The Miami Heat have reached out to restricted free agent Lance Stephenson, according to a report from ESPN's Dan LeBatard.

The Heat's interest in adding the shooting guard may come as a surprise to some after Stephenson's antics as a member of the Indiana Pacers during last season's Eastern Conference Finals versus Miami, which included blowing into LeBron James' ear. Miami is currently working on trying to retain James, as well as other Big Three members Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh

The Pacers offered Stephenson a five-year, $44 million contract earlier this month in hopes of getting the 23-year-old to return to Indiana, but he reportedly was unhappy with the offer and has been exploring the market. The Los Angeles Lakers, Dallas Mavericks and Boston Celtics have all also shown interest in the guard, according to ESPN's Chris Broussard
