Buy or Sell? Get healthy, make a final pass on Bradley Beal

The Heat believe that when healthy, they’re as good as any team in the league. Their metrics and record reflect that. There’s no need to add talent just for the sake of adding it. I think Beal has been a target for Miami for a long time, and he fits what they’re doing. If they can avoid parting with Tyler Herro or Bam Adebayo in any Beal trade, I think the Heat pull the trigger. Otherwise, they’re contenders as currently constructed.
