As the Feb. 9 NBA trade deadline nears, the Miami Heat are running out of time to improve their lineup. After a slow start to the season, the Heat have found some footing, winning 14 of their last 21 games. If Pat Riley and the Miami front office believe the team is worth investing in, then now is the time to strike a deal.

The Heat has been associated with many players over the past month and a half. They were most recently linked to the Portland Trailblazers’ Josh Hart. On the January 24 edition of the Lowe Post Podcast, host Zach Lowe was joined by ESPN’s Bobby Marks. Lowe discussed the possibility of Miami outsmarting Hart.

“Josh Hart is a name that’s really, really hot right now. A lot of teams would like Josh Hart. I think Miami will probably express an interest in Josh Hart. He’s a Heat guy. heat kinda guy.”

That Miami might be interested in Hart wasn’t the only rumor that surfaced on Jan. 24. The other name associated with trade speculation was veteran heat guard Kyle Lowry.

The Ringer’s Kevin O’Connor has hinted that the Los Angeles Clippers may be interested in making a move for the former Toronto Raptors star. In a Jan. 24 article, he detailed LA’s potential trade targets.

Lowry’s season wasn’t what the Heat expected when they brought him in, but that doesn’t mean he didn’t have some solid games. The most recent was Miami’s 100-96 win over the New Orleans Pelicans. The aging star scored 9 straight points in the fourth quarter to seal victory for the Heat.

After the game, both Bam Adebayo and Tyler Herro had some kind words about their teammate.

“You could see his life growing. I know it sounds crazy, but as a basketball player, it’s one of those things that we call a heat check, when you come in nine in a row… It’s just one of those things where the basket looks like the sea,” Adebayo said media via Bally Sports Sun: Heat.

“I thought it was good to see,” Herro said via Bally Sports Sun: Heat. “You know Kyle, he can do that anytime he really wants to… He’s a seasoned vet, he’s closed a lot of games, a lot of big games, and right now he’s just choosing to move away from me, Bam, and Jimmy ( Butler) to distinguish. But there are many opportunities ahead where he can be aggressive and he knows it and we all know he can and still is capable of it.”
