NBA Trade Rumors: Heat looking to make a big move for Jazz shooting duo?

NBA Trade Rumors: In an attempt to solve their shooting woes, the Miami Heat could target a pair of Utah Jazz players ahead of the trade deadline.

Even though the Miami Heat has certainly played better as of late, their offensive inconsistencies make it hard to view this team as a potential dark horse in the Eastern Conference heading into the second half of the season.

Unless, of course, they can solve some of those issues by making a move at the NBA Trade Deadline. And if there’s one thing we know about the Heat, it’s that they’re going to do their best to try to do that. Whether or not they find the right deal to pull the trigger on is an entirely different question.

According to a recent report, the Heat is one team that has expressed interest in Malik Beasley and could even attempt to try and get a bigger deal done with the Utah Jazz. Per this report, the Heat could look to compete a deal with the Jazz that would net them both Beasley and Kelly Olynyk.

Could the Miami Heat solve their shooting woes with a big move at the NBA Trade Deadline?

Beasley and Olynyk would undoubtedly be an attempt to help solve the team’s shooting woes. After being one of the better 3-point shooting teams a season ago, which significantly helped them come within one game of an NBA Finals appearance, the Heat has fallen drastically and is one of the worst shooting teams in the league this season.

For as much as the Heat has struggled this season, you can look at the team’s shooting struggles as one of the main culprits. On one hand, you can’t fault the front office for believing that if they can improve their shooting (even just a tad), this is a team that can emerge as a threat during the push toward the playoffs.

That may end up being flawed thinking, but it wouldn’t be surprising if that’s the thought the front office had heading into the trade deadline.

At this point, you have to think that either the Heat is going to make a big move at the deadline or they stand pat. But it seems that this is a team that is exploring all possible avenues for improving the roster.
