DEXTER PITTMAN RUMORS

Rockets to release Dexter Pittman

In a bit of a surprising move, the Houston Rockets are going to release center Dexter Pittman, according Jonathan Feigen of The Houston Chronicle. The move is surprising because the Rockets just released big man Greg Smith to sign Pittman. Smith has been a solid contributor for the Rockets in the past, averaging 6.0 points and 4.6 rebounds in 15.9 minutes per game last season. He...

Dexter Pittman chose Bulls over Spurs

Former Miami Heat Center Dexter Pittman had a pretty busy year so far.    On February 21, 2013, Pittman and a second round pick were traded by the Heat to the Memphis Grizzlies for the rights to Ricky Sanchez and a trade exception.

Heat send Pittman, pick to Grizzlies

MIAMI -- The Miami Heat now have an open roster spot, just in case someone comes along and intrigues the reigning NBA champions before the season enters the home stretch.

Is Dexter Pittman Lazy?

Word is that the Miami Heat front office isn’t too fond of Pittman and his work ethic. Perhaps this is why Miami has been in constant search for big men this offseason. “A Heat official said the team was disappointed in Dexter Pittman’s summer league work and “this is a crucial training camp for him. But the slate is clear.” Pittman has a guaranteed contract ($854,389...

Dexter Pittman’s flagrant foul on Lance Stephenson

Miami Heat would blowout the Indiana Pacers in Game 4 of their Eastern Conference semifinals, and with a less than a minute remaining in the game, Pittman gives Stephenson a vicious elbow. The Heat were up by 25 points and the elbow given to Lance was deliberate and should have been a flagrant-2. It seems [...]

For those who need a Dexter Pittman fix | (Video)

The glimpses of Dexter Pittman have been fleeting. Odds are, if you didn’t spend time in Sioux Falls, S.D., last season, you didn’t get much of a feel for how the game of the 2010 Heat second-round pick stacks up on the pro level. And, yes, Pittman actually was selected as a D-League All-Star because of his work with the Skyforce (before a knee injury sidelined him). His body...
