Shams: Heat 'prepping to go all-in' for GiannisOctober 15, 2020 | 09:55 AM
The Miami Heat are preparing to go "all in" on its pursuit of Giannis Antetokounmpo should the two-time MVP become a free agent at the end of next season.
Analysis: It's important to remember in all of the Giannis-related rumors that there's no guarantee that he hits the open market next offseason. Milwaukee can offer him a super-max extension this offseason, and while many believe that it would be in his best interest to refuse to sign and test the open market he may believe that the positives of re-signing outweigh the negatives. The Heat angle has been discussed for quite some time now, with the volume growing loudest during the second-round series that Miami won in five games. And with 2021 in mind, the Heat have long been reported to have the desire to maintain maximum cap flexibility in preparations for free agency. Giannis appears to be the franchise's top target, but once again there's no guarantee that he'll be a free agent.
