According to The Athletic's Shams Charania, Miami sent Houston Avery Bradley and Kelly Olynyk in exchange for Oladipo. The two teams also agreed to a pick swap in next year's draft.
Bradley has averaged 8.5 points for Miami this season, though he’s appeared in just 10 games and is currently dealing with a calf injury. The 30-year-old was on a one-year, $5.6 million deal with the Heat.
Olynyk averaged 10 points and 6.1 rebounds per game for the Heat this season, his fourth with the organization. The 29-year-old is set to become a free agent after the season.
Oladipo reportedly has long-term interest in Heat
The Rockets acquired Oladipo on Jan. 16 from Indiana in the four-team trade that sent James Harden to Brooklyn. Oladipo turned down a reported, two-year, $45.2 million extension from the Rockets, all but signaling his departure before hitting free agency this offseason.
Since Oladipo’s arrival in Houston, the Rockets are 8-24, and just snapped a 20-game losing streak on Monday.
Oladipo averaged 21.1 points, 4.9 assists and 4.7 rebounds per game for the Rockets. The 28-year-old is two years removed from a ruptured quad tendon that sidelined him for a little over a year.
Oladipo can become a free agent after the season, when his initial four-year, $85 million deal he signed with the Oklahoma City Thunder expires. According to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski, Oladipo has had interest in joining the Heat long-term for a while now, too.
Assuming the rest of the year goes well and Oladipo can successfully bolster the Heat's postseason run alongside Jimmy Butler, Miami is in a great position to sign Oladipo to a deal that keeps him with the team next season and beyond.
