Most important targets for the Heat: 1. Gabe Vincent
Short of being able to get Damian Lillard this off-season, this is the best ball-handler and point-guard starter that the team could get. Vincent excelled in the postseason as a volume scorer and was part of the reason that they ended up making the Eastern Conference finals.
Some of those numbers may not be realistic for him to repeat next year. Still, he will be able to produce secondary offense for the Heat next season.
If they have to end up replacing him this off-season, the Heat could look to sign Derrick Rose to replace his scoring. Rose would have to take a huge discount to end up with the Heat but this would be a very smart decision for the team. The Heat were interested in making a trade with the Knicks before he and New York ended up splitting up.
