The three-team deal involved the Minnesota Timberwolves in exchange for the Miami Heat’s Justise Winslow, James Johnson and Dion Waiters.

“We think the acquisition of Andre, Jae and Solomon will help us with our versatility and create a more balanced roster,” said Pat Riley, the Miami Heat’s president. “Today is also a sad day because we lose three very good players.”
