The Miami Heat are a team that is in win-now mode with their eyes on the championship. They were able to get over the hump and win the Eastern Conference last postseason but were taken out in the NBA Finals. Meanwhile, the Detroit Pistons are in a rebuilding stage, whichever that may be.
There is a genuine pathway for a trade between the Heat and Pistons that could benefit two teams headed in different directions. It would help both sides and fit into their plan for the upcoming years.
They could use some extra star power and experience as they prepare to fight for another conference title. The Pistons might have some trade pieces to send the Heat.
Detroit was busy this NBA offseason but they are still a rebuilding team. They signed big man like Jerami Grant and Mason Plumlee while drafting Killian Hayes with the seventh overall pick in the draft. They are hoping he is the point guard of the future and got him plenty of talent in the frontcourt.
This leaves veteran players like Blake Griffin and Derrick Rose available via trade. With the current direction they are heading, it would benefit the team to send both away if possible.
The Miami Heat is the perfect destination for both Blake Griffin and Derrick Rose. Here is a potential deal that might get it done sooner than later.
