SIOUX FALLS, S.D. -- A great weekend for the Sioux Falls Skyforce got even better late Sunday night.
One day after completing a weekend sweep of the Reno Bighorns at the Sioux Falls Arena, the Skyforce learned that they will be getting one of their top players, Dexter Pittman, back from the Miami Heat.
The Miami Heat re-assigned Dexter Pittman to the Skyforce. Pittman (6-11, 285, Texas) returns to Sioux Falls having been assigned twice before this season, when he appeared in 12 games and averaged 13.3 points, 9.2 rebounds and 25.8 minutes.
Pittman rejoins a streaking Skyforce team. Sioux Falls has won six of their last seven, including last night's 105-87 dismantling of Reno. The Force led by as many as 30 points in the fourth quarter and were led by Demetrius Nichols game-high 26 points. Will Foster added 15 rebounds and six blocks.
Pittman is expected to join the Skyforce today and be available on Wednesday, Feb. 6 when the team travels to face the Fort Wayne Mad Ants in Indiana at 7 p.m. ET.
