experience and is well-liked in every locker room he’s been a part of. At 6-foot, he’s small but can get to the rim in a hurry, rarely turns the ball over and keep the offense moving. 

There are concerns with what he gives up defensively and he’s a non-factor from the perimeter (he has just eight 3-point attempts all season), but he’s been in the NBA for a long time for a reason. Coaches trust him and players like him. The Heat could do worse than Smith in this kind of pinch.
