REPORT: Heat Have Expressed Interest in Hachimura, Washington and Batum Ahead of Deadline
The Miami Heat have been one of the best teams in the entire NBA this season. With a record of 34-20, they currently hold the top spot in the Eastern Conference. With that in mind, they could be looking to improve their roster ahead of the Feb. 10 trade deadline.
According to Greg Sylvander of Five Reasons Sports, there’s three forwards in particular that the Heat have expressed interest in. Sylvander says Miami has some level of interest in Rui Hachimura, PJ Washington and Nic Batum.
All three would certainly raise the ceiling of this Heat team. Currently the top team in the Eastern Conference, they’ll still have a ton of competition in the postseason.
With just three days until the trade deadline, it appears Miami could be active on the open market as buyers. It appears that the forward position is one they’re directly looking to target, with those three names at top of mind.
