NBA Trade Rumors: Miami Heat Targeting Jared Sullinger? Jose Calderon Signs Up With Atlanta Hawks

NBA trade rumors indicate that the Miami Heat is eyeing Jared Sullinger of the Phoenix Suns. It has been rumored that Pat Riley, Heat President, has already met with him. However, it appears that Miami has not made any offer yet.

Sullinger Is Free To Negotiate

Sullinger is currently a free agent and can negotiate with any team he likes. He was traded by the Toronto Raptors to the Phoenix Suns for forward P.J. Tucker last Feb. 23. But the Suns waived his contract the next day. Recent NBA trade rumors say he is now entertaining offers from other teams. Apparently, one of these teams is Miami.

He Had Limited Play Time

Sullinger sustained a broken left since October last year but it has already healed. He signed a one-year contract with the Raptors in July 2017 but was only able to play 11 games in the 2016-17 season. NBA trade rumors revealed that David Falk, Sullinger's agent said Riley has already visited the NBA player but he has not yet worked out with the Heat.

He Is Expected To Sign With Miami

Falk also said that Riley is a fan of Sullinger. He added that he had a lot of respect for Riley, owing to their long relationship during Riley's coaching days. NBA trade rumors suggest that the agent said he expects Miami to sign up Sullinger soon.

Calderon Has Finalized His Deal

Meanwhile, the ink is already on paper with regards to Jose Calderon and the Atlanta Hawks. The Hawks announced last Saturday that the veteran point guard has already signed his contract with the team. NBA trade rumors revealed that Marc Stein of ESPN seems to be the first one who reported about this deal last Friday.

He Will Bring Versatility To The Hawks

Calderon previously thought that he will still play with the Golden State Warriors by agreeing to a deal with them on Wednesday. However, as things turn out, he will have his locker in Atlanta instead of California. NBA trade rumors indicate that the point guard will bring versatility to the roster of coach Mike Budenholzer. Calderon is able to play effectively in both shooting and point guard positions.
