Max Strus is another Miami Heat player who could be in line for a big payday this offseason. But as was the case with Gabe Vincent, the Utah Jazz must be calculated with a potential offer. Unlike Vincent, who is likely going to command more money on the open market, I believe that there’s a better chance that a player like Strus could end up working out for the Jazz. He fits the team’s system and could make sense as somewhat of a specialist for the team.
What it will ultimately come down to is how much he’s going to cost. Right now, that’s a big question mark. Strus was more productive this season for the Heat, but he was less efficient with his 3-point jumper. And that could end up costing him millions in the long run. I *think* a team (whether it’s the Heat or someone else) is going to be able to sign Strus in the $10–15 million per year range.
If that were the case, I’d be shocked the Heat didn’t retain him. However, if that is the number, it wouldn’t be surprising if the Jazz tried their hardest to pry him away from Miami. But anything above that, the Jazz should pass.
