Heat to waive Kyle Lowry if unable to trade him?

According to two sources, the Heat has been giving thought to potentially using the waive-and-stretch provision on Lowry if Miami is unable to trade him, though a firm decision on that has not been made. That waive-and-stretch mechanism would allocate his remaining cap hit equally over three seasons.

If Blazers wants no part of Lowry or Robinson contracts, a package of Herro, Caleb, Jovic and Vic’s expiring contract (once he opts in for $9.5 million by Thursday), plus 3 first-round picks also would work. More Heat $ would be needed if Jurkic in deal.

Bradley Beal, who waived his no trade clause to accept the deal, also would have been willing to be dealt to the Heat. But Washington ultimately preferred the Suns’ offer. Washington will receive guards Chris Paul and Landry Shamet, multiple second-round picks and the ability to swap multiple first-round picks. Sources close to Beal, the Heat and Wizards said Miami made an offer — which was believed to be built around Kyle Lowry and Duncan Robinson — but Phoenix was more aggressive pursuing the trade in recent days. -via Miami Herald / June 18, 2023
