The Miami Heat are considered a "legitimate suitor" for star guard Bradley Beal if he hits free agency this summer, according to Shams Charania of The Atlantic.
After 10 seasons with the Washington Wizards, all eyes will be on the three-time All-Star when he can opt out and become an unrestricted free agent this offseason.
The Heat currently sit in the top seed in the Eastern Conference with a core that includes Bam Adebayo, Jimmy Butler, Tyler Herro and Kyle Lowry. Miami would have to complete a sign-and-trade deal for Beal if he wants to join the team.
Beal recently said that he is leaning toward re-signing with the Wizards this offseason, and he is eligible for a five-year, $245.6 million max contract.
Beal underwent season-ending surgery on Feb. 10 to repair a torn ligament in his left wrist. Prior to that, he averaged 23.2 points, 4.7 rebounds and a career-high 6.6 assists on the season.
