NBA Trade Rumors: Heat Working on 'Elaborate' Three-Team Deal to Acquire Gallinari


The Miami Heat are reportedly working to acquire both Andre Iguodala and Danilo Gallinari before Thursday's trade deadline.

After the Heat and Grizzlies reportedly agreed on a trade that involved Iguodala and Justise Winslow, ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reported that Oklahoma City may be added to the deal. The teams are working on a three-team transaction that would send Gallinari to Miami along with Iguodala, according to Wojnarowski.

To make the deal work, Miami may have to release protections on a 2023 first-round pick the Heat owe the Thunder, per Wojnarowski. Iguodala has reportedly already agreed to a two-year contract extension with Miami.
