According to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski, the Grizzlies have traded the three-time champion to the Miami Heat. The extension includes a team option.

Now that Memphis has scored another formidable asset in Winslow, the deal has to be considered a win for the rebuilding Grizzlies franchise that finds themselves battling for the No. 8 seed in the Western Conference despite a young roster. The forward has played in only 11 games this season because of injuries.

Memphis and Miami were in negotiations with Oklahoma City about a trade that would send Thunder forward Danilo Gallinari to the Heat, but those discussions came to a halt in the hours leading up to the deadline, Wojnarowski adds.

In an interview with The Undefeated's Marc J. Spears on Wednesday night, Iguodala said he will take a physical for the Heat on Friday and will need "a couple of days" before he's ready to play.

"[He brings] winning. He knows how to do that on both sides of the ball".

Iguodala, who was dealt to the Grizzlies from the Golden State Warriors during the summer but has not played for Memphis, agreed to the trade to Miami as well as a two-year $30 million extension after this season, reports Wojnarowski.

Iguodala is 36 and making $17.1 million this season.

The Grizzlies had been shopping Iguodala ever since the moment they acquired him from the Warriors in an offseason salary dump.

Iguodala is averaging 12.1 points, 5.1 rebounds and 4.4 assists in his National Basketball Association career.
