Can Pat Riley and the Heat Pull Off the Blockbuster Trade for Westbrook?

The Miami Heat have made quite a splash this NBA off season. The Heat acquired All-Star Jimmy Butler from the Sixers without trading away their future. Jimmy Butler at his best is a top 15 player in the league so the trade was a no-brainer. The Heat traded a 1st round pick, along with Hassan Whiteside who had had hit his ceiling in Miami and Josh Richardson.

Now the Heat are rumored to be interest in former league MVP Russell Westbrook. Pat Riley seems to have a few tricks up his sleeves to make this team a contender for the fans. Pat Riley is 74 year old and if this is his last shot to win a championship, i believe he'll take it. If the Heat were to add Russell Westbrook, it takes this team from a playoff team to a contender to win the Eastern Conference. Miami fans are dying for excitement from any sports team, and Pat Riley to comes to rescue again. We shouldn't be surprised.
