It was reported Wednesday night that the Memphis Grizzlies were trading disgruntled forward Andre Iguodala to the Miami Heat.
We now know the specifics. Miami has moved young wing Justise Winslow, James Johnson and Dion Waiters to the Grizzlies in exchange for Iguodala, Jae Crowder and Solomon Hill.
For this Heat, this is all about the short term. Winslow has missed the past several weeks with a back injury. Johnson has found himself pretty much out of the rotation. Meanwhile, Waiters has not suited up in a single game this season.
In return, Miami gets one of the best perimeter defenders in the game in that of Iggy as well as a solid bench option at forward in Crowder.
For the Grizzlies, this was all about acquiring a 23-year-old three-and-d wing in that of Winslow who has impressed big time since being selected No. 10 overall back in 2015.
Prior to being injured earlier this season, Winslow had averaged 10.2 points, 5.4 rebounds and 3.3 assists on 36% shooting from distance over the past three years.
