The Memphis Grizzlies are including forwards Jae Crowder and Solomon Hill as part of the trade that sent Andre Iguodala to the Miami Heat, multiple outlets reported Thursday.
In exchange, Miami is sending forwards Justise Winslow and James Johnson and guard Dion Waiters to Memphis.
Details of the transaction were still being ironed out just ahead of Thursday’s NBA trade deadline.

Iguodala reportedly already has agreed to a two-year, $30 million extension with the Heat that includes a team option for the 2021-22 season.
Iguodala, 36, won three championship rings with the Golden State Warriors, but the forward was dealt to Memphis in the offseason in a cost-cutting move. Iguodala never played a game with the Grizzlies, instead receiving permission to stay away from the team as he requested a trade to a preferred destination.
Iguodala’s prolonged absence irked Grizzlies players, including Dillon Brooks, who recently told reporters, “I can’t wait till we can find a way to trade him so we can play (against) him. Show him what Memphis is all about.”
In his career, Iguodala has averaged 12.1 points, 5.1 rebounds and 4.4 assists per contest. He also has appeared in 145 playoff games, during which he has averaged 10.7 points, 4.8 boards and 3.9 assists. He was an All-Star in 2011-12 and the MVP of the 2015 NBA Finals.
Miami is Iguodala’s fifth team. He spent eight seasons with the Philadelphia 76ers, one with the Denver Nuggets and six more with the Warriors before his turbulent stint with Memphis.
The Memphis Grizzlies in the past year:
-Drafted Ja Morant
-Traded up for Brandon Clarke
-Dealt Mike Conley for Jae Crowder and a future first
-Acquired De’Anthony Melton to take Josh Jackson
-Got a first to take Andre Iguodala
-Flipped Iguodala for Justise Winslow
What a year.
