Report: Miami Heat ‘more than likely’ trading back in NBA draft
- Updated: November 17, 2020
The Miami Heat have the No. 20 pick in the first round of Wednesday’s 2020 NBA Draft.
However, it is becoming increasingly likely that the Heat won’t pick at that spot. Yesterday, it was reported that Miami was looking to move back in the draft in order to acquire a second-round pick.
Now, it reportedly is “more than likely” that the Heat do indeed trade back in the draft.
