Hawks waive C Dexter Pittman.

Pittman, who won a championship with the Heat in 2011-12, was never expected to make Atlanta's final roster. He played nine minutes in his lone preseason appearance and will likely spend his days overseas or in the D-League this year.

The Atlanta Hawks have signed Dexter Pittman to a training camp contract.

The 26-year-old only played three regular season minutes during the 2013-14 season after spending much of it in the D-League. Despite owning a championship ring, Pittman will not provide any fantasy value if he makes the Hawks roster.

Dexter PIttman signed with Caciques de Humacao over the weekend.

The Rockets signed him quickly after waiving Greg Smith earlier this month, but Pittman didn't even play. He's still overweight and will have a tough time getting back in the NBA.

The Rockets plan to release Dexter Pittman and sign free agent Josh Powell.

These minor roster tweaks may have implications for the Rockets postseason, but they're irrelevant for fantasy purposes.

Rockets sign C Dexter Pittman.

The team will waive an unhealthy Greg Smith and to get some more depth. The Rockets have been playing Donatas Motiejunas out of position at center in the past week, so it's currently a thin area with Dwight Howard (ankle) still out. Obviously, Pittman should not be picked up in fantasy leagues.

Hawks release F/C Dexter Pittman.

Pittman was brought in as a warm body for the injury-depleted Hawks' frontcourt, but the 25-year-old only played three total minutes in two games with Atlanta. Pittman's release should pave the way for the Hawks to sign Mike Muscala.

Hawks sign F/C Dexter Pittman.

The Hawks are toast in the frontcourt tonight with Paul Millsap, Pero Antic and Gustavo Ayon, so the team waived Jared Cunningham to get another big man for tonight. If Pittman does get on the court, it should be interesting to see what kind of shape he's in. It's only a 10-day deal and it's worth noting he's played just 17.5 minutes per game in the D-League this year.

The Bulls waive F/C Dexter Pittman and F D.J. White.

Pittman is more known for being such a big guy than anything and he listed at 285 pounds, which is probably on the low side. He'll have a tough time making most NBA teams for lack of conditioning.

Dexter Pittman will join the Bulls for training camp.

Pittman turned down an offer to play in Italy, preferring to fight for an end-of-bench role with Chicago. He played just 10 games last season before being waived by the Grizzlies and he's a longshot to make the Bulls' roster.

Grizzlies waive F/C Dexter Pittman.

Memphis traded their second-round pick to get Pittman, so we can probably chalk this up as the most meaningless trade of the year. He played in seven games with Memphis, averaging 2.9 minutes per contest.

Dexter Pittman is questionable to be available on Friday for the Grizzlies.

Pittman's availability will depend on whether or not his physical is completed in time, but he won't have relevance in fantasy leagues despite the move to Memphis.

The Heat have reportedly traded Dexter Pittman and a second-round draft pick to the Grizzlies, in exchange for a trade exception.

The trade deadline has been whisper quiet and this Pittman deal has zero impact in fantasy leagues, as he'll simply reprise his end-of-bench role for a new team. The Heat now have an open roster spot, and the trade exception gives them additional flexibility in future trade talks.

The Heat and Grizzlies are reportedly in "serious talks" involving C Dexter Pittman.

The Grizz would use their trade exception to get Pittman and a second-round pick from the Heat. Although Miami is woefully shallow on the front line, the 6'11/275 Pittman has appeared in just four games all year.
Thu, Feb 21, 2013 01:41:00 PM

The Heat is making Dexter Pittman available in trades, according to Yahoo! Sports.

Try to contain your excitement. Pittman is unlikely to command much attention on the market if he gets any at all.
