The Miami Heat will embark on important offseason’s in both 2020 and 2021. If the Heat have an avenue to improve this offseason, Miami may be willing to swing a trade to pair another star with Jimmy Butler. Could the Heat pry Bradley Beal away from the Washington Wizards?

To this point, Beal has not been made available, and Washington appears prepared to hold on to him. But on a more macro level, it may be time to reassess the core in Washington.

In the Bradley Beal-John Wall era, the Wizards have made the playoffs four times, but Washington has never advanced beyond the Eastern Conference Semifinals.

Wall is 30 and Beal is 27, and there’s an argument to be made that the curtain is closing on this duo.

Beal is an extremely valuable asset, and the Wizards would be able to recoup a solid package in return, regardless of where he’d be dealt.

Let’s take a look at a hypothetical trade that would send Beal to Miami, and assess it for both teams.
