Report: One member of Miami Heat front office has expressed interest in trading for Lonzo Ball
- Updated: February 18, 2021
The Miami Heat have lost three consecutive games, but there is a chance that reinforcements could be coming to the roster.
At least one member of the Heat front office has reportedly expressed interest in trading for New Orleans Pelicans guard Lonzo Ball.

Ball was the No. 2 overall pick in the 2017 NBA Draft.
However, New Orleans drafted point guard Kira Lewis Jr. in the first round of the 2020 draft, so it is likely that Ball isn’t a part of the team’s long-term plans.
The Heat could use help at the guard position with Goran Dragic banged up, but it isn’t clear what Miami would have to give up to acquire Ball.
This season, Ball is averaging 14.0 points, 4.3 rebounds and 4.7 assists per game while shooting 42.4 percent from the field and 38.1 percent from 3-point range.
Ball could help the Heat, but Miami has a lot of work to do if it wants to make it back to the NBA Finals after last season’s surprise playoff run.
The Heat are currently 11-17 during the 2020-21 campaign and are the No. 11 seed in the Eastern Conference.
