Foster was accused of not being able to account for $1.5 million, before he then levied an allegation that LaVar had embezzled $2.5 million from their companies. Asked about the future of the company, considering Foster’s pending civil suit, LaVar went on the offensive. “Alan Foster, what he gonna do? Everything he’s done is false, it’s fake,” LaVar said. “It’s just like the documents that’s been signed. They’ll find out that he forged them. Therefore, I’m still gonna go forward… he don’t stop nothing. His last name is Foster. Originally, we are a family brand. I tried to help him out by bringing him into the family. That’s why I don’t worry about the things that he says, and the childish things.”

Indiana guard Victor Oladipo: A source said Oladipo likes Indiana and would be happy staying there with a big new contract, but that if he were to leave, Miami would be No. 1 on his list. But Heat’s interest will depend entirely on how he plays next season and Miami’s success in trying to lure a bigger fish.
Indiana could trade him over the next year – rather than lose him for nothing – but it’s doubtful Miami would sacrifice major assets for Oladipo in a trade, partly because nobody knows if he will return to his former All Star form.
While Antetokounmpo expressed respect for the Heat, there has been nothing tangible to suggest any specific interest in playing here, putting Miami on par with potentially Dallas, Toronto and a few others if he decides to leave Milwaukee. At the very least, his respect for Bam Adebayo (they share the same agent) and the Heat’s cache would very likely earn a meeting in 2021 if he bypasses a Bucks extension this summer.
San Antonio power forward LaMarcus Aldridge: He’s no longer the All Star that Pat Riley took to dinner five years ago. But even at 35, he’s still quite effective, averaging 18.9 points and 7.4 rebounds last season and shooting 38.9 percent on threes. If the top names on Miami’s 2021 priority list don’t materialize, Aldridge would be a possibility on a one-year deal. He also could be a trade option this offseason.
New Orleans guard Jrue Holiday: He can opt out of $26.3 million in 2021-22 and become a free agent next summer, and he would dramatically improve Miami’s perimeter defense and give the Heat more scoring punch. The Heat really likes his game. If he maintains this past season’s production (19.1 points, 6.7 assists, 35.3 on threes), Holiday would be in line for max money in 2021.
Clippers forward Paul George: He has a $37 million player option for 2021-22 but could opt out for the security of a final long-term max deal next summer. There has always been Heat admiration for his game, despite the early playoff exits with OKC and the Clippers the past three years.
