What about the Miami Heat?? Whiteside could be his DJ-type lob partner. Dragic/Waiters/Johnson are all good with the ball in their hands, but still serviceable off the ball. That team would be fast, athletic and have an alpha dog in Griffin — but still be competitive if he went down with his usual 20-game injury.
It makes sense for a team like Miami or Denver to go after Paul George as their first step toward landing Blake or Millsap in free agency too. It feels like one of those times when Indy is moving so fast that PG could just end up on one of the random teams instead of Boston or L.A. where everyone’s expecting.
