Madar did not turn 20 until midway through the season. He will not turn 21 until December. He was just a kid when Diebler starred on some great teams at Ohio State. The age gap between the two teammates, about 13 years, was clear to Diebler, now 33. Still, Diebler said during a phone conversation Tuesday, Madar carried himself like a far more experienced player.

The Heat are among the least flexible teams in the league in terms of being able to make in-season moves. After rehauling their roster to sign Lowry and Tucker, extending Butler and signing many players to minimum contracts, they only have three players on the roster that can currently be traded. Theirtrade flexibility will open up in December and January once free agents that were signed become eligible to be traded, but they severely lack tradeable salaries. After their starters, most of whom seem very likely not to be moved, their next highest salary is Tyler Herro at $4.0 million. His salary combined with several of their minimum players will heavily limit the type of return they can get in a trade. They are also just $6.6 million below the hard cap, which is another factor that could hold them back from adding significant money to the payroll.
