What's next for the Heat?
Since the trade deadline came and past with no moves, it's safe to assume that the Heat as presently composed will remain that way for the rest of the season. The Stoudemire trade apparently did not offer Phoenix what they truly wanted. We found out that there were talks with Utah for Boozer, but that trade also fell through. I am very glad that the Heat did not sell off Dorrell to the Grizzlies just to avoid the luxury tax. He is just starting to round into form. These next few games with Wade will be critical. Since Wade is injured, we will get a chance to see if Michael Beasley can be the leading scorer for winning team. If he can, it may help Spoelstra realize how important Beasley can be for the Heat. Also, that may prove to Wade and another free agent that Beasley could be an option on the new-look team this fall.
