MIKE CUGNO: Made a few moves. It was a very active day for Pat Riley and the front office. Kyle Lowry staying with the Raptors, but the Heat still land Victor Oladipo. Oladipo is about to play for his fifth team in eight seasons, but he is a two time All-Star averaging 20 points a night. According to Shams Charania of The Athletic, the Heat are sending Kelly Olynyk, Avery Bradley, and a draft swap to Houston.

Now, Miami may be adding a big man as well. According to ESPN, LaMarcus Aldridge completed a buyout with his Spurs. The Heat appear to be his likely destination. Now, the Heat got better today without giving up young pieces like Tyler Herro, Kendrick Nunn, and Duncan Robinson. They also added Nemanja Bjelica, a power forward out of Sacramento, for Chris Silva and Moe Harkless. His nickname is Professor Big-Shots. Big shots, that's plural, so that's good. Eliott and Lauren, back to you.

ELIOTT RODRIGUEZ: Hope he makes those big shots.

LAUREN PASTRANA: We want to see a lot of those. Absolutely.
