The NBA trade deadline is less than a week away and it could be one of the most active trade deadlines the NBA has seen in quite some time. There is expected to be a lot of talent relocating at the season’s midway point, and one of the next big trades could feature a move between the Miami Heat and Detroit Pistons including sharpshooter Wayne Ellington.
The Heat have seen a full 180 on their season as it started off very rough for the 2020 runner-ups. Miami is now very much alive and well in the playoff race and they could look to make a major splash at the NBA trade deadline coming up.
One player who could spark the Heat’s interest is none other than the Pistons’ Ellington. Ellington, 33, has spent 12 years in the NBA and has established himself as an effective shooter who can contribute in a multitude of ways.
There’s no doubt that adding a veteran presence to a team that already has a variety of solid talent would be a great move, but it will surely cost the team.
Let’s take a look at what a potential deal between the Heat and Pistons could look like.
