Heat trade Dewayne Dedmon to Spurs sportando.basketball/en/heat-trade-… – 1:30 PM
Some noise out there today that Chicago might be asking for more than expected for Andre Drummond at the deadline, maybe even keeping him.
Might be smoke — has been out of the Bulls rotation at times — but something to keep in mind with his name coming up as a Sixers possibility – 1:12 PM
Boy i was on that Hogwarts all night last night. Everything i wanted it to be so far – 1:00 PM
MIA has traded D. Dedmon and a ’28 2nd to SAS in exchange for the minimum amount of Cash required to execute a trade ($110K).
MIA was $200K < the tax and are now $4.9M < with a newly created $4.7M TPE.
Dedmon is essentially an expiring with $0 of his $4.3M GTD for next season. – 12:25 PM

The New York Knicks, Los Angeles Lakers and Dallas Mavericks are among the teams that have expressed interest in Zach LaVine, per @JamalCollier.
It seems unlikely that LaVine gets dealt prior to the deadline, but this may be a situation to monitor. basketballnews.com/stories/report… – 11:57 AM
There is always the possibility San Antonio moves one of its centers, but even if they do I would be surprised if they hung on to Dedmon. His previous stint here did not end very well. – 11:56 AM
Heat trading Dedmon, second-round pick to Spurs for tax relief, roster space. sun-sentinel.com/sports/miami-h… Move allows team to open two roster spots, address two-way deal of Orlando Robinson. – 11:55 AM
Just months after the Bulls signed Zach LaVine to a five-year, $215 million extension, rival executives get the sense that LaVine “isn’t considered off the table” in trade talks, reports @Matt Moore.
Chicago would want “star assets” back for LaVine. basketballnews.com/stories/report… – 11:54 AM
NEW from @Anthony Chiang and me: Heat trades Dedmon to Spurs, giving Miami more space, flexibility under tax line. The consequences, fallout: miamiherald.com/sports/nba/mia… – 11:52 AM
If “cash considerations” are indeed going from Spurs to Heat, it is almost certainly the “minimum consideration” in league trade rules of $110k – 11:43 AM
Heat now is $5 million under tax line, allowing them to take more salary back than they trade out in trade without exceeding tax OR fill two open roster spots without exceeding tax line. They had been less than $200,000 under line before today;2nd rounder sent to Spurs is in 2028 – 11:39 AM
No surprise Dewayne Dedmon is being traded. That’s been building since that whole incident on the bench. And Miami needed create some flexibility under the tax line. They’ve done that now.
Spurs get closer to the floor, all for renting a little cap space in exchange for a pick. – 11:38 AM
The Heat have traded Dewayne Dedmon and his salary to the San Antonio Spurs for a 2028 second-round pick. The move affords the Heat space under the luxury tax to sign a replacement for Dedmon and another player (or convert Orlando Robinson to a standard deal). – 11:38 AM
Heat trading Dedmon and a 2028 second round pick to the Spurs for cash considerations. By not taking a player from the Spurs, the Heat is now $5 million below the luxury tax line. – 11:35 AM
For the first time in Heat history, they’re making a trade with the Spurs. Details being finalized but Dewayne Dedmon and a second-rounder for cash considerations is the current framework, per source. – 11:29 AM

Triple take: Bulls 128, Spurs 104
1. DeRozan followed an all-too familiar script in helping down his former team.
2. Sloppy play continues without Jones, Sochan.

