The Miami Heat have been one of the most consistent teams in the Eastern Conference all season long, which is why they have a very good shot at reaching their second NBA Finals in the last three seasons.

The success of the Heat this season definitely sets them up for a potential long run in the postseason, but regardless of what happens in the playoffs, they will be a team with questions to answer in the offseason.

Ahead of the start of the 2021-22 season, the Heat gave Duncan Robinson a five-year, $90 million extension, leaving them very limited in terms of cap resources and available funds in upcoming free agencies. 

While they have found a ton of success with Robinson on the floor, the Heat’s sharpshooter has suddenly become expendable to an extent with the emergence of other undrafted free agents in Max Strus, Gabe Vincent, and Caleb Martin.
