Miami Heat trade Mario Chalmers to Memphis Grizzlies

Miami Heat has agreed to trade veteran guard Mario Chambers and James Ennis to the Memphis Grizzlies, in exchange to reserve players, guard Beno Udrih and forward Jarnell Stokes.Udrih and Stokes, however, will soon be traded elsewhere to help cut the Heat’s payroll and dodge a hefty luxury tax.

Chalmers currently owns the Heat all-time record for steals in a regular season game with nine on Nov. 5, 2008 vs. Philadelphia in what was his fourth career game.

The two time NBA Champion was selected by the Minnesota Timberwolves in the second round of the 2008 NBA Draft following his junior season at the University of Kansas. He joined the Heat Organization not too long after, where he became one of 43 players to have won both an NBA title and NCAA Championship.
