This Thunder-Heat Trade Sends Intriguing Wing To Miami

Miami Heat, Bradley Beal, NBA Trade Rumors

In the NBA offseason, the Miami Heat made it a priority to add more championship-level talent around Jimmy Butler and Bam Adebayo, so they went out and not only acquired Kyle Lowry in a sign-and-trade deal with the Toronto Raptors, but they signed P.J. Tucker.

The Heat is looking to prove that making the 2020 NBA Finals was no fluke and as a result, they now have what looks to be a really strong team in the Eastern Conference. 

With a “Big 3” in Miami once again, this time assembled with Butler, Adebayo, and Lowry, the Heat have a championship on their mind, but this does not mean they are done making moves just yet.

Victor Oladipo’s return at some point this season from another quad injury should provide the Heat with more firepower on both ends of the floor and Tyler Herro has been an emerging young talent for them, but Miami is missing something on their bench.

Being roughly $400K under the tax line for this season already, the Heat does not have many options on ways that they can add some more talent to their roster, but they could use another player on the wing.

Max Strus’ role with this team will increase over the year and Markieff Morris will prove to be a key veteran three-point shooter, but adding a player like Kenrich Williams could really make a big difference for the Miami Heat. 

Not really known by many, Williams is currently on the Oklahoma City Thunder, a team that is rebuilding and will likely finish near the bottom of the league standings.

In his first season with the Thunder last year, Kenrich Williams was really a solid rotational guy, averaging 8.0 points, 4.1 rebounds, 2.3 assists and he shot 44.4% from three-point range. 

Being a “3-and-D” type wing, Williams could fit in with the Miami Heat, a team that prides itself on being a great defensive team. So how can Miami make this trade with Oklahoma City work?
