Miami Trade Rumors Are Heating Up

The Miami Heat, like most teams, have been dealing with a ton of injuries and COVID absences. The team is currently sitting at 6-7 and on the outside looking in at the early playoff picture. While they are only a couple games back of climbing the ladder in the East, the roster may look a little bit different doing so.

Rumors have begun to swirl on Kendrick Nunn's availability. The Heat point-guard has been averaging 9.9 points, 2.9 rebounds and 2.3 assists so far this season. Even though Nunn started 67 games last season, so far this season he's done nothing but come off the bench and seen his production drop because of it. 

Last season he was all-rookie and runner up for the rookie of the year and averaged 15.3 points per game. Teams have begun to call the Heat to inquire what it would take to take Nunn off their hands. 

When recently asked about the trade rumors that have recently popped up, Nunn responded:  

I pretty much block them out unless my agent contacts and tells me that there’s a possibility that I could get traded. Anything on social media and stuff, obviously I’m on there so it comes up and I read it, but I try to just ignore it and stick to what my team tells me.

Keep an eye on the Heat as they have been linked to multiple big names and are looking to add another star to their mix for another deep playoff run. We'll just have to wait and see if it's Nunn going the other way.
