I was thinking how the Bulls want Wade so badly. I was also wondering how the Heat could become contenders without Chris Bosh. If the Heat do sign Boozer which is likely, he will have to play center unless the Heat resign Jermaine O'neal and and Beasely will then be sf. I thought of the roster and even with Boozer, I think the Heat would not be able to beat Cleveland, Orlando, or Atlanta. So they would be a top 5 team in the East, but not really big contenders. I thought that instead of trying to build a contender through free agency, why not build through trades and through the draft. I think the Heat could get Joakim Noah, Luol Deng, and get 2010 and 2011 first round picks from Chicago for Wade. Then they could sign Tyrus Thomas and since they need a guard Manu Ginobli
sixth man Manu
They could also fill their bench with two top 20 picks.
Beasely, Chalmers, Deng, and Noah will make up the young core.
Beasely with Wade gone can lead the team and become a star as the main scoring option. With more touches, he could be a 20+ score, 8 rebounds, 1 block guy.
Chalmers could become a 15 and 6 assist guy. He would be like Jameer Nelson.
Hopefully Cook can come out of his shooting slump and be a sharpshooter for the heat.
Denge is a great rebounder, defender, and a solid scorer.
Noah is one of the leagues best defenders and rebounders, and is developing a low post game.
This team could probably make the playoffs and will only get better as the young core improves.
