3. Miami Heat
The Miami Heat have made it publicly known that they would like to add one more All-Star to their team, who is just one year removed from an NBA Finals. They have been rumored since early in the offseason to potentially acquire either LaVine or DeRozan.
The Miami Heat are off to an 8-4 start this season with Tyler Herro taking a major step forward this year. Herro was the center of all trade conversations regarding the Heat this offseason, however, Herro is averaging 22.9 points, 5 rebounds, and 4.6 assists per game this season for Miami.
If Miami were to be not willing to move on from Herro, the Bulls would likely see Kyle Lowry, a role player like Duncan Robinson or Caleb Martin, and some draft capital in exchange for LaVine. The Heat would likely be more open to moving Lowry, as he is on an expiring contract this offseason, and his 30 million dollar salary would help better match the 40 million per year LaVine brings in.
The Heat seemed to have been rumored the most across the league in a potential, LaVine trade, however the market seems to be heating up. If Miami continues to sit around proposing low-ball offers like they did with Damian Lillard and Jrue Holiday this offseason, they might just miss out on the LaVine sweepstakes as well.
