The Miami Heat surprised many people by rebounding well at the end of the season, pushing into the playoffs, and making it all the way to the NBA Finals.
Despite that success, the team might still be losing some key players very soon.
According to Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald, via NBACentral, Gabe Vincent’s return to the team is in jeopardy.

Vincent had a playoff run that he should be very proud of.
During the regular season, he produced 9.4 points, 2.1 rebounds, and 2.5 assists.
But during the playoffs, he increased that to 12.7 points and 3.5 assists.
He had several great nights during the postseason, including one game when he scored 29 points on the Boston Celtics.
Vincent isn’t the most pivotal player for the Heat but his absence would definitely be felt.
That’s because the team got as far as they did since they had such a deep roster they could rely on.
Vincent, along with several other players, all chipped in, contributed, and made such success possible.
It’s not clear where he would go if he decides to move on from Miami.
But after the postseason he just had, several teams would be looking to sign him.
There are a few men on the Heat roster who are being eyed by other teams, such as Tyler Herro and Max Strus.
It is not entirely clear how many of them will be dealt away.
It’s also not clear what sort of impact that will have on the current Eastern Conference champions.NEXT: The Heat Are Reportedly Likely To Lose 1 Key Free Agent
