The Miami Heat have opened up a roster spot by trading guard Roger Mason Jr. to the Sacramento Kings, according to the Sun Sentinel.
The Heat also sent cash to the Kings to make the deal work, and receive an ultra-protected second round pick in return.
In addition to sending cash along with Mason, the Heat will receive a future second-round pick from the Kings with enough protection that it likely will never be received.
Miami now has an open roster spot and is expected to fill it by the buyout deadline on March 1.
Possible buyout targets include Caron Butler, Ben Gordan and Emeka Okafor.
