Miami Heat: De’Aaron Fox makes sense for them but… not right now

The Miami Heat need to add another piece or two to what they already have. Should De’Aaron Fox be in play here for Miami?

Miami Heat fans did it again this past weekend! With De’Aaron Fox‘s house being reportedly on the market, fans got out their detective hats.

Later in the day though, Fox went to Twitter to say his house has been on the market for three months. Still, Miami fans are wondering how Miami could acquire the Sacramento Kings star player.

It is a very interesting conversation to have. To think about it though, is Fox the move to make right now?

I would love for Miami to acquire Fox but as of right now, I do not think the time is right. That goes for now at least.

Before everyone comes at me, saying this and that, let me try and explain to you why the timing just isn’t right. Look at it this way, have you ever liked someone but they were dating somebody?

Also, the whole time they were dating, you were thinking why is she/he with him/her? This is what Fox being with Sacramento is.

The Miami Heat will turn over every stone to improve this offseason. They should leave this one down for now though.

Everyone knows that Sacramento has been a joke of an organization since the early 2000s after their playoff days. So, Fox leaving Sacramento will happen sooner or later due to Sacramento being Sacramento.

Like I said before about liking someone but not understanding why they were with that person, just fall back and see what other options are there to have because sooner or later, the expected will finally happen and you will be in the driver’s seat.

Speaking of being in the driver’s seat, look at your Miami Heat next offseason with cap space and young assets. Let me remind you that next year’s free agency class has Giannis Antetokounmpo, Kawhi Leonard, LeBron James, Anthony Davis, Paul George, Rudy Gobert, Jrue Holiday, DeMar DeRozan, and Victor Oladipo.

Why put all your eggs in one basket with Fox, who l love by the way, but financially doesn’t make sense with all these options on the menu. With Bam Adebayo‘s contract looming, it would be hard to give up someone like Tyler Herro on a cheap contract.

Acquiring Fox would mean giving up a cheap young asset. Then, on the other side, you have to pay Fox at the same time you would have to pay Adebayo.

Also, I am not saying Herro is better than Fox but as of right now, Herro is a better fit due to his shooting and floor spacing. Fox shot 29.2% from three last year and for his career, is only 32.8% from three.

With Jimmy Butler not being a floor spacer and having the ball in his hands most of the time, how would that fit look? Fox, no doubt would be Miami’s point guard of the future.

He would also be back with a friend and former college teammate in Bam Adebayo, which would be a nice combo to have, I just don’t think Fox in Miami makes sense as of right now.

The point is this. I just don’t think Butler and Fox’s fit would be one that would work out right now.

But down the line, I think it would be a great fit once Butler’s time in Miami is over. Fox is another Kentucky guy who fits the mold to be in the Heat Culture.

Remember guys and gals, sometimes it’s better to fall back and let other people make mistakes… cough cough… like the Sacramento Kings. Then, when the timing is right, reach out to see what happens.

dark. Next. 3 reasons why they must re-sign Goran Dragic

Miami is whale watching for next year but down the line, Fox could be a whale and Miami will shoot their harpoon to lure him in once Sacramento screws up. Just hang out, it’ll happen.
