NBA Draft 2012: 5 Bold Ideas for the Miami Heat's No. 27 Pick

The Miami Heat have the 27th pick in the 2012 NBA Draft. If they want to stay amongst the NBA elite, they will have to add a few parts.

The Heat's biggest need is an athletic center. Chris Bosh is better as a power forward, and Udonis Haslem is better off the bench. A center who is strong defensively and can provide some offense is much needed.

In addition, the Heat would like to add a versatile wingman in the mold of Shane Battier. If they can get someone who can score, while also spelling LeBron James and Dwayne Wade, they'll be happy.

The 27th pick usually does not feature top talent, but there have been some good players taken in that slot.

Previous 27th picks include Dennis Rodman, John Salmons and Kendrick Perkins.

If the Heat can add either an athletic big man or a versatile swingman, it'll be a success.

We'll give you five bold selections the Heat can make to improve their team.
