    The Miami Heat and Memphis Grizzlies completed a minor trade that helps both teams manage their rosters. The Heat sent raw center Dexter Pittman and their 2013 second-round draft pick to the Grizzlies for the rights to center Ricky Sanchez, who is currently playing in Argentina.


    The trade clears a roster spot for the Heat as they look to add a player, preferably a big man, who is a free agent or that might become available via buyout before March 1. The Heat recently expressed interest in free-agent big man Kenyon Martin.

    The Grizzlies only had 12 players on their roster and needed to add a player. They used a trade exception to absorb Pittman's salary.

    Pittman has spent most of this season in the D-League. He played in just four games, averaging 1.5 points, with the Heat.

    Sanchez will likely never play in the NBA. He was drafted by the Portland Trail Blazers in 2005 and his rights have been traded three times since.

    Sanchez is probably the most traded player who's never set foot on a court.
