2 Miami Heat sacrificed to get Damian Lillard

Damian Lillard is the biggest star in the NBA who is not playing in the playoffs this season and his name has been linked to franchises such as the Miami Heat, Los Angeles Lakers or New York Knicks, who do not rule out going for his transfer

In a summer when there won’t be any big free agents on the market, Miami Heat has decided to go for the transfer of Damian Lillard. The Florida franchise, which is causing a surprise in the playoffs by winning 3-1 in the series against the great favorite Milwaukee Bucks, is willing to sacrifice two very valuable players for them. Two players who could be a perfect fit for what the Portland Trail Blazers are looking for.

Also, this transfer would give the Oakland point guard the opportunity to really compete for the ring. The last few years in Portland have not been easy for him, since he has not had enough support to be in the top positions in the Western Conference. And the lousy season for his team this year could be the push that Lillard needs to land in the Miami Heat.

Lillard, closer and closer to leaving Portland Trail Blazers

Miami Heat offer to sign Damian Lillard

As we know, the Miami Heat have very interesting young players and wages more than enough to match Damian Lillard’s. And it is not necessary to forget that the base of Portland Trail Blazers will receive 45 million dollars next season. A salary that will gradually increase until in the 2026/2027 season he enjoys a player option worth 63 million dollars.

A first offer for Lillard it should almost necessarily include a player like Tyler Herro, who continues to be one of the most promising young talents in the NBA. Likewise, to equalize salaries, the Miami Heat could include mainly players like Duncan Robinson. If he’s turned down, someone like Kyle Lowry, who doesn’t have such a frowned upon contract in the league.

Likewise, in addition to Tyler Herro + Duncan Robinson or Kyle Lowry, the Miami Heat could also include a young player like Nikola Jovic. All this without including first-round picks in the Draft, which will be essential for the operation to come to fruition. And it is that, with this operation, Portland Trail Blazers would direct its reconstruction.

The future of the Portland Trail Blazers would go through Anfernee Simmons, Shaedon Sharpe and Nassir Little. All this in addition to the player selected this year in the Draft plus those who arrive in the operation by Damian Lillard with Miami Heat. Of course, it will not be the only proposal they will have on the table. And we know that other franchises like new york knicks o The Los Angeles Lakers are also willing to give everything for the Oakland point guard.
