Miami Heat Receive: Victor Oladipo

Indiana Pacers: KZ Okpala, Kendrick Nunn, Andre Iguodala, 2022 1st Round Pick

Victor Oladipo going to the Miami Heat would turn them into even stronger contenders moving forward. He could be the missing a link to a team that already has an impressive core of players in place. This would be an instance where the Heat would like to keep Oladipo around long-term.

The Pacers will be able to land an intriguing young player in Kendrick Nunn. He was one of the best rookies in the league last year early on. They would also be able to land a first-round pick and Andre Iguodala.

This is one of the better returns the Pacers would get for Oladipo giving his injury history and contract situation. Indiana doesn’t have a whole lot of value to work with and leverage isn’t necessarily the greatest for them either.

Let’s take a closer look and see how this deal centered around Victor Oladipo would benefit both the Indiana Pacers and Miami Heat.
