The Heat are trading center Dewayne Dedmon and a second-round pick to the Spurs, according to Shams Charania of The Athletic.Dewayne Dedmon

In exchange, the Heat will receive cash considerations, per Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald. The second-round pick is for the 2028 draft, Jackson added.

The move frees up $4.9 million for the Heat to make a trade or sign another veteran player, which is why it’s a smart move for Miami.

Dedmon, 33, is 7-foot-0 and has appeared in 30 games, averaging 5.7 points and 3.6 rebounds. This marks his third season with the Heat.

He has also spent time with the Hawks, Kings, Magic, Warriors and 76ers, and this will mark his second stint with the Spurs, assuming he stays.

Per Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel, the trade “affords the Heat space under the luxury tax to sign a replacement for Dedmon and another player (or convert Orlando Robinson to a standard deal).”
