Heat Land Malcolm Brogdon

Blazers Receive:
  • Duncan Robinson

  • Nikola Jovic

  • First-Round Pick

If Portland did this deal, the draws would be Jović and the draft pick. You could debate how much either is worth now—Jović hasn't played a ton, and Miami almost never has an early draft pick—but they could be worth a fortune in the future. Jović is a 6'10", 20-year-old with a wealth of budding face-up skills, and the Heat haven't exactly saved up a ton to guide them through their post-Jimmy Butler chapter.


Portland Trail Blazers New Rotation

PG Scoot Henderson

SG Anfernee Simons

SF Duncan Robinson

PF Jerami Grant

C Deandre Ayton


PG Shaedon Sharpe

SG Matisse Thybulle

SF Kris Murray

PF Nikola Jovic

C Moses Brown

Heat Receive:
  • Malcolm Brogdon

Brogdon isn't Lillard, but he'd still be a massive backcourt upgrade in South Beach. The Heat need more offense (26th in efficiency—one spot behind where they finished last season) in virtually every way imaginable, and Brogdon can help scratch that itch. He's helpful to have both on and off the ball, and he can operate as anything from a go-to option to a do-it-all role player.
