According to a report by Darren Rovell of Action Network, Heat players Gabe Vincent and Max Strus could be in line for significant contract offers this summer. The two emerging talents have impressed with their performances and could attract interest from several teams.
Rovell pointed out that both Vincent and Strus have shown considerable potential and may even be considered better than Duncan Robinson, who recently signed a five-year deal worth an average annual value of $18 million. Additionally, the Heat rewarded Tyler Herro, who won the Sixth Man of the Year award, with a contract worth $30 million per year over four years.
One NBA front office executive suggested that Vincent and Strus could potentially sign deals in the range of $15 million per year. However, the market for the duo may be limited to teams willing to offer them increased minutes and responsibilities.
Vincent, who is set to become an unrestricted free agent this summer, has proven his worth with consistent contributions. During the regular season, the 26-year-old guard averaged 9.4 points, 2.1 rebounds, and 2.5 assists in 25.9 minutes per game. In the playoffs, he has stepped up even further, averaging 13.9 points, 1.6 rebounds, and 3.9 assists in 31.6 minutes per game.
Strus, also an unrestricted free agent, has showcased his versatility and scoring ability. The 27-year-old averaged 11.5 points, 3.2 rebounds, and 2.1 assists in 28.4 minutes per game during the regular season. In the playoffs, he has continued to make an impact, posting 10 points, 3.3 rebounds, and 1.4 assists in 28.6 minutes per game.
