The Miami Heat have six players under contract for next season and that includes one player with a non-guaranteed contract. That means that Pat Riley has plenty of work to do in either keeping his team together or retooling it to a contender.
Sure, there are a lot of question marks when it comes to the status of Chris Bosh and his health, but let's put that aside and look at the pure nature of who's in and who's out on this team.
|Player||Age||15'16 (millions)||16'17 (millions)||PPG|
|Briante Weber||23||$30,877||$874,363 (NG)||2.0|
We can all agree that Dwyane Wade will be back, it's just a matter of what price. I also believe that Udonis Haslem will be back at the veteran's minimum. I have no reason to believe Riley wants to leave a team captain in the dust when he has sacrificed for this team.
Beyond that, there are some big questions to be answered when it comes to the status of Luol Deng, Joe Johnson and even Hassan Whiteside. Whiteside will demand a $22 million max deal from somewhere. I don't know if Miami will want to match that or not. Some of that may depend on whether Riley strikes gold, silver or bronze in free agency. He will likely get a room with some of the big names, whether they come here or not is a question.
Miami certainly has some work to do to fill out their roster this off-season. Now we want your initial thoughts about what they should do!
