The Miami Heat traded centre Meyers Leonard and Oklahoma’s 2027 pick for Oklahoma City Thunder striker Trevor Ariza, insider Shams Charania reported on his Twitter page.
The deal is almost complete. The parties are waiting for Leonard to sign the agreement.
Leonard found himself at the centre of a scandal this month. He broadcast on Call of Duty on Twitch, where he repeatedly used obscene language and used derogatory slang for Jewish nationality people. Leonard was withdrawn from Miami for an indefinite period.
He subsequently apologized to the club owner, teammates, coaches, staff, fans, and anyone else related to Miami. Leonard admitted that he did not know the meaning of the offensive slang word.
