I don’t see Miami envolved in this trade. They don’t have access to their 2024 1st Rnd pick (Okc has their 2021 and 2023). The soonest they can offer is in 2025.

So Miami would essentially be offering a young asset, an overpriced player they don’t want and a pick in “2025” for Kevin Love + they would be taking on an additional .4 mil in salary when they are already at their limit in hard cap space. Then they would magically have to figure out how to add an additional 2 more players to their roster to have 14, even though they would be past the hard cap limit.

Miami is trying to improve on their roster this year, but they just don’t have much for assets to offer teams without giving up their young talent since Okc has those 1st Rnd picks

If this is a trade Boston and Cleveland wanted, they could do it without Miami being the 3rd wheel.

Boston turns that down in a hurry. Thompson has way too much off-court drama, and Nance looks like he's never going to be more than an average player.

For as much as TT gets talked about for off the court stuff, the Cavs were going out of their way to praise his leadership and attitude last season. I also think that both guys are upgrades over Kanter and each provide some interesting skills for a good team.

OKC, look at the protections on Miami's 2023 pick. Quite possibly their next pick won't transfer until 2027. Whose waiting 7 years for a pick that they may not even be tge team's GM then.

Yes Fredman, the 2023 pick is top 14 protected. But if it doesn’t convey, then Okc gets 2024 top 14 protected, which means you can’t offer someone in a trade 2023 1-14 because you can’t giveaway consecutive years of 1st Rnd picks.
And if Miami is really having some bad years and is still a lottery team out of the East, then Okc has 2025 top 14 protected, but in 2026 in this highly unlikely scenario, it becomes an unprotected pick.

Which is why Miami remains handcuffed in draft assets right now until 2025 (or until they get out being a lottery team) unless they could figure out someway to pry those 2 picks from Okc. Miami has already given away all of their 2nd Rnd picks through 2026.

But then again, I guess if you can convince someone that Miami is going to be that bad and a lottery team in 2023 or 2024 playing in the East with Love and Butler, then I suppose you might be able to use those as a trade asset.

07 Aug 2019 18:03:40
But I’m not sure, are you allowed to offer a lottery pick to a different team if that means the following year has already been given away to the prior team? Seems like it would be conflicting.

I think the 1st deal would have to be satisfied before a 2nd one could occur.
