5. Thomas Bryant

Things didn't go quite as planned after the Heat acquired Thomas Bryant last summer, but he did have a few bright moments during the season's final stretch. Maybe he'll be more comfortable under Spo and company for another year. Maybe the Heat can get Bryant, who shot 40% from three on low volume. 

Bryant wouldn't be a hot commodity if he rejected his $2 million player option and entered free agency. He'll be back in Miami next year.

The question is whether he will be in the rotation or not. With Zach Edey constantly being linked to the Heat in the year's draft, will Edey take the backup big minutes? Or will the Heat draft Edey with the expectation that Bam Adebayo will shoot threes more consistently, sliding Bam to the four? Things are in the air for Bryant's playing time-wise, but he'll be back.
