Heatbeat Podcast // 10 months ago
We had the privilege of welcoming NBA salary cap expert @AlbertNahmad of HeatHoops.com to help us process the complex Jimmy Butler sign-and-trade scenario. Be ready to take notes about the hard cap and Base Year Compensation (BYC) before getting your trade machine ready.
We also dive deep into:
• Why Miami may be better off rolling over its salary cap space for the summer of 2021? Potential for nearly $100 million-plus in cap space if the Heat plan their moves right.
• What moves Albert would make if he was the Heat’s GM?
• Projecting the future salary cap spikes of the NBA
• How Tyler Johnson was the catalyst for Miami forgoing its cap flexibility…
• Could Miami have done more to retain Dwyane Wade back in 2016?
…and so much more!!!
