Dexter Pittman Traded to the Memphis Grizzlies
Backup Center for the Miami Heat and often member of the Sioux Falls Skyforce was traded from the Miami Heat to the Memphis Grizzlies today.
In the deal, the Heat also sent a 2nd Round Pick in this years draft for the rights to Ricky Sanchez who is currently playing in Argentina.
This trade allows the Heat to possibly add another big man, preferably in free agency and have targeted free agent Kenyon Martin who is currently available.
Dexter spent most of the season in the D-League with the SIoux Falls Skyforce, averaging 1.5 points per game with the Heat in just four games.
Reporters are that Sanchez will likely never play in the NBA. He was drafted by the Portland Trailblazers in 2005 and his rights have been traded three times since.
