Trading for this 2-way wing is the perfect all-in move for the Miami Heat

Can the Miami Heat use a roster redundancy to address a major area of need?

What does Bridges cost?

Now, what exactly would it cost? The Nets, according to multiple reports, are not interested in trading Bridges. But what if the Heat offered Herro, Nikola Jovic and a 2030 first-round pick (the last pick they can trade this season)?

Herro makes a lot of sense for a Nets team without a lead guard and, at 24, he makes more sense for a rebuilding team than the 27-year-old Bridges. Jovic, at 20, is a 6-foot-10 forward who has flashed an intriguing skillset.

The Nets hold Bridges at a high value, but he isn't a first option and it might be sooner than later that the Nets realize they should sell high. If they do, this move could be more realistic.
