Mavericks trade AJ Hammons to Miami for Josh McRoberts

Mavericks trade AJ Hammons to Miami for Josh McRoberts

After rumors swirled on Thursday night that the Mavs were making a trade with the Miami Heat, the team announced the deal on Friday.

But since everything that could go wrong has and McRoberts became the poster child for the bad luck the Heat have experienced the last three years.

"McRoberts, 6'10", played in only 22 games with Miami last season and averaged just 4.9 points and 3.4 rebounds in 17.3 minutes per game.

The 10-year veteran is due $6 million next season, and the Heat were motivated to dump his salary to clear space to sign veterans Kelly Olynyk and James Johnson, as noted by ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

McRoberts, who signed with the Heat as a free agent on July 14, 2014, appeared in 81 games (19 starts) with the Heat over his three seasons and averaged 4.1 points, 2.8 rebounds, 2.0 assists in an average of 15.7 minutes.

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".

That was when it was learned a right foot injury would knock him out of camp and he eventually would miss the first seven games of the season.

Hammons was selected in the second round, No. 46 overall, out of Purdue by Dallas in the 2016 draft. Hammons was the 2016 Big Ten Defensive Player of the Year during his senior season.

Dallas gets some future cap relief in the deal by sending Hammons to Miami. The Mavericks will presumably take on McRoberts' contract in order to acquire the draft pick, not necessarily because they want him.
