The Miami Heat have officially shocked the NBA world, with landing Andre Iguodala. Pat Riley kept everything quiet, with trading for the two-way star, as they scored another player alongside captain Jimmy Butler. The team agreed to a two-year extension, worth $30 million through 2022 (per team option).
Miami sends Justice Winslow as part of the deal, which frees up a roster spot and cap for them to go after Danilo Gallinari. The Los Angeles Lakers were the team many thought Iggy would sign with, but the team has no salary cap flexibility Miami would offer.
With the team option set in place for the 2022 season, Iggy allows the Heat cap flexibility for free agency. This means, that Miami will be looking to target a super-max free agent for the summer of 2021.
UPDATE: The final pieces are coming together and as part of a 6-player trade, the HEAT are trading Dion Waiters, Justice Winslow and James Johnson to the Grizz for Andre Iguodala, Solomon Hill and Jae Crowder.
Memphis has agreed to a deal to send Andre Iguodala to Miami, league source tells ESPN. Iguodala agreed to trade and has agreed to a two-year, $30M extension with Miami.
