Heat - Knicks

Heat gets:
Hardaway Jr.
Burke (expiring)

Knicks gets:
Ellington (expiring)
Mcgruder (expiring)
2019 1st rd pick (lottery protected, converts to two 2nd rd picks if it doesn't convey)

Heat save money this year and gets a starting PG in Burke while Dragic is out.

Knicks save money next year and gets a late pick (or two 2nds)

maybe without the picks. But even then Miami is going to say no. They're not a franchise that takes bad contracts and rebuilts by the long way.
NY clears money for the 2020 free agent market, so they can do this without the picks.

But the Heat aren't winning this year, so why take on so much extra cap for the next few years (mainly THJ) for really a plug in of Burke.

Don't have to win to make the playoffs in the east!
