With the loss of Dwyane Wade and the sticky situation involving Chris Bosh, the Miami Heat are starting anew.
Aside from coach Erik Spoelstra and and a couple other holdovers, this year’s roster will will have a considerably different feel from the days of Wade (now with Chicago), Bosh (blood clots) and LeBron James (coming off his first Cleveland title).
The star power has, in a word, vanished.
But the Heat could potentially make some moves. Meanwhile on another coast, the Sacramento Kings and small forward Rudy Gay seem more than willing to part ways.
So if the Heat really are looking for players … and Gay and the Kings really do want to part ways … well, maybe there’s something here that might work.
This from the Miami Herald:
Also keep Rudy Gay’s name in mind. He informed the Kings that he likely will opt out of his contract next summer, and a close associate said the Heat appeals to him. Gay has averaged 18.4 points per game in his career, with 750 three-pointers on 34.4 percent shooting.
The Heat will likely need something, anything to start feeling good again and try to make another run to the playoffs. Would Gay be the answer? Stay tuned.
