The Miami Heat may have to look for another star to pair up with Jimmy Butler.

ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski reported Thursday that Bradley Beal, whom the Heat have reportedly coveted, has agreed on a two-year, $72 million contract extension with the Washington Wizards.

According to ESPN’s Bobby Marks, Beal’s contract makes him ineligible to be traded for the entire 2019-20 season.

The contract includes a player option for the 2022-23 season, meaning he’d be eligible to become a free agent during the 2022 summer. The 2022-23 season is also the last year on Jimmy Butler’s contract. The Heat are looking to have cap space during the 2021 summer, after the contracts for James Johnson and Dion Waiters come off the books.
