Lance Stephenson of the Charlotte Hornets

Brendan Haywood of the Cleveland Cavaliers

Brendan Haywood is a 35-year-old center currently playing for the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Haywood has two years left on his contract; however, his last year is a non-guaranteed year. If the Heat were to acquire Haywood and release him before August 1st of 2015, they would have no dead money on their hands. This essentially means that Haywood can be acquired on what is essentially a one-year deal.

The 7-footer has played in just five games this season and is being used to fill a roster spot at this point. Haywood does not fit into the Cavs’ future plans and they would love to get rid of him.

The 12-year NBA veteran has never been a true offensive option but he possesses size, experience and an expiring contract. He is owed just $2.2 million this season.

If used correctly, Haywood could be used as a defensive presence in certain situations. The Heat have done this in recent years with players with limited skills such as Greg Oden, Joel Anthony and Jamaal Magloire.
