The Miami Heat don’t play their next preseason game until tomorrow night, so in the meantime, let’s continue to take a look at their trade history with various NBA franchises.
Their next game is against the Houston Rockets, but since we have already looked at Miami’s trade history with the Rockets, we have to choose a different team.
As usual, the way this is decided is by spinning a wheel with all 30 NBA teams on it. This time around, that wheel chose the Boston Celtics.
The Miami Heat and Boston Celtics have been rivals in the past. This can mainly be traced back to the LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, and Chris Bosh era of Heat history.
They went up against Boston’s Big 3 numerous times in the playoffs. Those matchups were legendary, and both teams got their fair share of wins.
Nowadays, both teams are in pretty good positions to compete for the playoffs and even met in the Eastern Conference Finals a couple of seasons ago. As of now, the Miami Heat seemingly have the better team at the moment, but Boston has a couple of young stars who will help them be competitive for years to come.
As competitive as these two teams have been, they actually have made a fair amount of trades. Over the course of their franchise histories, the two teams have completed five trades.
The C’s rank third in terms of how many trades the Miami Heat have made with other teams. The latest deal was back in 2015, while the earliest one was in 1988.
So, what exactly have the Miami Heat and Boston Celtics traded back and forth? Which trade ended up being the best one for the Heat?
