AUCH Roundtable: Should Miami Heat Look To Move Max Strus? – Will’s Take

The Miami Heat are currently heading into troubled waters, as the deadline is approaching and decisions need to be made.

Will’s Take (@crackseason)

One of the biggest conversations, so far, has involved the futures of both Kyle Lowry and Max Strus.

Max Strus, at the moment, is the biggest problem that the Heat need solutions for. Max is currently in the last year of his deal and at this point in time, Miami has three options.

They can, either, trade him to get something, somewhat, valuable in return, pay him around $10 million or however much he requests in the offseason, or the worst-case scenario, they let him walk for absolutely nothing.

The best decision to make right now is to move Max. It’s among the belief that Miami has squeezed everything they can out of him and it’s time to capitalize, for as bad as that sounds.

Whether they move him for another role player, a pick, or even maybe packaged in a bigger deal, Miami has to leave with something. Yes, this team lacks shooting but Max’s shooting has left a lot to be desired.

He’s still hitting the same mark, but on more attempts. At this point, it just seems that these are possessions being taken away from the Big Three.

Miami can only hope that Duncan Robinson can return to past form and provide that shooting that they so desperately need. Whether he does or not means nothing in the end though because they’re still stuck with Duncan and his contract.

Max, however, they’re not and he needs to be moved immediately. It’s nothing personal with Max—just business.
