1 Min Read

The Miami Heat reportedly are on Sacramento Kings guard Buddy Hield’s list of preferred trade destinations.

Hield has been open about wanting out from Sacramento, but now it seems that he also has an idea of where he would like to land.

Hield was moved to the bench last season by Kings head coach Luke Walton.

While his shooting numbers decreased from the season before, the change wasn’t drastic.

Hield went from shooting 45.8 percent from the field in the 2018-19 season to 42.9 percent in the 2019-20 campaign.

His 3-point percentage also dropped, as he went from 42.7 percent to 39.4 percent last season.

However, Hield still managed to score 19.2 points per game despite only starting in 44 of his 72 appearances.

He would be another sharpshooter in Miami’s rotation that already includes Tyler Herro and Duncan Robinson.

Miami is looking to improve a roster that made the NBA Finals last season.
