The Miami Heat, even as a perennial championship contender, need to be looking at ways to improve their team in the offseason.  

Right now they are relying on unbelievable play from LeBron James and, to an extent, Dwayne Wade.  In addition, they are fortunate enough to have played a weak New York Knicks team, a good Indiana Pacers team that lacks a closer and a banged up Boston Celtics squad (and not the Chicago Bulls).

Despite the relative success that they are now enjoying, and looking like the clear favorite to win the Eastern Conference for the second consecutive year, it is very easy to spot some glaring weaknesses which could derail their championship hopes yet again.

Having LeBron and Wade, in addition to a healthy Chris Bosh, helps to mask a lot of those shortcomings, but Miami's lack of depth is frightening.  Sometimes, their lack of offensive creativity is as well.

Further, when you consider how many wide open three-pointers are missed by the supporting cast over the course of a season, it would make most sense for Miami, over everything else, to go for a shooter (or two) that will take advantage of all the open looks.  Sure, Mario Chalmers and Mike Miller do get hot sometimes, but not enough given the quality of shots that they get so often.

Here are five shooters that Miami could potentially pursue via offseason deals or free agency.
