The Heat appear to still be pursuing Russell Westbrook.
Miami and the Thunder continue to discuss a deal for the 30-year-old star, according to a report from the Miami Herald. The sides, however, have “competing financial interests,” which could hold up a trade, the report says.
The two teams have talked about “potential combinations of players,” according to the report. Miami is hoping to hold onto center Bam Adebayo and guard Tyler Herro – who it selected with the No. 13 pick in the 2019 draft – the report says.
Westbrook “welcomes the idea” of the Thunder trading him, according to an earlier report from ESPN, and the Heat are a destination that “appeals” to him.
