The NBA trade deadline is fast approaching and one team we may still hear more out of are the Miami Heat. Despite being back-to-back NBA champions, the Heat are currently wheeling and dealing to build up their roster to ensure a three-peat indeed happens.
Miami picked up Toney Douglas in a three-team trade on Wednesday that sent Joel Anthony and draft picks to the Boston Celtics. Later in the day, we also learned that the Heat tried to make a play for Toronto Raptors guard Kyle Lowry. According to Heat beat writer Ethan J. Skolnick, Miami may not be done making moves.
Pat Riley did say that he would be meeting with his personnel people about a lot of things, looking for pieces.

This doesn’t mean that the Heat are for sure going to make more trades, as it was pointed out yesterday that they have very little to offer when it comes to bringing in a big name. But it’s clear that the Heat are still looking for more players to add, which will circle most discussions back to the Andrew Bynum rumors.
