The $82 million "Perfect Fit" trade proposal for the Miami Heat

If there is a cause for the recent surge in Miami Heat trade speculations surrounding DeMar DeRozan, it can most certainly be linked back to 2018. That was, of course,

when DeRozan was the main asset given to San Antonio in exchange for Kawhi Leonard. The Raptors went on to win a championship with Leonard, while DeRozan was never given the opportunity to compete for a championship.

DeRozan hasn't even come close, in actuality. He participated in two post-season series: one with the Bulls and one with the Spurs. However, since leaving the Raptors, he has failed to make it past the first round. And he's 34 years old, and he wants to alter that badly.

Nothing could please Erik Spoelstra more than to see that through. DeRozan would give the coach the kind of adaptable, high-scoring power forward he is currently lacking in the Miami Heat deal. 

 Given that the Heat do not intend to add more money to their future ledger, DeRozan could be a wonderful fit for them. He is currently in the final year of a three-year, $82 million contract that he signed in Chicago.

One Eastern Conference executive told Heavy Sports, "DeMar DeRozan would be the one that has legs out of all the players out there that people are floating for the Heat,

they're not close to doing anything now." "He is the closest thing they will find to what they are searching for." Really, a perfect match.

Furthermore, the Heat are getting close to what DeMar DeRozan wants. While he still has the opportunity, he really wants to be a productive player and win a title.
