The trade deadline might’ve passed, but don’t forget about Victor Oladipo’s impending return

Article Summary:

Though I believe he was progressing as time passed through those four games, Oladipo averaged just 12.0 points, 3.5 rebounds, 3.5 assists and 1.8 steals in 27.8 minutes per game, shooting a ghastly 37.2 percent from the floor and 23.5 percent from 3-point range. So there might be some upward trajectory in regards to his post defense, but Oladipo has still shown the capability to thwart entry passes against bigger players – an area where he’ll likely have greater opportunity to thrive in with Miami’s switch-heavy scheme.

Nevertheless, if Miami gets even a 75-ish percent of the 2017-18 version of Oladipo, it’s a huge bonus for an already-deep Heat squad that might push them over the top in a seven-game series if the chips fall right for them.
