Summer is coming, which means the Heat will be trolling for stars to stuff onto the USS Larry O'Brien. This two-year roster tweak will most likely continue until the day championships merely fall into their collective lap; there is no such thing as 'too easy.' So what kind of potential haul can the Heat expect?
With the budget they currently have the best they can offer is a mid-level exception, which means whomever hops aboard will likely be doing so at discount rate. In this vein, there will always be an incentive for over-the-hill stars without a title to join a contending team in order to make one last push at that elusive ring.
Please bear in mind: Jason Kidd, Tim Duncan, Ray Allen and Kevin Garnett are free agents this summer, but this list will assume that, having each been crowned champion already, they don't need to lower themselves to ring-chasing in South Beach.
