It is not a big secret that Indiana Pacers guard Victor Oladipo and the Miami Heat have mutual interest in each other.
Oladipo, who recently overcame his knee injury woes earlier this year to be part of the Pacers lineup, is scheduled to become a free agent after the 2020-21 season.
However, that didn’t stop him from having a lengthier-than-usual post-game chit chat with the Heat on Monday which has yet again sparked trade rumors involving the two-time All-Star.
Reports suggest that the Heat have targeted Oladipo as well as reigning MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo of the Milwaukee Bucks to possibly reshape their franchise in a huge way.
Following the Pacers’ 114-92 defeat to the Heat, Oladipo was the Pacers’ leading scorer on Monday, though he only had 14 points. The win gave the Heat an inside track to the No. 4 seed in the Eastern Conference.
Oladipo is a two-time All-Star and has career averages of 17.4 points, 4.6 rebounds and 3.9 assists per game
