The Miami Heat, Sacramento Kings and Washington Wizards badly need an "overhaul" according to a former NBA player. Could a three way trade deal improve their chances in the 2016-2017 season.
Heat, Kings, Wizards Assessment
Retired NBA player Eddie Johnson gave a distressing assessment on the Heat, Kings and Wizards teams' current roster, during a Hoops Hype Video feature.
He expressed his doubts that the Miami Heat could get far in the upcoming season especially now that Dwyane Wade left and joined the Chicago Bulls. That leaves only two dependable players namely, Goran Dragic and Hassan Whiteside, according to Johnson. He said Miami Heat Team President Pat Riley should be feeling uneasy right now.
The Washington Wizards could depend on its two players namely Bradley Beal and John Wall. Johnson however, said that the "ultra-talented" pair seemed to be having problems getting along with each other.
The Sacramento Kings are lucky that they have DeMarcus Cousins in their roster. However, Johnson said that his teammates lackluster performance negate their next season's championship chances.
Three Way Trade Deal Scenario
NBA Pundits considered Johnson's evaluation and were able to come up with a Heat, Kings and Wizards three way deal using Real GM Trade Checker.
The hypothetical trade scenario will have the Miami Heat letting Chris Bosh go, according to Sportsrageous. Its roster will be revitalized by Kosta Koufus and Marcus Morris as well as Rudy Gay. The Kings can start over without Cousins. Its team rebuilding starts with Bradley Beal, Josh McRoberts and Marcin Gortat
The Washington Wizards will give up Beal and get Cousins from the Kings and Bosh from the Heat. The Wizards can also get Ben McLemore. Interestingly, Johnson also mentioned that the Wizards are unlikely to give up on either Beal or Wall. But with the right trade deal, anything can happen.
