Jrue Holiday has been a staple in NBA trade rumors since Shams Charania's recent report, which revealed the New Orleans Pelicans are open to talks with other teams about the 30-year-old. The Miami Heat are reportedly one of the numerous parties interested.

Holiday is one of the best defensive guards in the NBA and can defend positions one through five, something that the Miami Heat will be desperate to obtain. Additionally, his ability to switch between the role of facilitator and high volume scorer could take the Miami Heat's offense to new heights.

Given Jrue Holiday's remarkable talent, it is no surprise that the Pelicans star has fielded interest from several contenders. With the Heat aiming go one step further next year, they must prioritize the acquisition of Jrue this off-season.

#2 Victor Oladipo

Despite the Indiana Pacers stalling on negotiations, NBA trade rumors have continued to link star Victor Oladipo to a multitude of franchises, and the Miami Heat are reportedly at the front of the line.

While the 28-year-old has only just returned from injury, he has been recovering at a rapid rate and has experts believing he could yet return to All-Star form. If the Miami Heat choose to believe in him, not only will they have an almost unstoppable force on offense, but also an irritant on the defensive end of the floor.

Given how dominant Victor Oladipo can be, if this risk were to pan out, the Miami Heat would be undeniable favorites to win it all during the 2020-21 season.

#1 Giannis Antetokounmpo

Coming out on top of our list, we have the two-time reigning MVP and Defensive player of the year, Giannis Antetokounmpo.

The 25-year-old would instantly raise the Miami Heat from contenders to championship favorites. He is an absolute terror on defense, denying the opposition a bucket almost every time he is in position, while he is one of the most dominant offensive forces in the entire league.

With the Miami Heat saving up cap-space in order to acquire the Greek Freak, this is a blockbuster move that could realistically happen in the near future.
