NBA Rumors: 3 Players that are currently being linked with the Miami Heat
#2 Justin Holiday
Justin Holiday was traded to the Memphis Grizzlies back in January, although the 30-year-old struggled to make much of an impact in his 44 appearances. Holiday averaged just 9.5 points and 3.5 rebounds per game, and due to his stock taking a major hit over the past 18 months, Dan Favale of Bleacher Report believes the Heat could get Holiday on a cheap deal:
Miami won't be playing much of a role in free agency. Staying out the luxury tax will be a chore on its own, and Riley's designs on signing two stars in 2020 preclude the Heat from making sizable commitments.
Justin Holiday fits within those confines. His stock mostly imploded this season after a hot start, but Miami needs to hoard wings if Justise Winslow is going to monopolize point guard responsibilities.
Holiday earned $4.4 million for the 18-19 season, although he may be available on a one-year minimum deal this summer.
