BREAKING: GM Addresses Heat’s $71 Million Trade Proposal and With Bold… 

The Miami Heat are exploring options to boost their scoring. They don’t necessarily need a star but someone to ease the load on Jimmy Butler. Collin Sexton might be the answer.

Since joining the NBA in 2018, Sexton has averaged over 20 points per game in two consecutive seasons. Bleacher Report’s Zach Buckley suggested a trade between the Heat and the Utah Jazz involving Sexton.

Proposed Trade:

  • Heat receive: Collin Sexton
  • Jazz receive: Duncan Robinson, No. 15 pick, 2026 Lakers second-round pick

Buckley outlined why Sexton would be a good fit for the Heat:

“Sexton could provide a much-needed scoring punch and fit into the Heat’s culture with his energetic play. He could offer the scoring boost the second team needs, especially after Tyler Herro’s promotion to the starting lineup.”

Sexton had an efficient season with the Jazz, averaging 18.7 points per game on 48.7% shooting from the field and 39.4% from three. He would join other 20-point scorers like Herro and Terry Rozier in the Heat’s backcourt. Sexton is also in the third year of a four-year, $71 million contract, making him an affordable option for Miami.

Potential Availability of Collin Sexton

There are indications that Sexton could be available this offseason. HoopsHype’s Michael Scotto reported that the Jazz might consider trading him.

“Rival executives believe guards Collin Sexton and Jordan Clarkson could be available on the trade market,” Scotto wrote.

If Sexton is available, the Heat have the assets to acquire him. They need to decide if it’s worth trading Duncan Robinson, a sharpshooter, for Sexton, a playmaker. Rozier offers similar skills to Sexton, but Sexton’s efficient scoring on a reasonable contract is an attractive prospect.

Sexton has never played for a playoff team, but joining the Heat could change that.

Analyst Praises Collin Sexton

Kevin O’Connor of The Ringer considers Sexton a “hidden gem.”

“Sexton has the qualities to help a playoff team,” O’Connor wrote. “He’s an explosive attacker, a willing playmaker, and a reliable shooter. He’s also a strong defender at just 25 years old, ready to contribute on both ends for a competitive team.”

The Heat could be that competitive team, depending on offseason moves involving Jimmy Butler.
