The Heat have traded Jarnell Stokes to the Pelicans.

It's basically just a salary dump for the Heat as they will only receive a highly-protected second-round pick from the Pelicans -- they're kicking in $700,000 as a sweetener, and will save about $2 million in luxury tax. Stokes was never able to crack the rotation in Miami, but that could change in New Orleans, especially if they end up dealing Ryan Anderson at the deadline. For now, owners in deeper leagues can simply keep Stokes on their radar.

The Heat are reportedly willing to trade Jarnell Stokes for a second round pick.

Stokes has only made a handful of brief appearances for Miami and he has spent the majority of his time in the D-League, so the Heat are simply looking to open up a roster spot. Unless Stokes is traded to an ideal situation, he would likely be looking at a very limited role. He's not worth stashing at this point.

Erik Spoelstra praised Jarnell Stokes' physicality in the paint.

"Jarnell has been a real, impact, force player in the paint," Spoelstra said. "The way this league is right now, also, you might say a player like Jarnell 10 years ago, you might ask what position is he? Is he undersized? Can he play? But he's a basketball player. He's physical. He's a presence." The lip service is a good way to build confidence, but Stokes is not going to be in Miami's rotation anytime soon.
