Five Big Name Free Agents the Miami Heat Could Target in 2016

4. Chandler Parsons (Dallas Mavericks)

The lanky stretch four has a player option next summer worth over $16 million, but with salary-cap inflation, he could probably get more in free agency.

Though he shoots the three-ball very effectively (.373 percent for his career), Parsons is not just a spot-up shooter — he can bring the ball up the court, set up the offense, create his own shot and drive or slash to the basket.

In his first season with the Mavericks (he started his career in Houston, where he was drafted out of the University of Florida), Parsons averaged 15.7 points per game on 46% shooting. His defense is unspectacular, but with Parsons, it is his offensive game that makes him a tough matchup for opponents, especially since his sneaky athleticism makes him an all-around threat to score.

A front court trio of Parsons, Bosh and Whiteside — with Dragic and Wade in the backcourt — could give the Heat enough length and firepower to ascend into the elite of the Eastern Conference.
