— Chris Silva: Sometimes you simply need a minimum contract to balance a deal.
— KZ Okpala: And sometimes a team covets your unknown prospect enough to seal a deal.
— Goran Dragic: While a sign-and-trade technically is possible, the real trade impact would be that if Dragic takes a one-year Heat contract, he automatically would receive the right to veto any trade.
— Jae Crowder: It is possible there could be an asset gained in a sign-and-trade. But the preference seemingly remains a one-year deal as a keeper.
— Meyers Leonard: This is where the Heat could potentially assist Leonard in receiving a higher salary elsewhere than the steep pay cut that appears inevitable.
— Derrick Jones Jr.: It would seem, at this point, as if this will be a simple free-agent parting.
— Solomon Hill: Perhaps to be re-signed to then fill out a trade. But that would appear the limit of trade impact .
