The Heat has expressed interest in trading for Cleveland Cavaliers guard J.R. Smith’s unique contract in a move that could create more spending flexibility for Miami this offseason, according to The Athletic’s Shams Charania.

As we reported last week, NBA officials who spoke to the Heat say Miami remains intent on trying to trade one of a few contracts with multiple years remaining, with James Johnson and Dion Waiters considered available on the trade market.

Whether Miami would have interest in trading Johnson or Waiters for essentially nothing but cap relief is unclear. It’s also unclear if Cleveland would have interest in assuming the final two years and $31 million of Johnson’s deal or the final two years and $25 million of the contract for Waiters, who previously played for Cleveland.

Dwight Howard is finalizing contract buyout with Memphis and plans to sign with the Los Angeles Lakers as free agent, league sources tell @TheAthleticNBA @Stadium.
