Hawks release F/C Dexter Pittman.
Pittman was brought in as a warm body for the injury-depleted Hawks' frontcourt, but the 25-year-old only played three total minutes in two games with Atlanta. Pittman's release should pave the way for the Hawks to sign Mike Muscala.

Hawks sign F/C Dexter Pittman.
The Hawks are toast in the frontcourt tonight with Paul Millsap, Pero Antic and Gustavo Ayon, so the team waived Jared Cunningham to get another big man for tonight. If Pittman does get on the court, it should be interesting to see what kind of shape he's in. It's only a 10-day deal.

Dexter Pittman will join the Bulls for training camp.

The Heat have reportedly traded Dexter Pittman and a second-round draft pick to the Grizzlies, in exchange for a trade exception.
The trade deadline has been whisper quiet and this Pittman deal has zero impact in fantasy leagues, as he'll simply reprise his end-of-bench role for a new team. The Heat now have an open roster spot, and the trade exception gives them additional flexibility in future trade talks.
