Sometimes a player may turn a “bad contract” into a good one with the right amount of nurturing, improved coaching, and improved circumstances. The Miami Heat could consider trading for any of these three players, whose value might be worth increasing.

Golden State Warriors forward Andrew Wiggins
The Miami Heat and the Golden State Warriors are in comparable situations. Compared to Miami, Golden State has had more success with its key players. However, it is up to both teams to determine whether or not to part ways with players who have been essential to their teams.

Andrew Wiggins has had an up-and-down career. Wiggins hasn’t been the same player since the 2022 finals and still has three years left on his contract worth $84 million. Wiggins has all the tools to be a high-level wing in the league and has shown it in spurts.

Inconsistent play has been the story of Wiggins’ career. Wiggins struggled this past season, posting career lows in points (13.2), assists (1.7), steals (0.6), and field goals made per game (5.0). Wiggins had some off-the-court issues as well.

But maybe Wiggins is due for a bounce-back season. Miami needs size on the team, and Wiggins would provide that. At 6-foot-8, he can play either forward position and would add much-needed athleticism to Miami’s rotation. Wiggins might not fit Heat Culture, but it may be what Wiggins needs for a bounce-back season.
