The Miami Heat will be among the teams keeping extremely close tabs on Giannis Antetokounmpo’s situation with the Milwaukee Bucks this offseason. Antetokounmpo can be a free agent in 2021, but the Heat could add him a year early if they could pull off a trade.
Antetokounmpo, the 2020 MVP, is set to remain with the Bucks through this offseason barring a trade as the Bucks try to convince him to stay.
But if Milwaukee were to entertain a trade, the Heat have multiple options they could offer, which could give Miami an advantage over other teams in negotiations.
