Kyle Lowry, Duncan Robinson, a 2027 first-round pick, and a 2029 first-round pick for Trae Young
Tyler Herro, Duncan Robinson, and a 2027 first-round pick for Trae Young
The Miami Heat always find a way to make their name pop up in almost all trade rumors when regarding a star player, and that turns out to be true yet again. I would speculate that the playoffs and how they unfold could be a tale-tell sign if the Heat are ready to pull the trigger. They finished seventh in the Eastern Conference and could look to shake things up in the offseason.
The first deal would bring a vet with an expiring contract in Kyle Lowry, who could certainly contribute, not on Young’s level though but still a solid player even in his later 30s. The more exciting player, Duncan Robinson would make a great 3-and-D type player off the bench. Even though both of these players are coming off of shaky seasons where their overall production went down, a change of scenery might just be the magic solution to their issues. Not to mention two first-round picks, who doesn’t like those?
The second possible trade package includes already mentioned Robinson and a first-round pick, however it also includes rising star Tyler Herro.
Herro averaged 20.1 points per game and has averaged at least 20 for the second straight season. Interestingly enough, he also lead the league in free throw percentage at an absurd 93.4%, which would pair well with the Hawks’s 81.8% on the season.
He could emerge as a star if given the proper role, and could be paired nicely into a lineup as the No. 2 with Dejounte Murray.
