Default Wade, Riley not interested in rebuilding via draft

Wade Quote:
"We're looking to come into next summer and really do some things," Wade said. "Whatever we do in the draft is what we do, but we're looking to get veteran guys."

Riley Quote:
"We're going to turn this around as fast as we can," Riley said."

"In the race to catch Boston and Detroit, Miami (9-42) likely is looking at a two- or three-year rebuilding job. That's because the Heat has salary cap/luxury tax constraints and a roster that doesn't have much to offer in another monster trade."

"Unfortunately for the Heat, there's no proven model for a quick turnaround."

Its going to be an interesting off season, and Marion's decision is the key.

They can say what they want, but they are definitly rebuilding. They will have cap space, but not the kind of money big free agents are looking for. That is of course if Marion decides to run out the rest of his contract. If Marion plays the last year of his contract, then we probablly won't be able to make any big moves. Of course, with Pat Riley, anything can happen.
