Miami Heat "still looking to make another deal"

Published Add your comment

The Miami Heat will look to bring in a wing player before the trade deadline on February 20, according to NBA analyst David Aldrige.

The speculation is prompted by the belief that the Heat are fearing for their status as the king-pins of basketball, particularly in the wake of rumours suggesting that LeBron James may opt out of his deal at the end of the season.

On recent form there are a few teams who have a better record than Miami, and as such some are fearing that the reigning NBA champs may have run out of steam mid-way through the season.

Whilst that may be an outlandish claim given that the Heat are sitting on a seasonal record of 29-12, Aldrige insists that the Heat will look to add at least one more player to their roster before the trade deadline in a bid to bolster their depth.

According to, he said: “With Oden looking like he can be a contributor, the Heat sent veteran center Joel Anthony to Boston last week as part of a three-team deal that brought guard Toney Douglas to Miami. But people around the league think the Heat are still looking to make another deal, for a wing, before the trade deadline.”

The Heat take on the Boston Celtics tonight and will be bidding to end a slump which has seen them lose four of their last six games.
