Miami Heat trade Dewayne Dedmon to San Antonio Spurs
Following a quiet Monday in the NBA, outside of the Kyrie Irving deal being finalized, Tuesday opened with the first small deal of the week. Already shopping Kyle Lowry, the Miami Heat have now traded Dewayne Dedmon to the San Antonio Spurs as first reported by Shams Charania.

|Dewayne Dedmon||Cap space|
|2nd round pick|
It’s purely a financial deal for Miami. Dedmon held a $4.7 million cap hit this season and trading him off the roster creates more wiggle room to add salaries before the NBA trade deadline. According to Yossi Gozlan of HoopsHype, the Heat will go from $192,895 under the luxury tax to $4.9 million below. As for the Spurs, they pick up a future second-round pick and have a roster spot to absorb Dedmon. Expect Miami to be aggressive at the NBA trade deadline, even with limited assets to move.
Kyrie Irving heads to the Dallas Mavericks (Feb. 5)
|Dallas Mavericks get||Brooklyn Nets get|
|Kyrie Irving||Spencer Dinwiddie|
|Markieff Morris||Dorian Finney-Smith|
|2029 1st-round pick|

The Brooklyn Nets superstar guard stunned the NBA world this week when it was revealed that he had officially requested a trade out of New York. The demand for an escape from the Empire State came after Irving’s representatives pushed for a contract extension so the seven-time All-Star could remain in Brooklyn long-term.
Kyrie Irving bringing his talents to Dallas is a massive acquisition for the Mavericks. The team is currently sitting in the sixth spot in the Western Conference and only two games over .500 with a record of 28-26. Losing star guard Jalen Brunson in free agency to the New York Knicks this summer was a tremendous hit to their roster, and it has shown in their play in 2022-2023.
Rui Hachimura traded to the Los Angeles Lakers (Jan. 23)

While this move is far from a blockbuster, and it’s unlikely to spark the Lakers toward a playoff push, it does help balance the roster. But what exactly can LeBron James, Anthony Davis, and the rest of the Lakers roster expect to get out of Hachimura?
While he entered the league as a talented, yet raw prospect needing to improve, Hachimura has largely been the same player he was when he was drafted four years ago.
- Rui Hachimura stats in 2022-23: 13 PPG, 4.3 RPG, 48% FG, 33% 3PT
Still, as is, Hachimura can chip in ten-plus points per game, and he has the ability to go off every now and then.
