A: Even if the team agrees to establish a replacement sign, it still boils down to the player being willing to move to a specific destination, just like when Jimmy Butler targeted the Heat in the 2019 offseason. I’m not sure the Clippers would be a destination for Goran Dragic, nor do I believe the Heat would ever dare push to accept a destination of their choice. Plus, such a move by the Heat would leave you without an upper protégé, even if you believe Tyler Herro could make the transition to the full-time thing. As for Paul George, at this point we’re not sure how he fits or where he fits, let alone with Jimmy Butler. In the playoffs, he barely looked like the obligatory player the Clippers overpaid for during the 2019 season at the Thunder store. If the Heat were to go with a big store this season, I think it could be in a different direction than towards Paul George. Of course, if the price was right. . .
