    Roster Speculation Thread XVIIII

    Pelicans are reportedly open to parting ways with Ryan Anderson. I think we should definitely look into that for added 3 point shooting. He's a very good stretch 4.

    Theres a reason why Miami is scheduled to play against the Pelicans on christmas day, just sit back and wait for it,


    The greatest heist in NBA history.

If Beas can be what he was when he was a rookie (he won't hell be better) then the heat are coming away with another steal.

    His contract is 8.5 million so I would have to be McRoberts and someone else. I would rather not send Deng if possible. McRoberts would bring a different style of play for them off the bench and also clear us up some cap space. Idk how we could make a trade centered around those 2 work.

    Since this is where we come to speculate over this season and next season's roster....

    Where we stand
    The Heat are $5.6 million above the tax. The Heat can move Birdman, McRoberts or a combination of Udrih and Stokes before season's end to avoid the repeater tax.

    Current Needs
    -Lacking in Assists
    -Lacking in 3pt Shooting
    -Backup Bigs

    Salaries
    Code:
    Player name 	2015/16 	2016/17 	2017/18 	2018/19 	2019/20 
    Chris Bosh 	$22,192,730 	$23,741,060 	$25,289,390 	$26,837,720 	
    Dwyane Wade 	$20,000,000 				
    Goran Dragic 	$14,783,000 	$15,891,725 	$17,000,450 	$18,109,175 	$19,217,900 
    Luol Deng 	$10,151,612 				
    Josh McRoberts 	$5,543,725 	$5,782,450 	$6,021,175 		
    Chris Andersen 	$5,000,000 				
    Udonis Haslem 	$2,854,940 				
    Justise Winslow $2,481,720 	$2,593,440 	$2,705,040 	$3,448,926 	$4,697,437 
    Beno Udrih 	$2,170,465 				
    Amare Stoudemire $1,499,187 				
    Gerald Green 	$1,362,897 				
    Hassan Whiteside $981,348 				
    Tyler Johnson 	$845,059 				
    Jarnell Stokes 	$845,059 	$980,431 			
    Josh Richardson $525,093 	$874,636 	$1,014,746 		
    Totals          $91,236,835 	$48,008,675 	$48,311,015 	$44,946,895 	$19,217,900 
    The Summer of 2016
    Riley still seems to think he can attract Durant, I commend the man for thinking big. But if he even wants a seat at the table, this surely can't be the lineup we finish the season with. There must be some trade happening before to make us more competitive now and more attractive. Otherwise if we're a team that isn't attractive, why would anyone come...or stay for that matter?

    Wade, Deng and Whiteside control their own fate for next season.

    Dragic, Bosh, McRoberts have contracts which wont be easily moved

    Winslow and Tyler will be sticking around

    Everyone else is not under contract and or of a negligible amount that is easily movable

    Questions for next future
    How do the Heat plan to utilize Wade moving forward in his later years. A Kobe type full load? A Dirk medium load? A Duncan light load?

    Do you build around a center like Hassan with the game going small? If Whiteside walks do we go full smallball with Bosh at the 5?

    If Whiteside walks I think Bosh will definitely go back to being the 5. Wade is still elite and better than Kobe was at his age so I'm not sure what the approach will be but I think it'll be a lot like it is now which I think is good for him health wise. I think we're going to be making some moves this year.

    Yeah once that rumor leaked I'm sure more teams will trump a Deng or McRoberts offer. Also one rumor is Anderson for Markieff. Also Pelicans interested in Solomon Hill.

    ESPN sources say Milwaukee Bucks have made big man Miles Plumlee available for potential deals as NBA trade season inches ever closer
    Trade activity is starting to pick up.

    Here's my take on the Hassan Whiteside decision we will be facing this offseason. Whiteside is a Deandre Jordan type center. Nothing more, nothing less. That's the style he is and there's nothing wrong with that. People on here get mad when he's not getting the ball in the post but they need to face the reality that he isn't a good post player. In fact he's one of the worst. If he would focus all of his effort on doing the dirty work like Dennis Rodman used to do there's no doubt in my mind he could be an absolute monster and put up monster numbers every night. If he would do this and average 15-15-5 which is definitely possible for him if he focuses all of his energy on those things then I have no problem with him getting the max. I would also like to see 5 out of those 15 rebounds be offensive rebounds which is a good way for him to get his points. Let's say on 3 of those rebounds he score and gets hit with a dump off or oop from Wade or Dragic 4 times a game, that's 14 points right there. All he has to do now is make a free throw to get that 15 I would like to see. I also need to see his help defense get better as well as his one on one defense. I also wouldn't be surprised if he shot 70% from the field playing this style. As of right now he averages 12-10-4 and is easily the best shot blocker in the league but I think we can all agree that he needs to be more consistent in attacking the boards.

    There's a good chance he takes the max but maybe he'll stay for a few million less and Wade will as well to try and bring Durant or some other players in but who knows. Part of me feels like Riley's plan for 2016 doesn't involve Whiteside and part of me feels like he would be dumb to just let him walk away. I definitely think he needs to watch a ton of Rodman film and try to match his intensity every night.
