Swap deal: Miami Heat set swap Trade for Jimmy Butler and James Harden Proposal….


The NBA season has started, so you might think that maybe, just maybe, we’re done with the Miami Heat trade rumors, especially if they include ne’er-do-wells like Sixers guard James Harden. Well, you’d be wrong.

Despite what would be a notably awful fit from a culture standpoint, and despite no interest shown by the organization at all to this point, the Heat are still being connected to Harden, currently exiled from the team.

This week, CBS Sports has the Heat as a “best partner” for a Harden deal.

The deal, as writer Ameer Tyree put it together, would send Tyler Herro to Philadelphia, with “Caleb Martin and draft capital (to) help sweeten that deal.”

Tyree wrote: “The Miami Heat missed out on the Damian Lillard sweepstakes and it’s clear that they could still use an upgrade at point guard. Harden appears to be the only star on the market and Miami shouldn’t have to fork up as much as they would have for Lillard. The Heat have enough moveable assets and talent to make a deal work.

There are a number of issues with James Harden-Miami Heat trade rumors, especially ones that involve Herro. In the end, the Heat were not going to go so far as to give up Herro, Martin and draft capital to get Lillard, though it is difficult to know whether they’d have budged on that because they simply did not talk to the Blazers.

If the Heat were not going to give up Martin and draft capital to get Lillard, they certainly would not do it to get Harden.
