The Grizzlies have acquired 24-year old center Dexter Pittman and a second round pick in the 2013 NBA Draft. The Grizzlies gave up the draft rights to 25-year old shooting guard Ricky Sanchez (currently playing in Argentina) and a trade exception. Pittman played in 4 games (0 starts) for the Heat this year and he averaged 3.0 minutes, 1.5 points and 1.8 rebounds per game. He has now played in 41 games (6 starts) in his first three years in the NBA and he is averaging 7.9 minutes, 2.8 points, 2.0 rebounds and 0.2 assists per game. This was a good move for the Grizzlies as they essentially got Pittman for next to nothing.
