Five Reasons the Miami Heat Should Hold on to Mario Chalmers
- Updated: November 7, 2015
5. Lack of Experience Behind Goran Dragic
There isn’t any experience in regards to the point guards that are behind Goran Dragic.
The three guards on the depth chart behind Dragic are Chalmers, second-year man Tyler Johnson and rookie Josh Richardson. Richardson has played just seven total minutes for the Heat through the first five games of the season.
While Johnson is in his second year, this is his first year as a point guard. During his rookie season last year, the Heat lined him up primarily at shooting guard.
Though Johnson has looked good in a little over 14 minutes per game, he still remains largely a score-first guard.
Chalmers can play both the scoring role and playmaker role depending on what Miami needs out of him on a game-to-game basis.
All things considered, if the Heat want to truly contend for a championship in 2015-16, Chalmers remains the team’s best viable option at backup point guard.
