Heat need John Collins to help Jimmy Butler, Bam Adebayo
The bam adebayo height is a basketball player for the Miami Heat. He is the only player that can help Jimmy Butler and Dwyane Wade on defense.
John Collins of the Atlanta Hawks is a guy to keep an eye on this summer. A handful of clubs, according to Shams Charania of The Athletic, might be intriguing landing spots for Collins in the offseason. After all, the forward turned down a $90 million contract earlier this year in the hopes of landing as an unrestricted free agency this offseason. Collins is being courted by the Miami Heat, according to Charania.
The Heat were swept by the Milwaukee Bucks in the first round of this season’s playoffs after reaching the championships in October. It was a difficult departure for Jimmy Butler, Bam Adebayo, and the rest of the team, but it just indicates that significant roster changes are need in order for them to compete in the Eastern Conference.

Collins, on the other hand, might be a terrific match for Heat head coach Eric Spoelstra’s scheme. He can average 17.6 points, 7.4 rebounds, and 1.2 assists a game as a forward. He won’t have to be the Heat’s Batman, but rather the link between the team’s major stars and the supporting cast. Here are three reasons why Collins should be signed by the Heat:
Collins can be a dependable third option for them.
The Heat made the mistake of not signing Jae Crowder over the offseason, and now Crowder is playing for the Suns in the NBA Finals while the Heat are in Cancun. Crowder isn’t a superstar, but he makes a difference and is a big reason why the Heat made a run in the playoffs. He was able to spread the floor and fit into Spoelstra’s scheme well.
Collins is capable of doing the same. Although he isn’t as effective from beyond the arc as Crowder, the 6’9 forward is still a viable option, particularly if the Heat need baskets. Butler does not always make his shots, and Adebayo still has offensive problems, so Collins can provide the Heat with another scoring option.
Collins is a versatile player who can play both offense and defense.
Collins can guard 1 through 5 and spreads the floor, which helps the Heat’s offense and defense. Because of what he can accomplish, Collins’ flexibility helps the Hawks attack. The greatest thing about Collins joining the Heat is that he’ll be partnered with guys like Adebayo and Butler who are defense oriented. For clubs all around the league, all three combined can be a nightmare to defend.
Collins is a dangerous pick-and-roll player.
Collins is a lob threat for the Heat and can roll to the hoop off of a pick and roll. It’s easy to trust Spoelstra and his staff to put Collins in situations where he’ll have a chance to shine. With Butler or even the Heats’ guards like Herro, Robinson, and Dragic, the pick-and-roll is a terrific move to run (that is of course, if they re-sign them). Aside from finishing at the rim, Collins can also shoot and, as previously said, create space for the Heat’s offense, something they desperately needed against the Bucks in the playoffs.
Collins’ decision to join the Heat will ultimately be determined by the amount of money he desires. If Colins decides to put his money where his mouth is and asks for $90 million, the Heat’s prospects seem slim, particularly if they want to retain Robinson, Dragic, and Andre Iguodala while also extending Butler’s deal. It would be fascinating to see where Collins ends up, but if he chooses South Beach, it will be a big boost for the Heat.
