Trades are one of the most interesting parts of professional sports. The Miami Heat have made a ton of trades over the years, but it’s impossible to know how well those trades turned out until years later.
Take a look back at Sept. 15, 2020 Earlier today, the Miami Heat’s Twitter account released a video of Bam Adebayo’s clutch block on a Jayson Tatum dunk attempt in Game 1 of the 2020 Eastern Conference Finals.
Unlike last season, the Miami Heat have a defined role for Tyler Herro. Last year was a weird season for the whole league, let alone the Miami Heat but the player who had the most up and down season was Herro, by far.
Jimmy Butler has become a hallmark of elite NBA defense. The superstar wing has landed on an All-NBA or All-Defensive team in seven of the last eight seasons, and he led the league with 2.1 steals per game in 2020-21.
The Miami Heat brought in former Charlotte Hornets wing on Tuesday, Caleb Martin, signing him to a two-way deal. While it may not be the sexiest pickup, you have to believe that the Miami Heat see something in Martin that makes him worth their second and final two-way slot.
As of now, it seems as though the Miami Heat love their roster. They added a few new pieces and also kept most of their core from last season. A Big 3 of Jimmy Butler, Bam Adebayo, and Kyle Lowry should be able to compete with any other team in the NBA.
The Miami Heat will come into this next season with renewed hope. After a long offseason, especially in relation the one prior to the latest, they should not only come in revamped but recharged as well.
Miami’s training camp roster is essentially set. Former Charlotte Hornets forward Caleb Martin signed a two-way contract with the Miami Heat on Tuesday, filling out its final two-way contract, per Shams Charania of Stadium and The Athletic.
The Miami Heat are reportedly expected to add free agent guard Caleb Martin to a two-way contract. According to Shams Charania of The Athletic, the Heat will fill out the 20-player training camp roster Martin.
This offseason, the basketball world couldn’t stop talking about how Dennis Schroder’s one-year, $5.9 million deal with the Boston Celtics paled in comparison to the $84 million extension he turned down from the Los Angeles Lakers months earlier.
Two days after Mike Inglis resigned as the radio voice for the Miami Heat, he was replaced by sideline reporter Jason Jackson. The Heat announced the move via Twitter and its website. “Becoming the radio voice of the Heat is a dream come true,” Jackson said in a statement.
The Miami Heat are going for it. After making an aggressive offseason move for Kyle Lowry via sign-and-trade, the infrastructure in place for Miami has an extremely high floor but also a potential NBA Finals ceiling.
The Miami Heat entered the 2020-21 season confident after the franchise’s sixth Eastern Conference championship and an appearance in the NBA Finals. The team brought back much of the same roster, ready to make another run with a fully healthy core.
