Last night, the Miami Heat made a trade with the Charlotte Hornets during the first round of the 2014 NBA Draft that helped them land UConn point guard Shabazz Napier. And it made LeBron James very, very happy. Within just minutes of them acquiring Napier, LeBron sent out this tweet:
My favorite player in the draft! #Napier— LeBron James (@KingJames) June 27, 2014
But if the Heat want to continue to improve their chances of re-signing LeBron this summer, they're going to have to continue to improve their roster. One thing they're reportedly thinking about doing to try and get better is attempting to acquire Kyle Lowry from the Toronto Raptors. And according to Bleacher Report's Ric Bucher, there a couple of ways that they could do that and one of them involves Chris Bosh opting out of his current contract and heading back to Toronto:

Would Bosh actually do this? That's obviously TBD. But it would definitely be interesting if he landed back in Toronto after leaving the Raptors in free agency a few years ago to team up with LeBron and Dwyane Wade in Miami. Stay tuned to see if this becomes anything more than just a rumor.
