NBA Rumors: Miami Heat Could 'Revisit' Trade For Kyrie Irving

NBA Rumors: Miami Heat Could 'Revisit' Trade For Kyrie Irving

The Miami Heat have been linked with several players this offseason, including Kevin Durant and Donovan Mitchell. The Floridians are yet to make a move for any of these stars, and recent rumors suggest they will try to run it back next season with the same cast that reached the Eastern Conference Finals last campaign. 

However, the Heat are always mentioned in trade rumors since they're trying to get better and pair their star duo of Jimmy Butler and Bam Adebayo with another star to have a better chance at the championship. That said, a name that was linked to them a couple of weeks ago has resurfaced, looking like a good option for the Heat. 

At some point, Kyrie Irving sounded like a good option to join the Heat this summer, but Pat Riley was reportedly focused on landing Kevin Durant instead of his teammate. Well, according to an anonymous Eastern Conference executive, they could take a look at a Kyrie Irving trade now. 

“If they’re resigned to losing K.D., I don’t see why they would keep Kyrie in place, too,” the executive told Sean Deveney of Heavy. “You’d really have to get younger. They would have to look around and maybe revisit the Lakers stuff. The Heat, too, but the Lakers had a framework on a deal.”

It's unclear what type of package the Heat would offer for Kyrie, but we know that everybody not named Jimmy Butler or Bam Adebayo are tradeable right now. If there's a team that doesn't hesitate to make these big moves, that's the Heat, and perhaps we'll see that again this offseason. 

Then again, the Nets are reportedly waiting for a resolution in the Kevin Durant situation before making any move involving Kyrie Irving. This could be a huge move for both parties, and many think they would benefit from this partnership.
