Pittman, drafted in the second round in 2010 by the Heat, has played sparingly in Miami, appearing in only 41 total games over three seasons.
The main motivation for the Heat dealing him along with the pick was likely the small trade exception.
Pittman's a big body at 6-11 and 285 pounds but has never materialized into anything more than that. He's a raw player who hasn't found a way to really contribute. The Grizzlies have a little extra room in their frontcourt for depth security and probably don't mind trying him out to develop behind Marc Gasol.
Pittman, though, is slotted to become a restricted free agent this summer.
Pittman, 24, holds career averages of 2.8 points and 2.0 rebounds.
