Report: Miami Heat “monitoring” the John Collins situation

It must be a day that ends in “y”, because we have another John Collins trade rumor:

The Heat are a cap strapped team, so a trade may be difficult to pull off. Here’s what the report had to say:

“John Collins, too, the Heat are one of the teams watching that situation, but they probably need more young assets to send back,” an Eastern Conference executive told Sean Deveney of “Everyone talks about the [Los Angeles] Lakers’ 2027 pick but (Miami’s 2027 pick) is one that the Heat can trade as well, and there is a lot of value being placed on that pick because you can imagine them hitting a bottom around then. Is it enough to help them get Collins? Probably not but it is a good asset for them.”

A 2027 pick would be a paltry return for the Hawks. Nikola Jovic and Caleb Martin make sense as young players to get back, but other than that, there isn’t much that works. Maybe the Hawks would take on Duncan Robinson’s contract, but I don’t think John Collins is a player you use in a contract swap. We’re probably in for the long haul when it comes to Collins trade rumors leading up to the trade deadline.
