2. Terry Rozier

A player who remains underrated by many across the NBA landscape, Terry Rozier has been putting on a show for the Charlotte Hornets this season. With LaMelo Ball missing significant time for the Hornets due to injury, Rozier has stepped up and has been one of the main reasons Charlotte has been able to stay competitive in his absence.

One very interesting detail regarding Rozier is his connection to the Heat organization. The shifty guard has gone on record saying Dwyane Wade is one of his favorite players of all-time, and that Wade inspired him as a basketball player growing up. It would certainly seem that Rozier would welcome a move to Miami if it were in the cards for him.

3. Bruce Brown

One of the most important role player on the Denver Nuggets' 2023 championship team has been on the move ever since taking home his first ring. Signing with the Indiana Pacers in the offseason, Brown seemed to be finding a groove in 33 games with his new team until he was suddenly dealt to the Toronto Raptors in the blockbuster deal that landed Indiana Pascal Siakam.

With the Raptors looking to be on the outside of the playoff picture looking in, many are wondering if they will continue to be sellers and move toward a complete rebuild. If they go in that direction, Bruce Brown would be another high-level option the Heat would likely want to pursue.
