Just three years ago, Justise Winslow was a lottery pick. Now, he might get traded on draft night.

The Miami Heat don't have a pick in this year's draft, but they are reportedly looking to nab one. In order to do so, they would have to trade a player or two.

According to Bleacher Report's Yaron Weitzman, that player could be Winslow.

Winslow was looked at as a potential star when he came out of Duke in 2015. He projected as an impact two-way player.

He hasn't realized that potential yet, but there were some encouraging signs this year.

Winslow shot a career-best 38 percent from three-point range, and stayed healthy enough to play in 68 games. He was limited to 18 games in 2016-17.

In Miami's playoff series loss to the Philadelphia 76ers, Winslow averaged 9.8 points and 6.6 rebounds per game, including a 19-point, 10-rebound performance in Game 3.

We'll see if he's part of Miami's future after tonight.
