A quick look at how the new Miami Heat roster took shape

The NBA’s undisputed winner of "Free Agency 2010" was the Miami Heat who netted all three of the top free agents in a star-studded crowd. But there was quite a few other roster spots to fill so here’s a quick look back at how the roster took shape and quickly see who’s in and who’s out. 2009-2010 roster: Dwyane Wade, Joel Anthony, Carlos Arroyo, Michael Beasley, Daequan Cook, Yakhoube Diawara, Udonis Haslem, Jamaal Magloire, Jermaine O’Neal, Quentin Richardson, Dorell Wright, James Jones, Shavlik Randolph, Kenny Hasbrouck, Mario Chalmers. Key losses: Michael Beasley (traded on July 12th to Minnesota for 2011, 2014 second round picks, cash), Daequan Cook (traded on June 23rd to OKC Thunder along with #18 pick, Eric Bledsoe for the #32 pick, Dexter Pittman), Jermaine O’Neal (signed with Boston Celtics), Dorell Wright (signed with Golden State Warriors), Quentin Richardson (signed with Orlando Magic).
