07:51 AM ET 11.28 | The Heat's approach is not going to change this offseason just because of some silly limitations written into a collective bargaining agreement that's meant to silence the big bullies of the NBA. There will be no small moves for the sake of filling holes. At least not until Pat Riley has explored every option of filling those voids with major players. So why would he shy away from Nene in free agency? Or Steve Nash via trade? Or any other significant name that either fills the desperate needs at point guard and center or on a bench that was criticized for most of last season? This is still Miami, after all. This remains the destination of choice for any player with championship aspirations.

Nash needs a new home, the Suns are awful.

Um, they have no money or trade bait. Seems pretty simple.to.me but sure. Nobody will take Chrissy Bosh in a deal and I don't see them trading the other two so exactly how r they going to add any big names with no hope of trading and no money. *scratches head*

He's not selfish enough to play for the Heat

I would like to see Nash in Miami. He could even make Eddy Curry serviceable...

Selfish, but they all took less money to play together? Ridiculous.
How do you block people on this site? Ha ha.

Another Heat fan with both guns blazing before the season even starts. Where will you be when they lose again in the playoffs because of their selfish style of basketball?

Most likely enough to support Latrell Spreewell's children

In the neighborhood of 16 million a piece. While I acknowledge that the big 3 aren't playing for peanuts, they are playing at a discount.

Keep dreaming! You'd think these star players would play for free or be a slave to the Heatles? This really laughable!

So Chris Bosh can't buy 2 extra cars or pay that extra child support payment....man the sacrifices some of these guys make!

I always thought that sharing the ball with other stars was unselfish...but hey, you learn something new everyday.

In comparison, Kobe's salary is nearly half of the teams cap. This is why the Lakers would probably give Bynum AND Gasol in a trade for Howard.
Taking less money allowed all three of them to sign, and allows them future cap flexibility.
