    Kyle Lowry and Heat have mutual interest

    Kyle Lowry would be a major upgrade at PG. He is light years better at defense than Chalmers and Cole. The guy is a better passer. Nearly 8 assists a game last year. He is a guy that can create his own shot and penetrate inside to get to the free throw line and get buckets inside. He can dribble in and create shots for others. Instead of standing around on the 3 point line like Chalmers and Cole all game. 38% from 3 this past season.

    he breaks down defenses with his speed, can score and can stroke the 3. what's not to love?
    the question is can we afford him even with the big 3 restructuring.

    You cannot afford him unless one of the big three leave

    His defense is overrated, but his motor and hustle is way better than both of our point guards.

    I think it's a long shot we land him.

    not getting either. There are teams a lot younger with more money who are not declining. The heat were lucky to find there guys to take less and play together. Older players will do it to get a ring but younger guys which is what heat need generally dont. Plus you also have the two best nba franchises. In the league Lakers and Boston who have cap. Let's face it heat are no where near these teams when it comes to luring free agents

    The big 3 and Lowry would all take pay cuts. Everyone knows if they come to the Heat they are going to have to take a pay cut. Lowry knows this.

    Neither Boston or LA came close to sniffing the playoffs, we've been to 4 straight finals. Maybe if this were to 80s you'd have a point but were head and shoulder above both teams at luring free agents right now, hence all the Melo talk.

    I said this mid season


    Lowry should be the number 1 target!

    You can teach defense, hustle and some offense but you can't teach height. The #1 priority should be to get a legit 7-foot center. Failing to understand this has been Riley's biggest weakness over the years. First it was undersized Zo (at the time of likes of Ewing, O'Neal, Hakim and Robinson); now it's a bunch of players.

    Ball-handling? Slashing to the basket? Lebron and Wade (when he is healthy) can do that. But they can't intimidate opponents into staying away from the rim!

    As soon as you mentioned "undersized Zo" I stopped reading because I realized you don't know what you're talking about. I wouldn't call Zo at 6'10" undersized compared to any of those guys you mentioned (ranging from 6'10" to 7'1") except for Shaq and that's more because of sheer bulk that no one could match no matter how tall they were. He more than held his own against any centers during the 90s but maybe you weren't a fan back then to remember that. Just being tall isn't enough, there are plenty of worthless tall NBA players. It takes more than just height.

    And please tell me how many "legit" 7 foot centers there are in the NBA right now. That's just not how the NBA is anymore.

    Plus it's not like we won 2 championships without a big man, right? 7 footers are risky investments. They usually have poor hand eye coordination, plus they seem much more injury prone. I'd take an "undersized" Zo (with a 7'6 wingspan btw, which is far more relevant in basketball) any day of the week.
