The Miami Heat may move a bit more suddenly with Giannis signing an extension in Milwaukee.

The Miami Heat have had eyes on Giannis for a while now, which was fine because he could help extend Jimmy’s longevity and timeline a bit. Without him, you have to speed everything up.

Back to Jimmy, This goes especially because Miami is on Jimmy Butler‘s timeline at the age of 31 with three years left on his contract. The next three years for Miami is now or never, which leads me to change my tone on keeping Tyler Herro.

By no means am I a Herro hater like some people out there, which I find to be very odd because of what Herro did this past postseason and only at 20 years old but I digress, but the time is also now for Miami to empty the clip. That, at this juncture, means acquiring The Beard.

Could you imagine Bam Adebayo, Butler, and Harden? You can figure out the rest later with those three pegged in.

But, if the Philadelphia 76ers want Harden, then they can surely acquire him for Ben Simmons and a pick, which I think it would take to get the deal done. That’s also better than anything the Heat can offer.

If you’re Miami, what do you do if Harden is traded to another team or stays put in Houston? Miami should then take a look at the San Antonio Spurs.
