Report: Heat have expressed interest in Draymond Green

This is coming out of nowhere. Miami has called the Warriors about Dray. Would Golden State even consider moving him?

The Miami Heat are interested in Golden State Warriors G/F Draymond Green, per beat reporter Greg Leif Sylvander.

This is the first I’m seeing of any trade chatter surrounding Green so far this season. Nothing appeared to be imminent and I can’t imagine why the Dubs would deal Draymond at this point. We know D’Angelo Russell’s name is out there, though he likely won’t be dealt until the offseason. So, why is Dray popping up? Well, the Heat have some attractive young pieces and because of their position in the East, they have every reason to go big and chase a title. Green would form an impressive two-way lineup alongside Jimmy Butler and Bam Adebayo. Miami could dangle young guards in Kendrick Nunn, Duncan Robinson and Tyler Herro in a potential trade.
