ASK IRA: Have Heat been negligent with their depth at point guard?

A: It’s one thing to do what the Heat did last season, in starting Kendrick Nunn and having Goran Dragic in reserve. At least there was a 1 and 1A in the rotation. But the difference between the Heat’s starting point guard and the backup might be as stark as any point in the Heat’s history, going back to the Tim Hardaway era. Granted, Gabe Vincent wasn’t solely on the ball against the Pacers. But the system has changed to become point-guard dominant. So, all of a sudden, Jimmy Butler was advancing the ball Saturday, Bam Adebayo was stationed back at the elbow. And the thing is, Kyle Lowry will miss more time. That’s what happens with 35 year olds. So, yes, it seemingly would have made sense to have another veteran point guard in reserve. That’s not Marcus Garrett. It’s not Caleb Martin. It’s not Vincent. It’s someone not currently on the Heat roster.
