Johnson is entering the third season of a four-year, $60 million free agent deal he signed with the Heat in the summer of 2017 following that breakout season. With a 2019-20 salary of $15.3 million, he’s the third-highest paid player on Miami’s roster behind only Jimmy Butler ($32.7 million) and Goran Dragic ($19.2 million). But that doesn’t mean Johnson feels like he’s entitled to getting his starting spot back. “Whatever Coach Spo puts me at, the minutes, whatever, I’m going to be OK with that,” he said. “I’m at a point in my career where I work hard, I play and I do whatever I have to do. If I was to complain about that, then we wouldn’t have no UD in our locker room.”
Cuban did not discuss specific players in his email but said “I was sitting in the room full of people when the call was discussed and we put the trade we thought was happening on our board. We later discussed trade kickers and added a player to make it work. They obviously thought they heard something else.” Cuban said “there was absolutely nothing malicious that went on.” And Cuban made this clear, too: “We get along great with the Heat and have done many deals with them. Wires just got crossed somehow.” The Mavericks have great respect for Dragic but were hoping to use their cap space in other ways and found what they hope will be their long-term point guard solution in Delon Wright.
The price is really the issue. Most rebuilding teams with holes at point guard — or just lots of holes — expressed little interest in giving up any real assets for Westbrook, sources say. That might have changed by Dec. 15, when most free agents signed this week become trade-eligible again — and by which point some team will feel more desperate than it does today. But given the initial cool response to Westbrook’s availability, the Thunder were correct to pounce early. (I have said many times I would not have given up any real assets for Westbrook. The Heat trading Goran Dragic and blah contracts for him seemed like a fair endgame. The market was indeed cool. But remember the old NBA adage: It only takes one.)

Storyline: Russell Westbrook Trade
This kind of push-and-pull infected talks between Houston and Oklahoma City on Thursday. (Talks between the Heat and Thunder had quieted by then, sources say.) The Rockets tried to coax Oklahoma City into taking Houston’s 2020 first-rounder, sources say. Oklahoma City refused, and pushed for picks further out. Houston relented, and the two settled on Houston’s 2024 and 2026 picks — both with just top-four protection.
