Following a rather uneventful offseason period, here are five predictions for the Miami Heat for the upcoming 2018-19 season.

With the re-signing of franchise legend Dwyane Wade, the Heat finally put an end to what was a rather underwhelming offseason. While they weren’t widely expected to land a big fish in free agency, the secondary expectation was for the Heat to shed some salary in order to open up the free agency market in the seasons to come.
