The Miami Heat will be sending embattled big man Meyers Leonard and a draft pick to the Oklahoma City Thunder for veteran forward Trevor Ariza.

Ariza and the Heat have been connected as of late, and this trade does not come as much of a shock.

In the deal, the Heat will get the opportunity to offload Leonard, who came under fire recently for uttering an anti-Semitic slur while streaming on Twitch.

As for Ariza, he brings versatility on the court as well as championship pedigree. He has not played at all thus far this season.

In his career, Ariza has averages of 10.5 points, 4.8 rebounds and 2.2 assists per game.
