NBA Free Agents: 5 Veterans Who Can Help the Miami Heat Win a Title

As far as proving just how far three of the league's most dominant players could get on one team before being stopped, the trio of LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, and Chris Bosh nearly ran the table before coming two wins short of an NBA title in their first year together. The only problem with this situation was that a team effort was needed to secure a title and the Heat didn't get that out of a lackluster and injured supporting cast.

Whether it was Mike Bibby constant postseason struggles or Joel Anthony being Joel Anthony, the Heat were out of luck at the starting point guard and center positions. The bench was no better as an injured Mike Miller and Udonis Haslem proved to be the most reliable with Mario Chalmers also picking up some slack and actually earning a starting spot at the point guard position for next season.

What the Heat need over the next few seasons as a means to secure another title is to give the big three some support. The trio proved that they could co-exist and lead a team, but they also proved that some help from their supporting cast is necessary and that this one isn't going to cut it. Haslem and Miller being injured showed the NBA world that there are still flaws and that this years free agency class will be needed to help bolster this Heat roster.

Point guard, center, and the depth of the bench will all be keys to look to and these five veterans will help address each of those issues.
