Heat in recent years

After the departure of LeBron James back to the Cleveland Cavaliers, the rebuild was centered around D Wade and Chris Bosh. However after finishing with a record of 37-45, the Heat decided to select Justise Winslow as the 10th pick during the NBA draft. The following season, Heat finished with a record of 48-34 and reached the semifinals in the playoffs. Despite making the postseason, there were too many contractual issues involving Wade which led him to move to Chicago Bulls.

Wade eventually returned from the Cleveland Cavaliers as Bosh had medical issues due to which he was forced into retirement. The franchise traded for Jimmy Butler in 2019 for Josh Richardson and have decided to build around the young core of Duncan Robinson, Bam Adebayo and Tyler Herro. The team, led by Jimmy Butler, made it to the 2020 NBA Finals but lost to the LA Lakers in six games. The 2020-2021 Heat Season was derailed by injuries, COVID, and a short offseason. They were swept by the Bucks in the first round. With the acquisition of Kyle Lowry in the 2021 offseason, the Heat look to hoist another challenge for the title.
