The Miami Heat are reportedly looking for trade partners after losing game 7 of the Eastern Conference Finals to the Boston Celtics.
Multiple sources have said that the Heat are actively trying to acquire another All-Star to build around Jimmy Butler.
Bleacher Report had a proposed trade where Miami would send Tyler Herro, Duncan Robinson, Omer Yurtseven, and first round picks in 2022 & 2023 to acquire Jazz SG Donavan Mitchell.
“Mitchell, a two-time All-Star, reached the Western Conference playoffs in each of his five seasons and became the first guard since Allen Iverson to average 20 points in each of his five campaigns,” according to ESPN Stats & Info data.
It has been reported that Mitchell wants out of Utah and the move would make sense to an extent.
The Heat were in the bottom half of remaining playoff teams in overall offensive rating and efficiency. It was evident that their offense stalled out completely for long stretches against the Boston Celtics. Yes, they missed a go-ahead shot to take a lead in the closing seconds of a game 7, but it often felt that if Butler had just a little more around him, Miami would’ve coasted to their 6th NBA Finals appearance.
Mitchell would take a ton of pressure off Butler and give him another serious weapon. And if there’s any coach or team that can get the most out of “Spida” its Eric Spoelstra and #Heatculture.
Miami would lose the NBA’s 6th man of the year by trading Tyler Herro and what looks like a bright career. Herro has also added that he wanted to challenge himself by playing for a starting role.
Robinson rode the bench for the majority of the playoffs after the emergence of Max Strus but is still a reliable 40% career 3 point shooter that any team could use.
Omer Yurtseven has flashed and showed potential with his rebounding skills and soft touch to make a bucket, but could only find the floor in garbage time during the playoffs.
The trade would give Miami a new big 3 in Butler, Mitchell, and Adebayo but is it worth it?
