At the moment, the Miami Heat are still in possession of the No. 27 pick for Thursday's 2022 NBA Draft. This could change at any given moment now that reports have emerged about Miami's willingness to part ways with the pick.

It won't be cheap, though. Any opposing team that might be looking to take the No. 27 pick out of the Heat's hands will need to give up a couple of major assets in order to make this deal come to fruition. This report comes via Miami insider Greg Sylvander of Five Reasons Sports:

Heat have explored acquiring a future 1st rd pick (likely Top 16 protected, preferably in 25 or 26) + a 2nd rd pick in tonight’s draft for #27 per source. Key element to scenario may be a coveted player slipping. Only handful of prospects would persuade them to keep 27.

Apparently, the Heat aren't very interested in scooping up a new player out of this year's draft — at least not with the 27th pick. They are now reportedly looking to trade all the way down to the second round, given that they also acquire a future first-rounder in a potential deal.

It goes without saying that Pat Riley is one of the most masterful front office executives in the game today, so if he wants a deal, then he will probably get it done.
