Report: Heat have strong interest in Bradley Beal trade
James Harden is formally off the marketplace, so the Miami Heat may be turning their attention to another top shooting guard.
Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reported on Friday that the Heat have a “high” level of interest in trading for Wizards star Bradley Beal. The quantity they would want to quit for Beal is uncertain however. Jackson keeps in mind that Miami was reluctant to give up young guard Tyler Herro, sharpshooter Duncan Robinson, and novice huge man Precious Achiuwa all together in trade talks with the Houston Firecrackers for Harden.
The 27-year-old Beal seems at the peak of his powers today. He is publishing an NBA-leading 34.9 indicate opt for 5.3 rebounds, and 5.0 assists a video game. Unfortunately for Beal, the Wizards have actually not had a winning season considering that 2017-18. That streak may continue this season with the team off to an ugly 3-8 start.
The Heat would have a lot of salary to soak up, as Beal is owed roughly $100 million over the next 3 seasons. But Beal’s dynamic scoring would make for a strong fit in a Miami offense whose scoring load is split amongst multiple players on any offered night. He is also relatively close with some of their stars.
