The Miami Heat are going through a rough patch this year and it appears that they need to push through with an overhaul to help steer things in the right direction.

At the moment, the Heat are at the bottom of the Southeast Division with a 4-10 record and are coming off back-to-back defeats. It has been tough for the Heat and it seems that there are rumors again that players will be traded.

Talks are linking Goran Dragic to a move away from the team and it appears that his new destination is the Sacramento Kings. He is rumored to be traded for Rudy Gay and Willie Cauley-Stein. This is very interesting given that the three players have been constants in trade rumors.

For the Heat, Dragic has been in the news as the team is looking at a total overhaul due to the loss of some key personnel. Dragic was brought over to lead the Heat back when Dwyane Wade, Chris Bosh and Hassan Whiteside were expected to take charge.

At the moment, Whiteside is the only one left so many are considering a new face for the team.

Meanwhile, Gay has always been linked to a move away from the Kings as he awaits offers from other teams. There will surely be a lot of offers for Gay because he is a very capable player and has a lot to offer on the offensive and defensive end.

Lastly, Cauley-Stein seems like a budding player who would play great alongside DeMarcus Cousins in the frontline of the Kings. However, he has found playing time hard to come by as he apparently does not fit the mold of the Kings. As a result, looking for a new place to play might be what is best for him as he continues to grow in the league.
