Miami Heat Planning to Build Another Super Team With Gordon Hayward, Dwyane Wade on It?
The Miami Heat were among the biggest surprises during the regular season. Now, they are making waves in NBA rumors since it is possible they would bring in a couple of star players that will make them a super team again. These are Gordon Hayward and Dwyane Wade.
Wade is currently with the Chicago Bulls but because his contract with them has a player option for this year, many believe it is possible for him to head back to Miami. A report by the Miami Herald earlier this month stated that the veteran guard is "considering a return at some point in his career." The 35-year-old again donning a Heat jersey might happen sooner than expected.
Another report by the Miami Herald even explored the potential role Wade will have when he comes back to Miami. It was mentioned that "The Flash" is likely to be a reserve if he re-signs with the Heat.
Meanwhile, Hayward was connected to the Heat late last March following a report by Frank Isola of the New York Daily News. He wrote that if Utah fails to keep the All-Star forward, he might end up in Miami.
Now, the NBA rumors linking Hayward to the Heat were reignited after he failed to be included in any NBA All-Team. If he did, Utah can sign him to a five-year max deal that is worth $207 million. Unfortunately, because he was left out, they can still offer him a five-year pact but it comes with a lesser price. According to All U Can Heat, the situation took away the "advantage" his current team was supposed to have.
If Hayward was chosen to any NBA All-Team, Utah would have had the advantage of offering him a lucrative deal that no other team will match. But now, interested organizations can present amounts that are close to what the Jazz could give him.
This might be good news for Miami which is already viewed as a potential destination for Hayward. The Heat's chances of acquiring him in this year's free agency just improved.
