The Miami Heat shocked the world when they won the Jimmy Butler sweepstakes. Unlike some of the other teams out there, Miami did not have a roster capable of winning a Championship — even with the addition of Butler.
What they do have is an owner and General Manager willing to do whatever it takes to get the team back on top.
According to NBA Insider Barry Jackson, the Heat could look to improve their standing in the East by bringing in a pair of backcourt stars.
Miami has reached out to Washington about Bradley Beal and there is ‘sentiment internally’ about taking on the rest of John Wall’s 4 year $172M contract to facilitate a trade, per @flasportsbuzz

With Butler, Wall, and Beal, the Heat could ideally compete for the Eastern Conference crown. The problem is John Wall’s questionable health. After recovering from a major injury that kept him from playing most of the 2018-19 season, there is no telling what his game might look like when he returns. His 4-year, $172M is also a major cap hold for the future.
Nonetheless, if you’re the Miami Heat, do you risk it all for the sake of bringing in Bradley Beal?
