NBA Rumors: Miami Heat Interested In Mini-LeBron?

 NBA Rumors

There’s nothing better than LeBron James, no doubt about it. Even though the Miami Heat lost out on LeBron Friday to the Cleveland Cavaliers, there’s really no time to sit around and mope about it. Instead, it’s time for them to move on and begin looking at other free agents that could make an immediate impact alongside Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh.

And since the real LeBron James left, why not target (or at least inquire) about Mini-LeBron?

That’s exactly what the Heat are reportedly doing.

On Friday, the Phoenix Suns (Bledsoe’s incumbent squad) picked up Isaiah Thomas from Sacramento in a sign and trade, potentially making Bledsoe a little more expendable. Though, odds are that the Suns would match any offer that Bledsoe would warrant.

The Heat, meanwhile, are also interested in Luol Deng and Trevor Ariza.

In summary, just because Pat Riley lost out on LeBron James doesn’t mean he’s done. Riley managed to secure Chris Bosh and will likely re-sign Dwyane Wade. Something else will come, at the very least Riley will do everything in his power to try.

Miami won’t be a Championship favorite next season, but by no means will they be a lottery team, either.
