It's a cost-cutting move for the Heat, with HoopsHype's Yossi Goslan pointing out that the Heat go from $192,895 below the luxury tax to $4.9 million below, while also generating a $4.7 million trade exception.
Dedmon has fallen out ot the Heat's rotation, having only played once in their last 10 games. In the 30 games he's played in this season for Miami, he has averaged 5.7 points and 3.6 rebounds.
