The Miami Heat have a lot of cap space to play with when it comes to convincing the Big 3 to return to South Beach and it appears that the team is ready to make big moves on big free agents.
After reaching out to former Chicago Bulls and Cleveland Cavaliers forward Luol Deng, the Miami Heat have also reportedly reached out to free agent guard Kyle Lowry and are expected to meet with him tomorrow.

The Heat have long been connected to Lowry in free agency so this interest right away at the start of the eligible period comes as no surprise. Lowry will have interest in Oklahoma City as well as back home in Toronto but the Heat are an undeniable favorite to land him if they can make it work financially.
Miami needs to account for the Big 3 returning and while they want to put together the most attractive roster as possible, they have to remember they can’t break the bank convincing LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh to return if it means running out of money to pay them.
