Memphis Grizzlies Trade Andre Iguodala to the Miami Heat

Memphis Grizzlies Trade Andre Iguodala to the Miami Heat

According to The Athletic's Shams Charania, Waiters will be part of a huge deal between the Miami Heat and Memphis Grizzlies that will also see National Basketball Association champion Andre Iguodala going to Miami.

The Memphis Grizzlies agreed to trade Iguodala, Jae Crowder, and Solomon Hill to the Miami Heat in exchange for Justise Winslow, Dion Waiters, and James Johnson, sources told ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

The shocking part of the situation is that Woj says Iguodala has agreed to a two-year, $30 million contract extension with the Heat.

Crowder has started all 45 games he has played this season, averaging 9.9 points, 6.2 rebounds, 2.8 assists and one steal over 29.4 minutes per game while shooting 36.8 percent from the floor, 29.3 percent from three-point range and 78.9 percent from the free-throw line.

Bell was averaging 3.3 points and 2.7 rebounds for the Rockets this season, while Caboclo was averaging 2.8 points and 2.0 rebounds for the Grizzlies.

Memphis and Miami were in negotiations with Oklahoma City about a trade that would send Thunder forward Danilo Gallinari to the Heat, but those discussions came to a halt in the hours leading up to the deadline, Wojnarowski adds. The trade could even evolve into a three-team affair.

When the Golden State Warriors traded Andre Iguodala to the Memphis Grizzlies last July, he immediately became a buyout candidate. Iguodala paired with Jimmy Butler is going to make Miami's defense much tougher.

However, it would take a while for the Grizzlies to find a contending team that both wanted Iguodala and his $17 million salary and had the assets the Grizzlies desired.

On Monday, with trade speculation swirling around Iguodala, Grizzlies guard Dillon Brooks didn't mince words when asked about the rumors.

Johnson was averaging 5.7 points and 2.9 rebounds in 18 games this season.
