The glimpses of Dexter Pittman have been fleeting.
Odds are, if you didn’t spend time in Sioux Falls, S.D., last season, you didn’t get much of a feel for how the game of the 2010 Heat second-round pick stacks up on the pro level.
And, yes, Pittman actually was selected as a D-League All-Star because of his work with the Skyforce (before a knee injury sidelined him).
His body of work with the Heat as a rookie in 2010-11? Two appearances, 11 minutes, two points, three rebounds, no blocked shots, two turnovers, two fouls.
Now, to a degree, the question becomes whether Pittman can offer more than expected camp invitee Eddy Curry, in a battle of, well, heavyweights.
For now, we’ll have to settle for these glimpses of the former University of Texas center during the recent lockout all-star game in Houston staged by John Lucas.

The Miami Heat are 2-1 favorites to win the NBA title. And when you've got a team that good, it stands to reason that guys looking for new homes in the NBA will want to come knock on your door.
Still more than a week from the Dec. 9 post-lockout start of the NBA free-agency period, the Heat already have words of interest from Samuel Dalembert, expressions of interest from Shane...
Was LeBron James the best player during the lockout??? In short, nope. KD fully took care of that business. However LBJ was a beast in the various charity games he played in too. Witness his unpaid exploits.
The official schedules have yet to change. The Heat’s, in fact, still lists five games in mid-December that can’t happen, with the league’s reset calling for a Dec. 25 restart (Heat at Mavericks) upon the confirmation of a collective-bargaining agreement.
But details are leaking out, the most-recent courtesy of New York Times NBA writer Howard Beck.

The Miami Heat had just about the most to lose from the NBA lockout. Having one of the highest revenue teams in the NBA, Heat owner Mickey Arison avoids losing a sizable sum of money. More importantly to Heat fans, though, is the fact that Arison's trio of superstars will not be robbed a year of their prime due to the lockout.
As long as Dwyane Wade, LeBron James and Chris Bosh...
James expected to appear at noon at Mason Community Learning Center on Wednesday.
It’s no secret that LeBron James had a crazy summer. With the NBA locked out, he participated in charity games all across the country, while still finding the time to shoot commercials and work out with his homies. Check out his offseason highlights above, courtesy of Hoop Mixtape.

Once the new Collective Bargaining Agreement is ratified by both players and team owners, the NBA’s free agency sprint is going to be one wild ride. Under League rules, players are the only ones allowed to discuss the matter at the moment, and they haven’t held back.

We in no way want to encourage you to gamble while in Las Vegas. There are so many fantastic restaurants — PBT personally recommends RM Seafood and B & B Ristorante — where you know you will get a certain return on your investment in the form of a great meal and atmosphere. But if…
Yes, we’re over the whole NBA CBA BRI issue as much as the next guy.
Enough with the alphabet soup.
But the Taiwanese animation studio NMA, as they have throughout the process, has cut to the chase.
What happened in the lockout and where does the situation stand today?
This not only explains it, it probably will lead to royalty rights for LeBron James and Dwyane Wade.
