While the Heat are attempting to re-piece their roster after losing LeBron James to Cleveland, they have brought in Luol Deng, Josh McRoberts, and Danny Granger. According to Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald, the team has shown interest in free agents Emeka Okafor and Ekpe Udoh.

The team has reportedly also talked with Andray Blatche, Jason Maxiell, and Elton Brand earlier in the offseason.

Among power rotation players, the Heat has shown interest in Emeka Okafor and has considered Ekpe Udoh. Preliminary inquiries were made on Andray Blatche and Jason Maxiell. Agent David Falk said he talked to the Heat about Elton Brand but that Brand is unlikely to end up here.

Per Jackson, the Heat are “serious about adding another shooting guard.”

The Heat is serious about adding another shooting guard and a big man if it can find two good ones willing to take the veteran’s minimum. After recently working out Jordan Hamilton (who signed with Toronto) and Chris Douglas-Roberts, the Heat also has inquired about Leandro Barbosa and Jordan Crawford, who both hold appeal to Miami.
