This union of sorts between three "brothers from another mother" could aid the Heat front office in securing Wade beyond 2010 if they keep it intact. Of course, much more talent beyond Richardson and Wright would be required to accomplish this goal, but it could definitely be an additional incentive. We know that the Heat will do everything in their power to keep Wade around, and have attempted to satisfy him towards that end. But will they consider bringing back two of his closest comrades next season?
It's clear that these two players may not be Miami's answer to title contention, but they could fill in the need for viable and affordable role players in what's set to be a contract heavy roster. At least we now know that Richardson and Wright would be a unifying element in the revamped Heat roster. And cohesion is essential to championship success.
