NBA Rumors: Miami Heat Dangling 2-Player Package On Trade Market

The Miami Heat are poised to be another active player in these final days leading up to Thursday's trade deadline. They're on the hunt for an upgrade in the frontcourt, both at power forward and backup center. 

According to a report, they're dangling a package of two players they'd like to rid themselves of, plus a first-rounder as trade bait, to see who bites.

Dedmon fell out of favor earlier this season, partly due to a bizarre incident during play, and a blow-out argument with head coach Erik Spoelstra on the sideline. 

Robinson has been on the trade block all year, as the Heat try to get out from under the $48M they'll still owe him after this season, on the ill-advised 5-year, $90M deal they signed him to two years ago.

Orlando Robinson, who'd been acting as backup center recently, is out with an injury, so the Heat are desperately looking for reinforcements in the frontcourt.

Miami has been tied to some big men who are available around the league, including Jarred Vanderbilt of the Utah Jazz and backup center Nerlens Noel of the Detroit Pistons.

It remains to be seen if any team will bite on what the Heat have put out there on the market.
