Last week, the Miami Heat traded for Jimmy Butler. Now, there’s talk they may add another NBA superstar to their roster.
Multiple reports suggest that the Heat could swing a trade with the Oklahoma City Thunder to bring triple-double machine Russell Westbrook to Miami. Westbrook is one of the best players in the league and he would instantly make the Heat a contender in the Eastern Conference. He’s an eight-time all-star, won back to back All-Star Game MVP’s, led the league in scoring twice, and was named the league’s MVP in the 2016-2017 season. He even holds the record for the most triple-doubles in a season with 42.
True, he’s an 11-year veteran with a huge contract, specifically 4 years and $170 million dollars remaining on his deal, but, hey, he sure would be fun to watch. Things could get very interesting at the American Airlines Arena this season.
