Heat assign Pittman to D-League’s Sioux Falls

Miami Heat coach Erik Spoelstra says the team has assigned

center Dexter Pittman to the Sioux Falls Skyforce of the NBA’s

Development League.

Spoelstra says the move will give the second-year player from

Texas more time to develop.

Pittman has played in only four games this season for the Heat

and is averaging 1.5 points and 1.8 rebounds per game.

Miami has not filled his roster spot.
