    I think Miami needs to try and get a player to "force" his way to Miami. IE: Oladipo says trade me to Miami or lose me in free agency next year.

    To do this Miami just has to overachieve this season.
    I have a feeling that player could be beal.

    But do we have the cap for Giannis in this scenario?

    Jrue/Dragic
    Herro/Nunn
    Butler/Robinson
    Giannis/???
    Bam/Silva
    No we wonít. We would have to add Dragicís contract and add Ryan Andersonís $5 million. U all need to just enjoy this team as it is and stop trying to trade for every name that comes out. 🤦🏽*♂️

    Beal has a long term contract. He can't demand a trade, he has no leverage.

    Oladipo or another player with 1 or 2 years remaining is the target.

    I do believe Pat is going to make a trade, but I can't truly point my finger on who...?

    I don't even think about Beal anymore. He decided his future, good luck with that.

If Beas can be what he was when he was a rookie (he won't hell be better) then the heat are coming away with another steal.

    PG did, Beal definitely could. I donít think it would be until the end of next season though, which would actually be perfect timing if itís after FA.

    Iím really interested to see how Oladipo comes back because heís definitely a possibility. So much so that the Pacers are nervous heís coming here already.

    Do you see what Clippers gave up for a fully extended PG? We don't need to give up all that for Beal when we have Herro. Just like we don't really need Oladipo either, he's a SG.

    Herro is clearly the future at starting SG. And for the time being, Jimmy is the SF.

    This is why I tell everyone obsessed with 2021, we're basically waiting on 1 player. It's 1 player who's instantly make us favorites, but nonetheless you can't put 2 years in hold for that.

    Yeah that's the problem with the Giannis dreams. It would be incredible, and pairing him with Herro and Bam (and hopefully Justise but we dont need to have that fight ) who will be entering their primes, that would be spectacular. But, that would be at the expense of Jimmy. He's already 30 and has a lot of tread on those tires. He'll still be a key contributor that season but we're in his prime right now, and if we can put something together before that offseason to go and win a title, it would be hard to pass up on.

    Well Iím seeing us linked to Love ok twitter from some Heat ďinsidersĒ along with Brooklyn portland pacers Mavs and bucks. Would be shocked if this is true. I mean the only way taking love even makes sense is if we have another win now move in play to bring in another star along with him. Thatís the only way using 2021 cap makes any sense.

    Did Washington guard Bradley Beal consider Heat before signing extension? He answers
    BY BARRY JACKSON

    New York Knicks forward RJ Barrett (9) defends Washington Wizards guard Bradley Beal (3) during the first half of a preseason game on Oct. 11.
    New York Knicks forward RJ Barrett (9) defends Washington Wizards guard Bradley Beal (3) during the first half of a preseason game on Oct. 11. KATHY WILLENS AP
    Washington Wizards guard Bradley Beal - one of the players the Heat has coveted in trade machinations this year and was eyeing in free agency down the road -indicated Friday that he believes the Heat is one of the best run organizations in the NBA.

    But that high regard for the Heat ultimately wasnít enough to compel him to bypass a two-year, $72 million contract extension that he signed with the Wizards in October. The Heat was prepared to pursue Beal - among others - in 2021 free agency if he hadnít signed that extension.

    In an interview with The Miami Herald at his locker after the Heatís home win against Washington on Friday, Beal was asked if he considered a potential future with the Heat before signing that contract extension with the Wizards that binds him to Washington through 2021-22, with a player option for 2022-23.

    ďYes and no,Ē Beal said. ďIíve heard it but I didnít really sit and really dissect everything. It was more or less trying to figure out what I was wanted to do here, what our situation was here because everything was up in the air, in a cloud, so I couldnít make a decision based off uncertainty or make a rash decision just because it was a little cloudy.

    ďOnce everything cleared up, we got our GM [Tommy Sheppard], we got our staff. We were able to sit down and discuss our future. Thatís why Iím still here.


    ďIt [the Heat] was a consideration but it wasnít like, ĎOh man, itís like one of my destinations.í It was noise I was hearing.Ē

    Was the Heat a consideration before his decision to sign an extension because of that noise surrounding the Heat or because he has great respect for the Heat?


    ďItís both; itís both,Ē Beal said. ďThis [Heat] organization is by far one of the best run in the league. What you hear from Pat Riley on down, from how coach Spo [Erik Spoelstra] is one of the best coaches in the league. You see the high character guys who come in and out. Having several championships here. Itís a championship caliber organization so you have to respect it.Ē

    Beal, congenial and accommodating by nature, smiled when I mentioned perhaps he could end up here one day, though I would read nothing into that smile.

    For now, heís committed to Washington. Miami likely has addressed shooting guard longterm with Tyler Herro and Kendrick Nunn, though I would by no means rule out a future pursuit of Beal or Indiana guard/potential 2021 free agent Victor Oladipo.


    When free agency comes in 2021, the Heat is expected to target Milwaukee forward Giannis Antetokounmpo, with Oladipo among others also expected to be on Miamiís radar.

    But a Beal-to-Miami scenario will remain a possibility as long as heís playing at a high level and because of the Heatís high regard for him.

    If he grows unhappy with the Wizardsí rebuilding program - and to this point, he has not - he could ask for a trade next season, and Miami assuredly would explore it, though giving up Herro would be very, very difficult if Herro continues to play as well as he has the past two games.

    Because of Jimmy Butlerís ball-handling skills and Herroís improvement in that area, a Butler/Beal/Herro wing trio could work.

    The earliest Beal can become a free agent is the summer of 2022, if he bypasses a $37.3 million player option for 2022-23.


    Heís earning $27.1 million this season and will make $28.8 million next season and $34.5 million in 2021-22.

    Before he signed the contract extension, every tweet by Beal - whether it had to do with his alma mater UF or music or any other topic - was followed by tweets from Heat fans imploring him to come to the Heat.

    Do those types of comments help or hurt the Heatís chances or have no impact?

    ďItís interesting,Ē Beal said. ďI embrace it in a way because itís a sign people want me and youíre good in a way. I regard it as high respect and I am appreciative of it. But I donít give it all my energy and I donít let it concern me.Ē

    Beal, 26, ranks fifth in the NBA in scoring at 28.0 points per game to go with 7.0 assists and 4.5 rebounds, while shooting 45.3 percent from the field and 34.3 percent on three-pointers.

    Beal has played more minutes than any other NBA player in the last two regular seasons and was the only player to have started all 82 games in both of those seasons. This season, he has started all 22 games for the Wizards, who are 8-15.

    I have a hard time believing weíre interested in Love but if we are we better go ahead and make as many all in moves as we can.

    Get Love, then trade for one of Jrue, Lowry, or CP3

    Then use our first round pick on someone like JJ Redick or Marcus Morris, someone who can shoot the lights out and add depth.

    With a 1st going to the pelicans. You have to go all in if you trade for Love but also be smart about the future and keep Bam and Herro.

    Jrue/Dragic
    Reddick/Herro
    Jimmy/Robinson
    Love/DJJ
    Bam/Silva

    Cap relief and a young project for Love, they can have DJJ too if they want.

    ROY candidate, Winslow who David Griffin loves and already tried to get, a 1st and filler but solid players to the pelicans.

    Am I getting better, does this trade make us legit contenders?
