Spurs to be involved in Max Strus sign-and-trade with Cedi Osman potentially involved

What’s the buzz on Twitter?

Tim Bontemps @TimBontemps
After losing Gabe Vincent in free agency, the Heat have signed Josh Richardson and re-signed Kevin Love, sources said.
Richardson gives Miami much-needed depth after losing Vincent and likely Max Strus, while Love settled in nicely with the Heat after his buyout from Cleveland. – 8:29 PM
Wes Goldberg @wcgoldberg
Kevin Love was the one I thought the Heat had to get done tonight, even more so when it seemed Vincent and Strus were going to leave. Sensible moves by the Heat to start free agency. – 8:26 PM
Wes Goldberg @wcgoldberg
Josh Richardson has shot 36% from 3 since leaving the Heat. He will be 30 when the season starts. Getting him at the minimum is a steal and is insurance for Strus leaving. – 8:21 PM
Jake Fischer @JakeLFischer
Being told San Antonio is a team to monitor in the developing three-team sign-and-trade talks that could bring Max Strus to Cleveland. The Cavaliers have been trying to find a trade for Cedi Osman this week, sources said. – 8:10 PM

NEW: Gabe Vincent leaving Heat in free agency to join Lakers. Will Max Strus be next?

Gabe Vincent leaves Heat for three-year, $33 million deal with Lakers. sun-sentinel.com/2023/06/30/gab… Still waiting on status of Max Strus in NBA free agency. – 7:34 PM

The Cavaliers are $14.4M below the luxury tax with Caris LeVert’s extension and Georges Niang’s deal.
They’re now hard capped. $21.5M in space below the first apron with 12 players.
They could still potentially fit Max Strus through a sign-and-trade.

Nice heist for Cleveland given the $ they had to work with. Curious how they’ll pull off Strus. – 7:00 PM
Barry Jackson @flasportsbuzz
So Pistons (linked by many to Strus) trade for Joe Harris; Pacers (linked by many to Strus) use cap space on Bruce Brown; and Cavs (who have talked to Heat about Strus sign and trade) use part of midlevel on Niang. Hmmm. – 6:54 PM
Barry Jackson @flasportsbuzz
Niang’s 3 yr 26 M deal with Cavs comes out of nontaxpayer midlevel with Cleveland (per ESPN), leaving some mystery with Strus, who was set to get that midlevel according to one report in past few minutes – 6:49 PM
Mary Schmitt Boyer/Jodie Valade @PDcavsinsider
After a call to Caris LeVert, Miami Heat sharpshooter Max Strus will be one of the first calls the #Cavs plan to make. Sources tell cleveland.com that Strus is at the top of shooting-needy Cleveland’s wish list. cleveland.com/cavs/2023/06/c…5:43 PM
Barry Jackson @flasportsbuzz
There have been no sign and trade scenarios discussed with Vincent (though that could always change). Cleveland wanted Heat to take back a player it didn’t want in a Strus sign and trade and initially balked at Heat request for 2nd rounder; those conversations have been ongoing. – 5:21 PM
Barry Jackson @flasportsbuzz
Where things stand, 45 minutes from free agency, with Strus (likely gone) and Vincent (who isn’t inclined to take Heat offer starting at between 7-8 M). Miami has a little while to raise offer if it changes mind; no indication if they will or lose Gabe: miamiherald.com/sports/nba/mia…5:14 PM

Strus a decent player, but we may be falling prey to the different is better pitfall – 3:49 PM

Tim Reynolds @ByTimReynolds
The floor for Max Strus, as you might have guessed, is very clearly the full mid-level — $12.4M next season. It will be a shock if the team that lands him pays less than that, given some of the numbers being thrown around today. – 2:36 PM

Several nuggets: Cites #Nets interest in Monte Morris, a potential $100 million offer sheet to RFA Cam Johnson, and confirms Cedi Osman as a Brooklyn target, as mentioned in the Post yesterday. #NBA sports.yahoo.com/2023-nba-free-… via @YahooSports – 2:15 PM

Brady Hawk @BradyHawk305
In the circumstance that Vincent and Strus walk, they have to lean on some minimum veterans to replace most likely
The undrafted developments are great, but they always take a bit to flourish
Just like Gabe and Max did
So will be interesting how they pivot – 12:02 PM
Danny Cunningham @RealDCunningham
Over the last two years Max Strus has shot 37.6% on 6.5 3-point attempts per game for the Miami Heat.
He shot 31.9% from 3-point range in this past playoffs for Miami on just under six attempts per game. – 11:40 AM
Ira Winderman @IraHeatBeat
Sign-and-trade transactions for Max Strus and/or Gabe Vincent could be useful for Miami to fill out roster if a significant move is then made, say for a Damian Lillard. Such sign-and-trade exemptions could then take place of the mid-level exceptions Heat no longer qualify for. – 11:27 AM
Barry Jackson @flasportsbuzz
NEW: Pat Riley meets with Gabe Vincent in Southern California and encourages him to re-sign, but Heat offer clearly less than what Vincent would like, putting his return very much in doubt. And Strus likely gone; Heat holding sign and trade talks on him: miamiherald.com/sports/nba/mia…11:07 AM
Barry Jackson @flasportsbuzz
Per source, Heat has spoken to Cleveland and a third team about sign and trade involving Strus, with Strus going to Cavs in this scenario. Heat would get back small assets (not a player, in permutation discussed). – 10:52 AM
Barry Jackson @flasportsbuzz
Everyone should thank Max Strus for his 31 points that kept the Heat from being eliminated by Chicago in play in round and wish him well when a Central Division or AFC North team or whoever pays him a ton of money in next couple days. Nice man & earned everything he got. – 9:35 AM

Max Strus would be a great addition for the Chicago Bulls in free agency this summer. bullswire.usatoday.com/2023/06/29/chi…1:00 AM
Marc Stein @TheSteinLine
NBA matters are especially fluid this time of year — as James Harden’s opt-in in Philly just showed us — and league sources say A) Indiana is a new team to watch in the pursuit of Denver’s Bruce Brown and B) Indiana should NOT automatically be deemed Max Strus’ landing spot. – 9:30 PM
