As the Miami Heat pursue trade scenarios for Kevin Durant and Donovan Mitchell, the name of Bam Adebayo has surfaced as the player on their roster with the most trade value. The Heat, for obvious reasons, would prefer to retain Adebayo at all costs.
“It is what it is, control what you can control,” said Adebayo when asked about trade rumors. “Obviously it’s an opportunity for something, but in my opinion, control what you can control. I can’t control that.
“So do what I’ve been doing. I get up early. I work out. Having fun with these kids. And I’m going to go home and go to sleep.”
Adebayo signed a five-year, $163 million extension with the Heat in 2020.
