NBA Draft Results: Miami Heat Frees Up Cap for Dwyane Wade, LeBron James

There's no question that going into Thursday night's NBA Draft the Miami Heat's focus was to clear up even more cap space for the start of free agency on July 1.

It began on Wednesday night when the Heat traded guard Daequan Cook and the 18th pick to the Oklahoma City Thunder for the 32nd pick.

So while teams such as the Washington Wizards selected John Wall first overall, others like the Chicago Bulls traded away Kirk Hinrich to the Wizards to free up cap space as well.

Quite the gamble considering no one knows where key free agents like LeBron James, Chris Bosh, Joe Johnson and Dwyane Wade will go.

Best to have faith in Heat President Pat Riley.
