Shams Charania reported that the Miami Heat have emerged as a suitor for 36-year-old swingman Andre Igoudala, with the trade deadline just two days away.

After being traded from the Golden State Warriors to the Memphis Grizzlies, Iguodala has not played one game this season. Reports have linked him to joining a championship-contending team like the Los Angeles Lakers from the beginning of the season. Although Iguodala is 36, he still could offer value for Miami as a perimeter defender, especially with Justise Winslow in the midst of an injury-plagued season.

Iguodala is on an expiring contract worth $17.2 million this season. James Johnson and Dion Waiters figure to be involved in such a swap. And although Johnson and Waiters may not have much trade value, the alternative may be Iguodala sitting out the rest of the season.
