The Miami Heat hardly had a great offseason, losing Dwyane Wade to the Chicago Bulls while Chris Bosh's future in the sport still seems to be up in the air.
The Heat seem to be looking to rebuild to improve on their 2015/16 season that saw them finish third in the Eastern Conference, tied with the Atlanta Hawks, Boston Celtics, and Charlotte Hornets.
Part of that improvement could be made via some potential trades, and a new name has cropped up in trade talks.
The Sacramento Kings' relationship with their better players is at a bit of a low, with DeMarcus Cousins and Rudy Gay seemingly being put off by some recent decisions from the franchise that finished with a 33-49 record last year.
The Kings may be close to actually Gay and, according to some reports, the 29-year-old sees Miami and the Heat as an optimal landing spot.
"According to an associate, the Heat is among teams that very much appeal to Sacramento forward Rudy Gay, who has been available in trades," Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald wrote recently.
Unfortunately for Miami, however, there appears to be some certain circumstances that could block a move for the former 8th overall pick.
"But Miami likely lacks the tradeable assets to acquire him if it wanted to and his $14.2 million player option for 2017-18 is worrisome. Players signed this month in free agency cannot be traded until Dec. 15."
Gay turns 30 this month and signed a three-year, $40-million extension back in 2014. He averaged 17.2 points and 6.5 rebounds on 46.3% shooting last season for Sacramento.
