Miami Heat: Five Possible Trade Scenarios for Mario Chalmers and Chris Andersen

Miami Heat: Five Possible Trade Scenarios for Mario Chalmers and Chris Andersen

5. Jamal Crawford, Los Angeles Clippers

A second straight chaotic offseason, this time strictly related to basketball issues, isn’t always the greatest situation. Still, the seemingly likely return of DeAndre Jordan is a step toward balancing things out.

When it comes to what Los Angeles can offer, there’s the $5.675 million contract of veteran shooting guard Jamal Crawford. He’s 35 years old, but still averaged 15.8 points per game last year, the 13th consecutive year he’s averaged in double figures.

Given the up-and-down status of Dwyane Wade’s health, Crawford would help provide some insurance as well as quality depth. Plus, it would whittle more than $3.5 million off the Heat payroll.

Regardless of whether they’re able to peddle either player (or both), Miami will be in salary cap hell for a year. That status may be worth it next year if all the current machinations result in the type of free agent bonanza that rivals the haul from 2010, which resulted in two NBA titles and four trips to the Finals.
