Heat Rumors: Heat has been linked to a 6-point All-Star Guard by a former player


Damian Lillard #0 of the Portland Trail Blazers dribble the ball in front of Jay Crowder #99 of the Miami Heat in the first quarter during their game at the Moda Center.

The Miami Heat couldn’t get another star player this season even though it’s well known that they wanted another piece to work together and take the pressure off Jimmy Butler. The Heat was linked early on with the Bradley Bell chase, and he re-signed it in Washington. They were also in the lottery for Kevin Durant and Donovan Mitchell, to no avail. The team is going forward and bringing it back with a similar roster to last season, minus PJ Tucker in the Power Forward position after leaving to join the Philadelphia 76ers in free agency.

While the Heat team weren’t able to close a deal in the off-season, don’t count them on future moves. However, for now, Tyler Herro, who has been one of the pieces offered in most deals in this off-season, has just signed an extension and can’t deal with it until the end of the season. Recent re-signs of tradable contracts like Caleb Martin and Dewayne Dedmon are also non-tradable until winter. But that didn’t stop the Heat from talking about another star. Recently, a former player chose South Beach as the best city for Portland Trail Blazers star Damian Lillard.

Damien Lillard to South Beach?

In the last episode of ‘all smoke Podcast hosted by former NBA players Matt Barnes and Stephen Jackson, the show was talking about Damian Lillard with Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce, when Jackson considered proposing that Lillard should leave Portland for Miami.

“The lady needs to go to Miami,” Jackson said. “… Kyle Lowry And all of them – bring the lady there. Hiro is not playing well. It didn’t end last year. You can get rid of Kyle, and you can add another shoot if you wish. In fact, we’ll put a fourth in there for the lady if that’s the case.”

Jackson suggests The Heat could move on from Herro and Kyle Lowry and send them in a deal with the Blazers. Once again, Herro cannot be traded for a season after recently extending his contract, but that could be a move in the future. Lillard considered his loyalty a reason to stay in Portland even though there is no great team around at the moment. Another year of underperformance in the Pacific Northwest may be the final push to transfer Lillard to a rival team.

Damian Lillard on staying in Portland

Last season, the Blazers traded CJ McCollum to the NBA trade deadline and the team is clearly preparing to rebuild, but Damian Lillard has remained consistent in staying in Portland and building something special.

“I am loyal to what I believe in,” Lillard told Complex Sports in February. “I love living in Portland. I love playing with the Trail Blazers. But I built this. I’ve been a part of this for 10 years. I’ve been a part of the change here and we’ve become a successful franchise. I know what it means to me in my heart. And that’s winning a championship here.”
