I think you either have to give them Hinrich or something like Nocioni + Noah... as you said, trading Wade for Rose/Mayo straight up makes no sense for Miami, Wade is a franchise guy and the others are unproven draft picks. Plus you need to make the salaries work.
I just can't see how Wade and Deng would compliment each other enough to compete at all.
