With enough nurturing, better coaching and a more ideal situation, sometimes a player’s “bad contract” can become a good one. Here are three players the Miami Heat could trade for whose value could be worth restoring.

Andrew Wiggins, forward, Golden State Warriors

The Golden State Warriors are in a similar position as the Miami Heat. Golden State has had a longer run with their core guys than Miami. But both teams have to decide if they want to part ways with guys who have been crucial to their teams.

Andrew Wiggins has had an up-and-down career. Wiggins hasn’t been the same player since the 2022 finals and still has three years left on his contract worth $84 million. Wiggins has all the tools to be a high-level wing in the league and has shown it in spurts.

Inconsistent play has been the story of Wiggins’ career. Wiggins struggled this past season, posting career lows in points (13.2), assists (1.7), steals (0.6), and field goals made per game (5.0). Wiggins had some off-the-court issues as well.

But maybe Wiggins is due for a bounce-back season. Miami needs size on the team, and Wiggins would provide that. At 6-foot-8, he can play either forward position and would add much-needed athleticism to Miami’s rotation. Wiggins might not fit Heat Culture, but it may be what Wiggins needs for a bounce-back season.
