I assume Miami did that on purpose with the thinking that they would eventually deal them at some point.
If the trade leads to success on the field it shouldn't be a problem. We have a very rich owner who will be willing to pay if they are getting a return on their investment.

If the players struggle and the team under performs it could be a big problem.
