Report: Miami Heat could target De’Aaron Fox if they don’t land Giannis Antetokounmpo

1 Min Read

Amidst speculation that superstar forward Giannis Antetokounmpo will soon sign a supermax deal to remain with the Milwaukee Bucks, the Miami Heat can still make a big splash next offseason.

According to the Miami Herald‘s Barry Jackson, Miami still has a real shot of adding a star such as the Sacramento Kings’ De’Aaron Fox after the upcoming NBA season ends.

Fox, a 6-foot-3 point guard, would be an outstanding addition for the Heat. He’s one of the league’s best young players at his position and is already a borderline All-Star level player.

Fox is a legitimate scoring threat and can pile up assists by hitting the open man, both in transition and in the open court.

Moving forward, the point guard spot may be the Heat’s biggest need. Incumbent starter Goran Dragic is a free agent, and at age 34, he’s coming off a plantar fascia injury he sustained in the NBA Finals.
