Deadman moves to San Antonio.

‘The Athletic’ reported on the 8th (Korean time) that the Miami Heat and San Antonio Spurs had carried out a trade. Dwayne Dedmon and the second round pick go to San Antonio.

Deadman was not drafted, but he is a long-serving center in the NBA. Starting with his Golden State debut in the 2013-2014 season, he has gone through 7 teams and has played in 507 games to date, averaging 6.4 points and 5.8 rebounds.

After two seasons in Atlanta, where he averaged double-digit points per game, Deadmon went downhill after signing with Sacramento. Since then, Deadman, who has continued his career in Miami, has been active as a backup center and even signed a two-year contract renewal last summer.  스포츠토토

However, Deadman’s reduced standing on the team this season has reduced his average playing time to 11.7 minutes. He also seems to have been pushed out of competition with young big man Orlando Robinson.

Dedman, who was mentally shaken, was ejected for throwing a massage gun into the locker room after arguing with the coaching staff during a game against Oklahoma City on January 11th. The massage gun came into the court where the play was in progress, and Dedman, who was sent off, was punished for one game.

More than a month after the ejection, Deadman only appeared in one more game. He has completely lost his place in the team. In the end, Miami decided to let Deadman go.

Miami even used the second-round pick to send Deadman, who was not helping the team much. It is a situation where additional moves can be considered because the trade was carried out without return and the spot was vacated on the roster.

It is Miami where rumors of trades such as Kyle Lowry and Duncan Robinson continue to emerge. Sitting sixth in the Eastern Conference, they are connecting with a lot of players. Deadman’s trade could be a springboard for a follow-up move.

San Antonio, who had room on the salary cap, received Deadman and received a second-round pick, a future asset. San Antonio is also discussing the possibility of trading Jacob Puddle, Josh Richardson, and Doug McDermott, so there remains room to watch.
