Heat Mitchell

Finding the ideal supporting star in Donovan Mitchell

Listen, it doesn't take a rocket scientist to realize that Donovan Mitchell is probably the Miami Heat's best chance to land a big fish this summer. However, as we learned last offseason, one of the Heat's biggest issues is finding a path toward a deal. Let's just assume for a minute that Mitchell wants to be traded and would list the Heat as one of his preferred destinations. The Heat still has to find a way to outbid other teams for Mitchell's services in a theoretical bidding war. That could be extremely difficult for this front office to do.

This type of deal does give them the best chance to get something done. No hardball, no outside influences. Miami got burned last season because of that and heading into this summer, they need to prove that they learned a very valuable lesson.

On paper, Mitchell would not only be an answer to the emerging questions surrounding the Jimmy Butler build but he would also be the answer to a player the team can continue to build around Bam Adebayo down the line.
