One NBA website is proposing that the Miami Heat trade for Toronto Raptors star Pascal Siakam in a blockbuster trade. ClutchPoints proposed the following trade idea between the Heat and Raptors:

Several NBA teams have shown interest in pursuing Siakam via trade over the past three months, but the external market has been tempered a bit due to the fact that it’s been made clear Siakam would not extend with a team that trades for him. Siakam can sign for 30 percent of the salary cap either now via extension or next offseason as a free agent with the Raptors or any other team.

The Raptors are eligible to sign Siakam to a maximum contract extension of four years and at least $192 million. Thus far, there have been no substantive conversations surrounding an extension. And for Siakam’s part, the NBA star has never requested to be traded.

Siakam averaged 24.2 points, 7.8 rebounds and 5.8 assists last season for the Raptors while shooting 48.0% from the floor, 32.4% from 3 and 77.4% from the free-throw line. He’s one of the best forwards in the NBA.

A Douala native, Siakam has career NBA averages of 17.0 points, 6.5 rebounds and 3.5 assists. He won the 2019 NBA championship and the 2018-19 Most Improved Player of the Year Award.

The Heat, who lost to the Denver Nuggets in the 2023 NBA Finals in five games, could start Kyle Lowry, Jimmy Butler, Siakam, Kevin Love and Bam Adebayo if Miami’s front office figured out a way to acquire Siakam from Toronto.
