Heat decided to pass on Bradley Beal due to tax consequences?

“It was out there that Miami decided not to bite on Beal because they were playing for (Portland’s Damian) Lillard,” a league source told Heavy Sports. “It really wasn’t that; it was tax consequences with Beal that really caused them to back off. The new tax is much more onerous. “And I think part of it was that Beal said he wouldn’t give up the no-trade clause in his contract (after the initial deal was complete).”

More on this storyline

Marc Stein: Miami did not go all in with its Bradley Beal pitches even though Miami was thought to be right at the top in terms of Bradley Beal’s preferred destinations and with that no-trade clause that he and Mark Bartelstein negotiated a year ago, they had this uncommon control of the trade process, that Washington was basically going to have to accept the destination that Bradley Beal picked because of that no-trade clause, the only no-trade clause only full no-trade clause, active in the league at this point, only the 10th no-trade clause that’s ever been negotiated in the NBA because they’re really hard to get in the NBA. -via Apple Podcasts / June 20, 2023
The Phoenix Suns have received trade interest in Deandre Ayton since they acquired Bradley Beal. “We’ll see if he’s going to be there. I do think one thing that has happened since this trade is Phoenix has been getting a lot of calls on Deandre Ayton in the last 12 to 18 hours,” Shams Charania said on the Pat McAfee Show. “Teams seeing if now Deandre Ayton is a little bit more attainable. We’ll see if he’s back on the team next year.” -via RealGM / June 19, 2023
