The Miami Heat have been the only NBA home that Duncan Robinson has ever known.
But it might not be his home for much longer if the latest reports are to be believed.

The Heat are apparently making Robinson available in trade talks, according to the latest reporting from Mike Scotto.
There was a time when the thought of Miami trading Robinson would be shocking but that time has passed.
Now it feels as if it’s only a matter of time before this young, popular player finds a new place in the league to call his own.
Robinson is averaging 6.3 points, 2.2 rebounds, and 1.3 assist a game in the 2022-23 season.
Those are his lowest totals since his rookie year.
And he’s only playing 17.5 minutes a game, which is also a career-low – plus he hasn’t started in any games.
It’s quite clear that Heat have already moved past Robinson and he isn’t the crucial part of the team that he once was.
But that doesn’t mean he wouldn’t serve a great purpose on another team.
In fact, if Robinson can improve some of his stats – especially his three-point shooting – he could be a great trade asset.
There was a time when he was sinking 47% of his shots from downtown, which would certainly be attractive to just about every other team in the league.
Perhaps if Robinson is able to find a team that can give him more time on the court and more responsibility, he will play as he used to.
Robinson’s name has been tossed around as a possible trade chip for months now so it’s not surprising to hear the rumor mill churn up this latest report.
Will it actually result in Robinson moving on?
