The Miami Heat finished the 2021-22 NBA regular season at the top of the Eastern Conference, but that does not mean that they will be satisfied with the position they are in, especially if this campaign does not end with a championship.

The Heat added Kyle Lowry to the mix last offseason in a sign-and-trade with the Toronto Raptors. They will make aggressive moves when the opportunities arise. Miami has been linked to trades involving pieces that would help them reshape on the floor and financially.

Jimmy Butler and Bam Adebayo provide the star power for Miami. Tyler Herro scored 20.7 points per game for the Heat this season off the bench. This was the most of any bench player by a large margin and earned him the Sixth Man of the Year award. Since the Heat are in win-now mode, they could target a team that is looking to sell for a deal.
