5 Big Men The Miami Heat Could Trade For This Season

5. Brandon Bass (PF/C) – Boston Celtics

Brandon Bass of the Boston Celtics

We complete the list with yet another productive player in a losing situation. The Celtics appear to have half of its roster in trade talks, including Bass, who enters unrestricted free agency after this season. Bass is no spring chicken at 29 years of age, but he has averaged five-plus rebounds per game over the past four seasons (three with Boston). Whether he comes off the bench (like this season) or earns a starting role alongside Bosh, Bass has a motor that excites his head coach and keeps opposing forwards on their toes. He’s slightly undersized at the power forward spot (6’8”), but he makes up for it with energy and hustle. Bass would already be an upgrade over journeyman Shawne Williams in the paint and could come cheap (possibly a second-round pick or two). Shooting 49 percent from the field and 83 percent from the line for his career, Bass will make a mark on the stat sheet, especially in the rebounding column as a true power forward and frontcourt presence.
