3 possible trade destinations for Heat’s Duncan Robinson
The Miami Heat are in the midst of a strong 2021-22 regular season, but there’s a chance their roster could get shaken up in the NBA offseason.
Perhaps the name to watch the most right now is Duncan Robinson, who signed a five-year, $90 million contract extension last offseason. He started the season slowly but has since raised his 3-point percentage to 37.1 and is shooting 43.6 percent since the All-Star break.
Tyler Herro is expected to sign a new contract soon and after the signing of Kyle Lowry, there isn’t much room to pay for all of their current talent if the goal is to avoid luxury tax payments.
For a team looking for a dynamic catch-and-shoot threat, Robinson would be an intriguing option to consider. It’s not easy to find movement shot threats accustomed to converting under heavy pressure.

Let’s take a look at three possible trade destinations for Duncan Robinson should the Miami Heat consider a move in the upcoming NBA offseason.
