Since the team has needs across the board, two wing players and one big man were included in the list. The three Ding names brings up are Luol Deng, Wesley Matthews, and Kosta Koufos. Deng has a player option for 2015-16 and has yet to indicate if he will opt-in and return to the Miami Heat. As for Matthews and Koufos, the two are unrestricted free agents.
