Sixers get: Terance Mann (via Clippers), Robert Covington (via Clippers), Kyle Lowry (via Heat), Protected 2028 first-round pick (unprotected in 20230, via Clippers)

Clippers get: James Harden (via Sixers), PJ Tucker (via Sixers)

Heat get: Malcolm Brogdon (via Blazers), Jonathan Isaac (via Magic)

Knicks get: Marcus Morris (via Clippers)

Blazers get: Duncan Robinson (via Heat), Danuel House Jr. (via Sixers), Protected 2027 first-round pick (unprotected in 2028, via Heat)

The Heat tried to acquire Damian Lillard and Jrue Holiday this offseason. However, Lillard was traded to the Milwaukee Bucks and Holiday was sent to the Boston Celtics. Many people around the NBA believe Miami president Pat Riley needs to make a trade for the team to compete with Boston and Milwaukee.
