2010 NBA Draft

Posted Jun 25 2010 12:22AM

MIAMI (AP) -- The Miami Heat made their second trade with the Oklahoma City Thunder in the span of two days, sending the rights to forward Latavious Williams shortly after the draft for a protected second-round pick in 2011.

Williams is the first player to ever skip college, play a year in the NBA Development League and then get drafted. He averaged 7.7 points and 7.7 rebounds this past season for the Tulsa 66ers.

On Wednesday, the Heat traded the No. 18 pick and shooting guard Daequan Cook to the Thunder for the No. 32 selection in the draft, which Miami used to snare Texas center Dexter Pittman.
