MIAMI (CBSMiami) – The NBA’s trade deadline wasn’t expected to generate a lot of activity from the Miami Heat, but the Heat did make one move before the deadline.
According to Yahoo! Sports’ Marc Spears, the Heat has traded power forward-center Dexter Pittman and a second-round pick to the Memphis Grizzlies in exchange for a trade exception.
A trade exception is similar to salary cap space, except the space can only be used in a trade and can be used in whole or partially for up to one year.
The Grizzlies will take Miami’s 2013 second-round pick in the trade, which based on the current standings would be the 59th selection in the draft.
Pittman had only played in four games for the Heat this season and spent most of the year in the NBA Developmental League.
