Brian Windhorst Reports Miami Heat Needs to Move at Least Three Players to “Get Kyle Lowry”

After a poor start to the 2020-21 NBA season, the Miami Heat have somewhat stabled themselves. However, considering the competition in the league, they might still be one piece away from potentially clinching this season’s championship. They have reportedly begun talks with the Toronto Raptors regarding their point guard Kyle Lowry.

Considering Lowry’s current market value, it won’t be an easy task for last year’s NBA finalists to trade for him. Moreover, renowned NBA insider Brian Windhorst explained this point in a recent ESPN podcast. He said:

If they are going to trade for a guy like Kyle Lowry who makes $30 million. It’s going to take three or four players going out from Miami to get Kyle Lowry back. That means if the trade happens, they will have potentially two or three extra roster spots they don’t have today.”

Trading for Lowry could turn out to be a double-edged sword for Miami. On one hand, they would have to give a few exciting prospects for him, but in return they will get a well-polished veteran.

How can Kyle Lowry fit on the Miami Heat roster?

Currently, the 2020 Eastern Conference champions have a solid roster, but they are still missing a player who can hit big-time shots alongside Jimmy Butler. Lowry could take up that role on the team if he gets traded to South Beach.

Furthermore, the franchise would also expect Lowry to play a leadership role on the team. Like Butler, Kyle has also been in the league for several years. But the only difference between the two stars is that the latter has championship experience under his belt.

That experience, which Lowry will bring to the table, could help the Heat finally end their eight years of championship drought. Do you think the Miami Heat will go for this trade? Let us know your views in the comments section below.
