It has been suggested that the struggling San Antonio Spurs could look to trade their two best players at some point this season.
The Miami Heat came to mind as a potential suitor for these players, according to Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald.
Heat President Pat Riley has shown restraint from pursuing a blockbuster trade, but has said he’s “open to making a move if it’s the right one,” as he has admired both LaMarcus Aldridge and DeMar DeRozan.
Neither player has a contract that extends beyond the key summer of 2021 as well.
Riley had tried to bring both players to the Heat in the past.
In the end, Aldridge ultimately signed with the Spurs in 2015, while DeRozan remained with the Toronto Raptors in 2016.
If the Spurs decide to make these players available, the Heat could do their due diligence and make a potential move.
