    It all depends on what the Pistons would want in a trade...

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.

    Don’t know if Blake is attainable, but I do think this is where we should be looking. Our glaring hole right now is a legit 4 to put next to Bam. Not sure what’s out there in the trade market right now, but I think that should be our focus.

    Heat Could Pair Blake Griffin With Jimmy Butler

    Miami will make a trade, either for an All Star player, or some upgrades.

    With Jimmy Butler and a slew of talented players around him, it’s safe to say we can expect the Heat to be competing in the postseason this spring. Buth with another star, a guy like Blake Griffin, Miami could be vaulted up into Championship contender status. According to Complex, the potential pairing of Butler and Griffin would be an “interesting move” for the Heat — and one they may very well pull off if things go sour in Detroit.

    “The Detroit Pistons have playoff aspirations this season but if things go left, would anyone be shocked if they dangle Griffin in trade talks? With the NBA pretty wide open, a contender could look to Griffin as their missing piece and make a big splash. Could the Miami Heat look to pair Griffin and Jimmy Butler? Could be an interesting move.”


    Griffin is certainly an upgrade over Meyers Leonard. Last season, he averaged 24.5 points, 7.5 rebounds, and 5.4 assists on 46% shooting.

    With Butler, they could make a formidable one-two punch with solid rotation pieces surrounding them. A guy like Griffin comes at a cost, though, and the Heat would have to be willing to pay.

    At 30-years-old, and a bonafide All-Star, he might just be worth it.

    Spo talking to the media earlier today about Winslow & Bam; he was going to call them, HEAT lifers, then he stopped and corrected himself by saying HEAT leaders. Maybe in the back of his mind he was thinking Pat has a trade in mind. lol

    & lol at the Whiteside vid

    Well, I guess it's time for us to start the Draymond to Miami rumors, right?

    He would be a great fit in the team next to BAM, but GSW would ask for too much.

    As much as I'm open to trading Winslow, I'm not sure I'd do it in this scenario. I also wouldn't give up BAM, Herro, Nunn, or Jimmy. So GSW would basically be getting scrubs.

    You could totally convince me to trade Nunn in a Dray deal, but with Steph and Russell already the Warriors probably wouldnt want him as the centerpiece.

    Olynyk, DJJ, Leonard expiring, some protected first for Dray and some ****? Probably doesn't get it done. It would take Dray telling GS that he is cool with being traded and that he wants to go to Miami

    Best hope is JJ can be a really poor man's Draymond once he's fully in shape.

    Revisiting this because I think he gets moved soon. I'm assuming it's full rebuild and they would want picks which Miami won't have, but maybe there's a 3-way trade to be made.

    Agreed... I just wish his contract was up when Giannis is to be a free agent lol

    The only problem I see is will he stay healthy??? Bam & Blake would be nice together.

    I know it sounds a little crazy, but I feel that Pat isn't eyeing Beal anymore, and his 2 targets for a trade are Blake & DLo.

    DLo
    Jimmy/ Herro
    shooter
    Blake
    Bam/ Silva (HEAT make room to full out sign him)

    Traded players for contracts or draft picks to be sent out to other teams... Dragic (for a 1st rd pick), Nunn, Winslow, Djj, Waiters (lol), M L & other fillers will be moved. Dec 15 we find out.

    Never been a fan of Blake Griffin. He just is not a winning player. One of those players who always puts up numbers that does not translate to wins.

    If there's a way to get Justise-Herro-Jimmy-Blake-Bam then i'm interested. Some deal involving some of Nunn, Robinson, DJJ, and then matching contracts. Beasted is right though, 3 way is probably what would need to occur.

    I think last season encapsulates Blake Griffin's career: Has great regular season, actually plays 75 games...but hurts his knee right at the end of the season and misses games during the Pistons playoff push and the first two games of the Milwaukee series........and oh, by the way...the guy is currently hurt

    There's also the fact his contract runs through the ever important summer of 2021, and I much rather have a max cap slot over paying Griffin close to $40 million

    And I just want to remind people how great Nunn's contract is for us:

    2019-2020: $1.42 million
    2020-2021: $1.66 million
    Summer of 2021 Qualifying Offer/Cap Hold:.............$2.12 million!!!!

    If Nunn keeps this pace up that's one of the best contracts in the whole league AND he will have a minuscule cap hold during the summer of 2021 with his FULL bird rights and RFA..........just fyi
