ESPN reports that the Miami Heat have targeted free agent shooter Anthony Morrow as they attempt to upgrade their team around the Big 3 with limited cap space.

Morrow is a shooter in the purest sense of the word, but also has defensive issues. He's struggled to get floor time in multiple stops, be it for defensive reasons or other complications. He's a long body and a crack shooter at a 43 percent career three-point mark. He shot 45 percent from three while averaging eight points per game for the Pelicans last season.

With the Big 3 taking up most of the cap space behind LeBron James' expected max contract, and with Kyle Lowry and Marcin Gortat already off the table and Luol Deng and Trevor Ariza reportedly out of their price range, Morrow's the level of player the Heat could be looking to add to "improve" their team from last season, which is what may prove so challenging as the Heat try and stay contenders and improve over the team that lost in five games to San Antonio.
