The Miami Heat did it on Tuesday afternoon sometime. Sending Dewayne Dedmon to one of his former teams in the San Antonio Spurs, they finally got rid of the big man that many have been chiming in for them to do so for a while.

This was also their first attempt at making a deal in this NBA trade season and with only a few days remaining. What else though, outside of this Dedmon move and whom the Spurs reportedly don’t intend to keep, will the Miami Heat look to send out or take in?

Well, many have an eye on Kyle Lowry. And though nothing can be certain as of this particular point, because there are just so many factors that go into it all with any potential move in professional sports, there is chatter.

However, there are concerns surrounding it all too.

The Miami Heat made their first move by trading Dewayne Dedmon, but that might not be it. However, Kyle Lowry’s knee may complicate a deal involving him.

One of the biggest factors that may discourage any potential Lowry movement would be his knee. It’s now caused him issues for the last several weeks, it seems, while it also now seems that he will miss the next several games as well due to the issue.

And while his production for the Miami Heat in that span, missing those games specifically, is one thing to be concerned about, if he is to remain in South Florida, the bigger question at the moment might be this. What does that do for any potential trade value that he has?

Again, that’s probably the biggest question at this particular junction and again, especially with the trade deadline being on this coming Thursday, the 9th of February. With everything completely enveloped in the unknown at this particular moment and not just with the Miami Heat but around the league when it concerns the trade deadline, only time will tell.

But one has to be realistic and Lowry’s knee issue doesn’t bode well for the chances of moving the veteran point guard—if that’s their intention.
