As if NBA Free Agency wasn’t entertaining enough as is, the Miami Heat are reportedly interested in prized big man LaMarcus Aldridge, according to Yahoo Sports’ Adrian Wojnarowski.
In what was originally thought as a vacation out west for Pat Riley, apparently there’s a thick layer of business attached.
As for how the Heat can sign Free Agency’s highest profile big man, it’s initially uncertain which route Pat Riley is thinking. The Heat won’t have the cap space to sign him outright and would likely have to engage in some sort of sign and trade that could feature a key piece like Chris Bosh or Hassan Whiteside.
David Aldridge of NBA.com reports Aldridge canceled a meeting with the Knicks and scheduled one with Riley.
Update: And it gets more interesting — Aldridge reportedly “instigated” the meeting.
