The Answer.

While some may hear this and balk, the fact of the matter is that even if you have a superstar or two, without the necessary role players to do the little things that seem unimportant at times, the team is no better than they would be without making the deal happen.

While this isn’t music to every Heat fan’s ears, it is the harsh reality and the truth. Is this saying that I am totally against a Bradley Beal trade, no it is not.

What it does say though is that the belief is that the Miami Heat should play it smart. Pat Riley has not been afraid or hesitant to give up draft picks or draft considerations in deals, and if he can get a deal done using mostly those resources here, then he should pull the trigger. If it appears as though it will take three or more of the core role players for this team, then he shouldn’t.

To land Bradley Beal, but to give up guys who fulfill necessary roles would be an even swap. Some might say it is harder to find a Bradley Beal than it is to find a Bam Adebayo or Justise Winslow, but that isn’t true either.

They are all hard to find and to help develop into the types of players that all three of them have become. That is why when it comes to the Miami Heat potentially trading for Bradley Beal, it is a very sticky situation.
