Heat Acquire Victor Oladipo From Rockets

Victor Oladipo has finally gotten his wish. 

The Rockets have traded Oladipo to the Miami Heat for Avery Bradley, Kelly Olynyk and draft swaps, according to The Athletic. 

Oladipo who has long been rumored to want to play in South Beach will join a Heat team that's currently 22-22, tied for fifth in the Eastern Conference with the New York Knicks and Atlanta Hawks

Dipo will join a talented Heat core — consisting of Jimmy Butler, Bam Adebayo and Tyler Herro — that made the NBA Finals last season. 

This is the second time Oladipo has been traded this season. He was originally dealt to the Rockets by the Pacers earlier in the season. 

In 29 games with the Pacers and Rockets, the former Indiana product has tallied 20.8 points per game.
