How The Heat Were Built

Earlier today, we took a look at how the Oklahoma City Thunder constructed their roster, breaking down how each player on the team was acquired. Now, let's turn our attention to the Miami Heat, a team that was built very differently than the Thunder — whereas Oklahoma City focused primarily on the draft and trades, the Heat's major splash famously occurred in the summer of 2010. Here's a look at how Miami added the players on its 2011/12 roster, in chronological order:

Dwyane Wade: Drafted with the fifth overall pick in 2003. Signed a four-year extension in 2006 and a six-year extension in 2010.
Udonis Haslem: Signed a two-year deal as a free agent (August 6, 2003). Signed a five-year extension in 2005 and another five-year extension in 2010.
Joel Anthony: Signed a two-year deal as a free agent (July 3, 2007). Re-signed in 2009 and eventually signed a five-year contract in 2010.
Mario Chalmers: Acquired from the Timberwolves for cash and two second-round picks (June 26, 2008). Signed a three-year extension in 2011.
James Jones: Signed a five-year deal as a free agent (July 9, 2008). Bought out and re-signed in 2010 before signing a three-year contract in 2011.
Dexter Pittman: Drafted with the 32nd overall pick in 2010.

Juwan Howard: Signed a one-year deal as a free agent (July 20, 2010). Signed another one-year deal in 2011.
