Which team can land Hield this offseason? We present six potential destinations that make sense.
That said, here’s how NBA Twitter reacted to the latest developments and rumors in the league.
Lakers: finally have a stable roster
Pacers: Buddy Hield is finally available for trade

Where should Buddy Hield go?

There is a real case that Buddy Hield is the 2nd-best 3-point shooter in the NBA.
Outside of Steph, there are only 12 times in history where a player has averaged 40% from 3 on at least 8 3PA/G for a season.
Buddy has AVERAGED 40.3% from 3 on 8.3 3PA/G OVER THE LAST SIX SEASONS

3 players that seem guaranteed to be traded this year:
1. Damian Lillard
2. James Harden
3. Buddy Hield
Anyone else you’d say will 100% get moved?

Buddy Hield wants a trade
Before Nets fans get hot and bothered, remember he would be the oldest guy on the team

I think some people are failing to realize the echelon the Buddy Hield is in when it comes to shooting a basketball

The Pacers moving Buddy Hield is the best way to open up playing time for Bennedict Mathurin and Andrew Nembhard!

D'Angelo Russell > Buddy Hield

Tired: Buddy Hield is the shooter that the Bucks need
Wired: Buddy Hield is the salary filler that the Bucks need to do an Andrew Nembhard deal https://t.co/1mRGwGVqgQ

The Bucks, Mavs, Raptors, Magic, Lakers, Heat, Pistons, man — pretty much any team could use a Buddy Hield.
It’s just a matter of what it takes to acquire a 30-year-old sharpshooter on an expiring deal.
