Dexter Pittman

  1. Miami to sit LeBron, Bosh, Wade; Boston sits Allen, Rondo, Garnett

    Apr 24, 2012, 6:42 PM EST

    New Jersey Nets v Miami Heat

    I feel bad for the people who purchased tickets to see the Celtics vs. the Heat before this season hoping for a meaningful late-season showdown. Anytime the offense is running through Dexter Pittman there is no showdown. Both teams are sitting numerous key players because the game has little meaning. Miami will sit LeBron James,…

  2. It’s official — Heat sign Ronny Turiaf for rest of season

    Mar 21, 2012, 4:55 PM EST

    New York Knicks v Denver Nuggets

    UPDATE 4:55 pm: It is official, Ronny Turiaf is a member of the Miami Heat. Let the sideline cheering begin. The Heat had made runs at bigger name big men this season — Kenyon Martin when he returned from China, Joel Przybilla, others — but this gives them a little more depth up front. He…

  3. Winderman: NBA alternate uniform craze out of control

    Jan 27, 2012, 3:43 PM EST

    LeBron James, Kane Fitzgerald

    Finally, we have found the saving grace of this lockout-shortened season: The ratio between uniform combinations and games is drawing closer to a one-to-one basis. Even before the Memphis TAMs took the court against the L.A. Stars on TNT on Thursday night, we had entered a world where we were facing video-game-like choices when it…

  4. Dexter Pittman is Joel Anthony’s biggest fan

    Dec 1, 2011, 5:46 PM EST

    Joel Anthony

    Joel Anthony averaged just 2.0 points and 3.5 rebounds per game for the Miami Heat last season. Yet if you ask the right people, they’ll preach of his on-court value. Anthony is considerably undersized for the center position, but his smart decisions, constant activity, and impressive lateral quickness make him an excellent team defender. Anthony…

  5. If we can stop laughing, we’ll tell you about the Heat being interested in Eddy Curry

    Apr 2, 2011, 4:30 PM EST

    New York Knicks Media Day 2010

    We’re going to get through this with a straight face. Or at least as far as we can. You ready? Yahoo! Sports reports Saturday that the Miami Heat are strongly considering signing free agent center Eddy Curry to help with the playoff run. … Hold it in. Curry played, well, was on roster for the…

  6. Dexter Pittman to be sidelined 5-6 weeks due to knee surgery

    Feb 16, 2011, 5:03 PM EST

    Dexter Pittman

    There was a time when the stability of the Miami Heat’s center rotation was a matter of national importance. That time has faded as the Heat themselves have weathered through some growing pains as a team, but there’s still quite a bit riding on Zydrunas Ilgauskas, Joel Anthony, and Erick Dampier. Notably not included in…

  7. Heat to assign Dexter Pittman to the Sioux Falls Skyforce

    Nov 25, 2010, 9:30 AM EST

    Dexter Pittman

    Dexter Pittman couldn’t crack the Heat’s underwhelming center rotation, and the addition of Erick Dampier has made Pittman even more unnecessary in Miami. Thus, according to Ethan J. Skolnick of the Palm Beach Post, the Heat have decided to send the rookie big man to their D-League affiliate in Sioux Falls rather than bury Pittman…

  8. Will the Heat go after Erick Dampier?

    Sep 14, 2010, 3:38 PM EST

    I’ve lost count of how many centers the Miami Heat have under contract. Roughly the size of the Orc army in the Lord of the Rings trilogy, by my guess. But I could be off by a few. But they might add one more — Erick Dampier. The Miami Herald was doing a little speculating.…

  9. Woe are the Heat, who are locked in to a roster with three elite players

    Aug 27, 2010, 9:30 AM EST

    The Miami Heat didn’t remodel. They had a field day with a wrecking ball, ground the roster into a paste, and sold the remains to David Kahn. Brilliant stars, solid role players, and veteran contributors replaced the Heat that were, as Miami’s contract writers faced a hell of a summer rush. To say that the…

  10. Miami Heat goes big: re-signs Joel Anthony, inks draftee Dexter Pittman

    Jul 16, 2010, 8:44 PM EST

    It’s the question a lot of basketball people were asking after Miami pulled off the LeBron/Wade/Bosh coup: Who protects the rim on defense? Who is your real big man? The answer: Joel Anthony. And Dexter Pittman is in there too. Miami re-signed Joel Anthony to a five-year, $18 million deal, according to our own Ira…

  11. The terrifying possibility of a LeBron-Wade-Bosh triumvirate in Miami inches closer to becoming a reality

    Jun 29, 2010, 11:12 AM EST

    UPDATE 11:12 am: The Miami Herald and other sources are reporting that this summit did not happen in Miami. Turns out Wade spent last weekend in his hometown of Chicago. Although ESPN’s sources say they were all together in Miami. Whatever. See, there is this fancy new technology called the telephone where the three of…

  12. Texas star Dexter Pittman leaves NBA Draft Combine after family tragedy

    May 22, 2010, 11:00 AM EST

    On Thursday, Dexter Pittman was running around a gym in Chicago trying to prove to a room full our NBA general managers and scouts that he is in shape and that his post game has dramatically improved. But he left to return home on Friday after his brother had been shot and killed back home…
