Jae Crowder to Heat in three-team deal
The Miami Heat have surprised most experts this season by becoming a legitimate contender in the Eastern Conference, and they just bolstered their roster by adding veteran wing Andre Iguodala from the Memphis Grizzlies, according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski. Iguodala has also agreed to a two-year, $30 million extension with Miami, according to Wojnarowski. The deal includes a team option for the 2021-22 season.
Memphis is also sending out Jae Crowder and Solomon Hill in the deal, according to Shams Charania of The Athletic. In exchange, Miami will ship Justise Winslow, Dion Waiters and James Johnson. No picks are involved in the deal. Also involved in the trade are the Timberwolves, who send Gorgui Dieng to Memphis in exchange for Johnson.
