The NBA trade deadline wasn’t the last chance that teams had to make a move before the Mach 1st deadline. That’s the day when players must be waived to become eligible for postseason rosters, and there are some notable names about to start floating around.
Last year, the Miami Heat picked up Chris Andersen at the deadline, which proves just how important picking up a bought put player can be and the Heat seem to be at it again. In addition to being interested in Glen Davis and Danny Granger, Sam Amick from USA Today reports that Shannon Brown is on the Heat’s radar, as well as that of the Chicago Bulls and New York Knicks.

Picking up a player at the buyout deadline can be critical to winning a title or at least making a deep run, something that the Heat proved last year. There’s no guarantee that Brown can lock down a title on his own but if put in the right system he may become part of something special.
