I guess it only matters relative to the kind of contract he'd be looking for but if I'm the Heat I'd definitely want to find some answers to those questions before investing anything significant. Don't think Spo could handle another Whiteside situation lol
My memory is there may have been some maturity issues, but I'm not 100% sure on that. As we've seen before, sometimes it's just about being in the right situation at the right time. Detroit needed someone to step up, and he did that in spades.
He's certainly an intriguing piece. In the end, the 2021 dream will probably mean we steer clear unless we go for a big 1yr deal, but even then, it doesn't help us with bird rights the following off-season regardless.
Unless he can be had for cheap, can't see it happening - despite the fact he's basically what we need in a PF next to Bam.
The other one worth monitoring is Lauri Markkanen. He certainly had a down year this year in a pretty dysfunctional Bulls team, but he has a lot of the tools that would fit next to Bam too. Defensively, he's not the player Wood is, but offers superior range.
