17. Miami Heat - Reed Sheppard, G, Kentucky

Who knows what the Miami Heat will end up doing between now and the offseason? They could make a big move at the NBA Trade Deadline or they could decide to stand pat. Right now, everything is on the table for the Heat. If they do enter the NBA Draft with a top 20 pick, there's a chance they could look to address their need in the backcourt. With Kyle Lowry likely moving on after this season, the Heat has a huge need at the point guard position.

Perhaps Reed Sheppard could be a prospect they end up targeting at this point in the NBA Draft. We know the Heat likes Kentucky guards and after hitting on Tyler Herro and then passing on Tyrese Maxey, there's a chance the Heat never passes on another Kentucky guard again. And how could you blame them?

Through the first few games of his freshman season at Kentucky, Sheppard is averaging 14 points, five rebounds, and four assists on a highly efficient 62 percent shooting from the field and 61 percent shooting from 3-point range.
