Spoelstra: Trade Gives ‘roster flexibility’
(Dexter) Pittman was dealt before Thursday’s trading deadline, along with a second-round pick, in exchange for Memphis’ trade exception and a foreign jump-shooting center (Ricky Sanchez) who was drafted back in 2005, plays in Argentina and isn’t all that likely to play in the United States.
So what was the point?
“Roster flexibility,” Erik Spoelstra said.
That means creating a roster spot for a veteran who shakes free through a buyout.
