3. Improved Outside-Shooting
The Heat had a pretty miserable summer overall, but they were able to address one concern that has plauged them in the post-LeBron James era: shooting. The Heat were one of the worst outside-shooting teams in the league last year (27th in 3-point shooting). Pat Riley was able to bring in some much-needed shooting help this summer.
Along with Josh Richardson, the addition of Luke Babbitt, a career 40.3 percent 3-point shooter, and Wayne Ellington, a career 37.6 percent 3-point shooter, should provide some reliable outside threats for the Heat. With the amount of attention Whiteside will command in the paint, these shooters will have a lot of opportunities to capitalize.
