Heat make no picks in NBA draft

MIAMI (AP) For the second time in four years, the Miami Heat had no picks in the NBA draft.

An array of trades made in recent years - including the deal that officially sent LeBron James to Miami in 2010 - left the Heat with no selection.

The Heat also had no pick in 1996, 2006 and 2013.

With no draft additions, the Heat will do the bulk of their offseason work through free agency. Dwyane Wade, Hassan Whiteside, Luol Deng, Joe Johnson, Amare Stoudemire and Udonis Haslem are among the most notable Heat players who could become free on July 1.

Miami went 48-34 last season, reaching the Eastern Conference semifinals.
