The Miami Heat have signed a lot of young players and veterans this season that are basically ‘saving’ them right now, as it’s unlikely the Heat would even be in the playoffs with most of these guys not on the team. With the Heat’ 2015 1st round pick likely being taken by the Philadelphia 76ers, the Heat may need to sign some of the following players below to keep some talent on their roster without a 1st rounder to build off of.
When the Heat signed Beasley for the remainder of the season coming off of two ten-day contracts, the Heat also added in a team option for the 2015-2016 season on whether or not they want to keep Beasley. The Heat will have to June 29th to pick up the option on Beasley for the 2015-2016 season, and if they don’t he will become an unrestricted free agent on July 1st.
The Heat will have till August 1st to decide on Tyler Johnson’s future with the Heat for the 2015-2016 season. Johnson is averaging 6.5 points and 2.3 rebounds per game this season with his career high in points being 26 points back on March 2nd.
While James Ennis is signed by the Heat through the 2016-2017 season, there are other options in his contract finical wise and if he plays in the NBA’s Summer League or not. Those other options will be decided by the Heat this off-season.
Just like Michael Beasley, Henry Walker was on two ten-day contracts with the Heat before being signed for the rest of the season by the team. The Heat will have till August 1st to decided on whether or not Walker will be back next season or not.
For the Heat this off-season, Goran Dragic, Dwyane Wade, and Luol Deng all have a player option in their contract to opt-out of their contract this off-season. Chris Bosh, Mario Chalmers, Chris Andersen, Josh McRoberts, Udonis Haslem, Zoran Dragic, and Shabazz Napier are all under guaranteed contracts next season. Hassan Whiteside is on a non-guaranteed deal for the 2015-2016 season.
