The news first landed a short while ago via Miami Heat owner Micky Arison's Twitter page. The not-so-cryptic "#20" he mentions was all the scoop anyone needs, but the announcement has also been confirmed by the likes of Adrian Wojnarowski and David Aldridge, so yeah, it's happening.
The Grizzlies were a long-shot in this one, to be sure, but still: Another one bites the dust.
