Mavericks trade Hammons to Heat for center McRoberts

The Miami Heat have traded Josh Mc Roberts to the Dallas Mavericks

The Dallas Mavericks traded center A.J. Hammons to the Miami Heat in exchange for center Josh McRoberts, a future second round pick and cash considerations, the team announced Friday. The center is set to earn a little more than $1.5 million in 2018-19.

After agreeing to sign Kelly Olynyk to an unexpected deal worth $50 million over four years, many wondered what that would mean for James Johnson, an unrestricted free agent in the Miami Heat's frontcourt who was deserving of a nice payday after a breakout 2016-17 season.

The move frees much-needed salary cap space for Miami, which owed McRoberts just over $6 million for next season.

Dallas would become McRoberts' seventh team.

This was the second lucky escape for Fadnavis involving his helicopter. He was driven off towards Nagpur after his chopper failed to lift off.

Prior to another injury-plagued season, McRoberts said during last seasons' training camp of fan frustration over the lack of a payoff, "I completely get it, man". I'm a big white guy who gets hurt all the time. So I completely understand where it comes from. He returned, found his way into the starting lineup and then in December was out again with a stress fracture in the left foot.

The injury forced him to miss the rest of the season.

Hammons was selected in the second round, 46 overall, by Dallas in the 2016 NBA Draft out of Purdue.

He averaged 4.9 points, 3.4 rebounds and 2.3 assists on 37.3 percent shooting from the field and 41.9 percent shooting from three last season. The Mavericks will presumably take on McRoberts' contract in order to acquire the draft pick, not necessarily because they want him.
