The Miami Heat made a big move in the buyout market.
Knowing they needed to improve their roster, the Heat went out and signed Kevin Love who was bought out by the Cleveland Cavaliers.
Love is in the latter stages of his career, but he can still contribute to a winning team.
He played 41 games this season with the Cavs before being bought out.
His stats included 8.5 points and 6.8 rebounds per game, while also shooting 35% from three-point range.
The five-time all-star is 34 years old, so expecting him to make a massive difference for the Heat is foolish.
But, Love joins a team that made the Eastern Conference finals last year and could be back again.
Miami is currently in seventh in the East and has a record of 32-27.
One thing they need to do over the final stretch of the season is to stay healthy.
Especially their star player Jimmy Butler needs to be on the court.
Also, Butler and Love should be able to have plenty of success together.
Each is a high-IQ player, that should be able to feed off the other.
Love mentioned how he is excited to play with Butler and find a way to help the Heat win.
I asked Kevin Love about Jimmy Butler’s comfort in pick and pops, and how those 2 man actions will run:

It will be interesting to see the role Love fills with the Heat.
Assuming he comes off the bench, how many minutes will he play?
He has always been a great rebounder despite being undersized.
As he enters the final few seasons of his career, doing whatever it takes to win should be all that matters.NEXT: Kevin Love Is Preparing For His Big Debut
