Miami and Westbrook have reportedly shared mutual interest, similarly to how the Heat were able to capitalize on Jimmy Butler’s interest in coming to South Beach. The trouble with executing any sort of deal in this case, however, rests in the financials of both teams. As ESPN’s Brian Windhorst reports, the Thunder are hoping to get out of the luxury tax, but the Heat do not have the ability to take on added salary because of the sing-and-trade that they executed to get Butler:
Storyline: Russell Westbrook to Heat?
Eric Pincus: The Clippers send $110,00 (the min requirement) to the Heat in the Jimmy Butler/Whiteside/etc. deal – LAC got Harkless and a Miami protected 1st (lottery protected through 2025, unprotected 2026) and the rights to Mathias Lessort (2017-50th) via Philly – that’s a “wow” trade
