NBA Rumors: Miami Heat could pursue signing Eric Bledsoe

The NBA offseason is now upon us as the Miami Heat failed to end up on the right side of history and have fizzled in the most surprising of ways. Now that their season is over, the Heat are going to look to figure out what went wrong and how they can fix this roster so another collapse doesn’t occur in the 2014-15 season.

According to NBA scribe Chuck Myron, the Miami Heat may get bold this offseason and go hard after a big free agent to help heal the wounds of their NBA Finals loss and to make a statement that this era of the Heat is not yet over.

Eric Bledsoe and LeBron share the same agent, but the Suns seem intent on matching any offer he gets. Really, though, it’s tough to count out anyone, since the Heat are about as attractive as they come for free agents. So, in other words, don’t be surprised to see a surprise guy in Miami this summer.

Bledsoe is unlikely to be an option, although after compiling the Big 3 in 2010 we can never say never again with the Heat. A more likely option could be the Heat going after someone like Kyle Lowry or even Ramon Sessions to try and fill the void at point guard that Mario Chalmer surprisingly presented Miami in the Finals.

Either way, it appears that the Heat are going to look outside the team and outside the draft to find a guard to help them out and while Bledsoe is a home run swing if there ever was one, we can’t completely count it out.

  • Real M-Fing talk !!!

    Its players like these Miami need to focus on and not Melo unless Wade and Bosh take a major cut in pay as they should…. Bledsoe is worth 25 Chalmers and 30 Coles… Lebron has never played with a point guard in his career but you are right i cannot see Bledsoe landing in south beach and to be honest Kyle is looking for big time money, 10-15 range i would think… way too much for the Heat ! and Kyle’s game is hit or miss at times while Bledsoe’s is more is more consistent

    Maybe consider going after Patty Mills or just concede and let the rebuilding process begin. Wade is a shell of his former self, Bosh has taken a couple of steps back, and LeBron may or may not be back. His loyalty lies on a team having a chance to win a title. That isn’t Miami any more. Any of the 8 (maybe top 10) teams out west could have gone the distance with Miami

    Shaun Livingston from Brooklyn guaranteed……Heat have always loved him, big 6-7 , young and plays defense…..Heat will throw bucks at G.Monroe and L.Stephenson…..Wade of bench ala Manu next year….
