Report: Heat, Victor Oladipo re-work one-year, $11M deal into 1+1, $18M contract
Victor Oladipo reportedly agreed to re-sign with the Heat on a one-year, $11 million deal.
But those aren’t the terms of the contract he actually signed.
This gives Miami more breathing room below the luxury-tax line and below the hard cap (which the Heat have yet to trigger).
So, why re-work Oladipo’s deal?
Miami also made a move that appeared foreboding just before the trade deadline. We’re still waiting for the other shoe to drop. Perhaps, these are connected.
Or maybe the Heat have just repeatedly decided at odd times to become more flexible immediately at long-term expense without set reasons for doing so.
