Bagley was recently informed that he will not be a part of Sacramento’s rotation in the team’s opening game.
Of course, this counts as only a loose connection. But if Bagley is bought out he could be on Miami's radar. At $11.3M, he makes too much for the Heat to match in a trade.

It remains to be seen how Bagley’s stint with the Kings will unfold from here, but it certainly seems like his agent wants to find the former first-round pick a better situation than the one he’s currently in.
In the 2020-21 season, Bagley posted averages of 14.1 points, 7.4 rebounds and 1.0 assist per game. He knocked down 50.4 percent of his shots from the field and a career-best 34.3 percent of his shots from 3-point land.
If the Heat were to add Bagley, it would provide the team with some nice depth in the frontcourt. Moreover, the youngster would likely benefit greatly from a change of scenery.
Time will tell where the 22-year-old will land. For now, he remains a member of the Kings organization.
