By no means are the Miami Heat done tweaking their roster for the upcoming NBA season.
It also appears that they are interested in accumulating more draft picks they can use in the future.
“In the last 18 hours, the HEAT have been discussing several trade scenarios to acquire additional draft picks according to league sources. This may end up being one of their more creative processes if they find a way.”

The Heat have been one of the NBA’s best teams since the arrival of Jimmy Butler three years ago, and in that time, they have appeared in the Eastern Conference Finals twice and in the NBA Finals once.
But they’ve been unable to get over the hump, and a big reason why is that the team lacks next-level offensive firepower other than that of Butler.
It’s presumably the reason they’re trying to go after Durant and Mitchell this summer.
