Report: Miami Heat Had Deal in Place for John Wall Before Trade Deadline
- Updated: May 22, 2019
That’s due in large part to the lack of flexibility the team has with its salary cap. However, it turns out that the Heat had a deal in place with the Washington Wizards at the 2019 trade deadline to land All-Star point guard John Wall, but his Achilles popped shortly after.
“The John Wall situation is a disaster in Washington,” said Brian Scalabrine on The Sports Junkies. “I had word that the Wizards had a deal to trade him to the Miami Heat at the deadline, but his Achilles popped a month before.”
The Heat certainly dodged a bullet on this one, but it’s still intriguing to imagine who Heat president Pat Riley and the front office involved in the offer. The two most burdensome contracts on the team’s roster are those of Goran Dragic and Hassan Whiteside.
Nonetheless, no contract would have been as burdensome as Wall’s four-year, $170 million mega deal.
The Heat are still waiting on the decisions of Dragic and Whiteside, as both players can either opt in or out of the final year of their contract.
