If Mullens can play big man defense (did a little bit last year) then he'd actually be a good fit. A stretch 5 or even stretch 4 who won't clog the lane, is a decent rebounder, can block shots, and might be a solid defender.
Anthony gives the best opportunity for fast break points with his blocking ability. Plus, he's great at defending the pick and roll and chasing the corner 3 man down. The Heat needs his energy because everyone acts like old farts now outside of Lebron and the point guards.
