Miami Heat Rumors
The idea of Miami trading veteran floor general Kyle Lowry for Irving has been discussed in league circles since December, while Lowry’s performance has declined in the second season of a three-year contract, and league personnel are certainly under the impression the Heat would move Lowry if the right deal presented itself. But it would seem unlikely that Brooklyn, with its designs on contending, would happily take back Lowry in exchange for Irving.

Following the $32 billion collapse of cryptocurrency exchange FTX a 115 page document lists every entity it owes money to. There are a myriad of companies and government entities, sports teams and athletes including the Miami Heat, Shaquille O’Neal, David Ortiz, MLB along with the Golden State Warriors listed as creditors.
John Hollinger: Jimmy Butler: 4th among Eastern Conference players in PER, 3rd in BPM, 4th in EPM, and despite supposedly not playing enough games, 7th in VORP. Should have been second name on every East coach’s ballot after Embiid; leaving him out entirely was insane.
Barry Jackson: Bam – who makes his second All Star game – ranks 4th among all NBA centers in scoring, 8th in rebounding, 6th in assists and is one of league’s best defenders. Obviously deserving… Jimmy Butler had a very strong case for his 7th All Star bid but doesn’t get the nod this year.
