The Heat dealt Andersen to Memphis in a cost-cutting move two weeks ago, a move that he saw coming since the summer. He doesn’t know if the reason he stayed glued to the bench this season was to preserve him for a trade, but he knew all along they wanted to deal him. And he was fine with that. Andersen, 37, would have preferred to stay with the Heat and remain in the rotation, but he never voiced a complaint — either publicly or privately. He went through the routine of practices, shootarounds, bus rides and flights knowing there was little chance of getting on the court and he did all of it with the utmost professionalism. No one on the team would argue otherwise.
