The Miami Heat traded Avery Bradley and Kelly Olynyk to the Houston Rockets on Thursday for guard Victor Oladipo and a swap of draft picks.

The Heat are looking to beef up their offense as they sit at .500 and hope to return to the playoffs and ultimately make a repeat appearance in the NBA Finals.

Earlier in the day they also traded Moe Harkless and Chris Silva to the Sacramento Kings for Nemanja Bjelica.

The 28 year old Oladipo will become a free agent this summer, Bjelica is also in the final year of his contract.

Oladipo is averaging 20.8 points with 4.7 assists per game on the season.
