Victor Oladipo would be happy to sign a contract extension with the Indiana Pacers if they could agree to terms, but a source says joining the Miami Heat would be No. 1 on his list should he leave as a free agent in 2021.
The level of interest from the Heat depends on how Oladipo returns from his injury and also the team’s ability to sign a superstar free agent such as Giannis Antetokounmpo. Oladipo lives in Miami in the offseason.
The Pacers could explore trading Oladipo before he hits free agency, but it is doubtful the Heat would sacrifice significant assets in a trade for him at this point.
Oladipo suffered a ruptured quad tendon in January 2019.
