Miami Heat rumors: Interest in Chris Douglas-Roberts

The Miami Heat brought back both Chris Bosh and Dwyane Wade, but they still need to fill out their bench. They’ve reportedly shown interest in multiple players including Leandro Barbosa, though may have their eyes on somebody else.

Back in July the Miami Heat were said to have some interest in free agent Chris Douglas-Roberts, though the two sides were never able to find middle ground on a deal. That’s likely due to the fact that CDR was hoping to secure himself a more lucrative contract, but interest in CDR has been limited outside of the Heat.

Now Miami is said to have interest in signing Chris Douglas-Roberts after they recently worked him out.

The Heat is serious about adding another shooting guard and a big man if it can find two good ones willing to take the veteran’s minimum. After recently working out Jordan Hamilton (who signed with Toronto) and Chris Douglas-Roberts, the Heat also has inquired about Leandro Barbosa and Jordan Crawford, who both hold appeal to Miami.

A former second-round pick, Chris Douglas-Roberts looked to be a rotational player with the Brooklyn Nets though struggled during his stint with the Milwaukee Bucks and later Dallas Mavericks. However, CDR seemed to rebound a bit last season with the Charlotte Bobcats (now Hornets) and could very well end up being a solid addition to the Miami Heat, especially given his versatility.

There are currently no talks regarding finances of a potential contract, though with no money it’s doubtful he’d get anything more than a league minimum deal.
