The Miami Heat already made one big move ahead of the NBA trade deadline by landing Andre Iguodala, and they are reportedly aiming for at least one more before Thursday’s 3 p.m. deadline hits.
As the South Florida Sun-Sentinel reported, the Heat had planned to take an aggressive stance in landing the much-coveted Iguodala, who was also being pursued by the Los Angeles Lakers and Los Angeles Clippers. The Heat agreed to a two-year, $ 30 million extension with the former Golden State Warriors champion, the report noted.
Though Iguodala is 36, he will come with a fresh set of legs as he was given permission by the Memphis Grizzlies to sit out until they could find a trade partner.
The Heat still have more moves ahead, the report suggested. The team is also trying to land Oklahoma City Thunder forward Danilo Gallinari, ESPN reported on Wednesday.
