With the Damian Lillard sweepstakes fully in motion, the Miami Heat have decided to put all other potential roster moves on the back burner until the situation with Lillard is resolved, according to the Miami Herald's Barry Jackson.

With their high payroll that goes well into the luxury tax and is nearing the second apron, the Heat can only afford to hand out minimum contracts like the ones they gave to Josh Richardson and Thomas Bryant.

But Miami has stopped offering minimum contracts to free agents while waiting to see whether Lillard will land in South Florida, per Jackson.

Jackson reported that the are a couple key reasons why Miami is pausing all of its free agent business. First, it already has 13 players on its roster and might end up taking back more players than it sends away in a potential Lillard deal. Also, it won't know what positions to target in free agency until after the trade is made
