The NBA Free Agency window has officially opened, and the hoopla is expected to begin, especially with news Kevin Durant calls for trade From Brooklyn Nets. Expect The Heat to be in the mix of teams vying for the former best player. However, the possibility of a Hit deal is limited by their inability to get a major asset available for trading on the networks.
Ira Winderman from the movie Miami Sun Sentinel chirpAs @BobbyMarks42 pointed out this week, the Heat cannot include Bam Adebayo in any deal for Durant, since the Nets already have Ben Simmons as a contract player. The only way for Bam to go to the Nets in a Durant deal is for the Nets to also trade with Ben Simmons. “.
Durant isn’t the only attacker the Heat are linked with. The team showed its interest in veteran striker Danilo Galinari.
Gallinari to heat?
The Heat was reported to be interested in trading for Danilo Gallinari before being transacted as part of the Atlanta Hawks-San Antonio Spurs trade for Dejounte Murray. San Antonio is expected to give up Galinari, which was part of the deal, and enter the free agent market. Once in the market, the Heat are one of the three teams likely to add the 33-year-old forward.
ESPN’s Dave McMenamin reports that Gallinary is seeking a mid-level exception and has three teams on its destination list: the Miami Heat, Chicago Bulls and Celtics.
Gallinari averaged 11.7 points and 4.7 rebounds per game in Atlanta while also shooting 38.1% from outside the arc. The Italian striker is not the same player he was before, but he could be a good presence for the second unit in the Heat team. After losing PJ Tucker to free agency today, Gallinari could be a veteran replacement for Heat.
