It could be financial limitations , but could also be for other reasons
This is most likely. Many quality players won't have the opportunity to earn income like the top tier players when their careers are done. Makes sense to maximize their earnings now...not a personal decision so much as a smart financial one. I don't think Lowry or Deng would think of themselves as an "add on" as Wade is half the player he was, so whomever they get will have to compete and contribute with the expectations they will be playing for the title.

I like Deng the most for the Heat but I'm biased.
