Currently operating at 13 players, two below the league maximum, the Heat are required by NBA rule to add at least one player by Sunday.
Miami had been going with a shortened roster due to the possibility of avoiding the punitive NBA luxury tax. However, with Kelly Olynyk this week locking in his $1 million bonus for playing at least 1,700 minutes, the tax is no longer a factor. If the playoffs are the priority, the Heat could add two veterans that would qualify for the postseason roster. Alternatively, they could also convert the two-way contracts of Duncan Robinson and Yante Maten to standard contracts, making them playoff-eligible. The final option is to fill out their roster with prospects on contracts that include non-guaranteed pay beyond this season. Stay tuned.
