Heat president Pat Riley referred to Bam Adebayo as a "cornerstone to our franchise," adding that Miami will "do what is in [Adebayo's] best interests."
Riley was blunt about his desire to maximize salary-cap space for the superstar-studded free agent class of 2021. "You all know our numbers," he told reporters. "You know what the situation is, the free agents in ‘20 and ‘21."
