Miami Heat trade Dexter Pittman and 2nd round pick to Memphis

Al Horford, Dexter Pittman

Sources tell Yahoo sports that the Heat have agreed to send Dexter Pittman and a second round pick to the Grizzlies for a trade exception. In three season in South Beach, Pittman averaged 2.8 points per game, 2.0 rebounds per game, and nearly eight minutes an outing. The Miami organization was extremely high on Pittman the last two seasons, giving him multiple chances to prove himself but never panned out. Pittman almost has as many fouls(71) as rebounds(73) which sums up his three year stint in Miami.


Miami has acquired the rights to Ricky Sanchez through trade exception who is now playing in Argentina. Sanchez was drafted by Portland in the 2nd round but was immediately traded to the Nuggets for Jarrett Jack. He’s 6 foot 11 who likes to roam the perimeter and take long jumpers. Sanchez will most likely never see a minute for the Heat.
