Kyle Korver should be a free agent target for the Heat

Just minutes ago, former West Virginia guard Jevon Carter was traded from the Memphis Grizzlies to the Phoenix Suns, according to a report from Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.

While the Los Angeles Lakers, Philadelphia 76ers and Milwaukee Bucks are strong competitors for his services, the Miami Heat need to get in on the action.

The Athletic's Grizzlies beat writer Omari Sankofa II and Suns beat writer Gina Mizell discussed the parameters of the trade, what went wrong with Jackson in Phoenix and if he can turn things around in Memphis.

The 38-year-old played with the Cleveland Cavaliers and Utah Jazz during the 2018-19 campaign where he averaged 8.6 points with 39.7 percent shooting from beyond the arc.

More specifically - the Sixers might be in the running to bring Kyle Korver back to the team that drafted him.

This was the second trade of the day for the Grizzlies, who earlier sent forward Chandler Parsons to the Atlanta Hawks for Solomon Hill and Miles Plumlee. What will they do at point guard now?

The Grizzlies get a free look at Jackson, but have long evaluated Melton as a guard with an National Basketball Association staying power.

Carter spent his rookie season playing for both the Grizzlies and their G League affiliate, the Memphis Hustle.

The sharpshooter has knocked down 42.9% of his 3-point attempts over his 16-year career. He later played six games for the Phoenix Suns, but shot a porous 27.6 percent from the field while averaging 3.7 points.
