Report: Heat trade Dedmon, 2nd-round pick to Spurs
Miami is receiving cash considerations in exchange, which creates enough financial flexibility to add two standard contracts or one veteran player and remain under the tax line, reports Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald.
It's the first time Miami has ever completed a trade with San Antonio, according to Tim Reynolds of The Associated Press.
Dedmon had fallen out of the Heat's rotation in recent weeks. After averaging 7.6 points in 12.6 minutes per contest across 18 contests through November, the 33-year-old had since played in just 12 of Miami's 32 games, averaging just 10.3 minutes.
On Jan. 10, Dedmon played just under five minutes against the Oklahoma City Thunder before being ejected for angrily throwing a massage gun onto the court after being substituted. The Heat announced a one-game suspension without pay the following day, though Dedmon ultimately sat for 11 straight contests before finally playing again in the team's most recent game Saturday against the Milwaukee Bucks.