Mike Conley, on blocking out rumors: It’s tough. I don’t check Twitter or Instagram as often as the young guys, but some family member will send me a text: “Welcome to Chicago.” And then I have to check: Did I just get traded to Chicago? – 12:28 AM
Andre Drummond went OFF.
21 points | 9-9 FG | 15 rebounds | 3 steals pic.twitter.com/ReKAK9Acj3 – 12:15 AM
Crack research from @Danny Leroux as we broadcasted. Klay Thompson’s 12-16 is only the 3rd game in NBA history where a player made 12 or more 3s and shot over 75% from 3. Steph vs the Pels in 2017 and Zach LaVine in that crazy game vs the Hornets were both 13-17. – 12:09 AM
Jakob Poeltl finished with 14 points, nine rebounds and two blocks, marking the seventh time this season he’s had at least 10 points, five rebounds and two blocks. – 12:01 AM
Bulls finished with a season-high 74 points in the paint to the Spurs’ 58.
Spurs entered the game second in the NBA in paint points per game (56.4). – 12:00 AM
Keldon said it was “surreal” facing DeMar DeRozan, who mentored him early in his career:
“It’s definitely like a big-brother, little-brother moment when we are playing in the game, and I love it every time.” – 11:58 PM
Mavericks say Jaden Hardy (20y-216d) and Josh Green (22y-82d) each scored 29 points to became the first pair of Mavs teammates under 23 to score 25+ points in the same game since 1995-96.
Jason Kidd (27 pts) and Jamal Mashburn (27 pts) was the last instance, on 11/3/95 at Spurs. – 11:49 PM
Andre Drummond’s monster game fuels Bulls’ third straight victory.
Like his teammates, his focus is on trying to win games, not Thursday’s trade deadline.

Earlier tweet was worded poorly. Andre Drummond does have a player option for next year. So he could return to #Bulls for $3.36 million or opt out and become a free agent. – 11:20 PM
Andre Drummond: “I’m grateful and thankful to play this game. You never know when it can be taken from you. I never take this game lightly. I appreciate every moment I’m on that floor. When I get that chance, I try to play as hard as I can and give it all I have.” – 11:17 PM
A monster night from Andre Drummond powered the Chicago Bulls to a third-straight win — and moved them only one game away from .500. chicagotribune.com/sports/bulls/c… – 11:01 PM
Bulls pull out a laugher over the Spurs, led by Andre Drummond’s stellar performance off the bench. Is Drummond a Bull once the trade deadline comes and goes Thursday? Oh, the intrigue …

Pop heaped praised on Doug McDermott when asked about the former Bull, saying his ability to move without the ball has made him a “great example” for the young guys: “In addition to that, he is a great kid, fun teammate. Everyone enjoys him. He’s been a great addition for us.” – 7:21 PM
More from Pop on Spurs’ approach as losses mount: “It’s not about, ‘We’re losing these games. We don’t lose games here. We’re the Spurs.’ That’s all bull (bleep). We don’t do any of that kind of thing. This is all about individual development & what it takes to be part of a team. – 7:05 PM
Pop reiterated to Chicago media that character & humor is what has sustained the team through all the losing:
“We do the silliest things that I wouldn’t even say publicly cuz it’s almost embarrassing, they are so silly. But they like it. It keeps them loose, keeps them going.” – 7:02 PM

First of many thoughts entering #TradeDeadline week:
-The end of Kyrie & the #Nets? Maybe not.
-Big man interest continues for #Celtics
-Intrigue around CHI, TOR could lead back to BKN
-I can’t stop thinking about Grant’s future
-What will Jazz do?

Any Rozier to Chicago trade scenario must involve Lonzo Ball to match salaries. But that’s where I see the talks falling apart – how can you value Lonzo right now? Yes, you have him under team control for 2 more years, but he hasn’t played basketball in 388 days. – 4:12 PM

The ability to be able to include future 1sts in trades is extremely important for Front Offices when it comes to roster building.
POR really needs to work with CHI to adjust the protections on the 1st they sent them, which currently prevents POR from trading a 1st until 2030! – 12:28 PM
Andre Drummond was asked at Bulls shootaround if he expects to remain in Chicago beyond Thursday’s trade deadline.
“I don’t think expectations for anything is logical,” he said. “You can’t expect anything. This is the NBA. Anything is liable to…” theathletic.com/realtime/aPbiy… – 12:28 PM
Post-shootaround outlook for two starters Spurs listed as questionable for tonight at Bulls:
Keldon Johnson (ankle) participated in shootaround, so it looks promising for an upgrade.
Tre Jones (foot) received treatment during the workout, so he could miss his second in a row. – 12:26 PM
