The Miami Heat can be one of the more stacked teams in the NBA this season by having the perfect blend of youth and experience with a move that adds two seasoned vets to their artillery.
To set the context, the Heat was reported to have emerged as one of the suitors for former NBA champion, Kevin Love. Reports of the Cleveland Cavaliers close to a deal to buy out Love and make him a free agent.
Love is in the final year of his contract which pays him $28.9 million. Love is expected to sign with another franchise before the end of this season, and Miami is a frontrunner to land the 15-year-veteran.
Also linked to the Heat is Utah Jazz guard Russell Westbrook. The former Los Angeles Laker is one of the players expected to be bought out by the team, and the Heat have been named as interested parties along with the Chicago Bulls and the LA Clippers.
It should be worth noting that the two players may not have had the greatest of runs over the last couple of seasons, but they do have ample experience and the necessary skill set to bolster the Heat's chances of making a playoff and beyond push, while also taking the load of Jimmy Butler and Bam Adebayo.
