As the title says, Why did the Miami Heat choose Arvid Kramer with their first pick in the 1988 Expansion Draft?

The Miami Heat agreed not to select Bill Wennington, Uwe Blab or Steve Alford from the Dallas Mavericks in exchange for a 1988 first-round pick.[32][33] Because the Mavericks had already protected eight of their twelve players in their roster, the only available player for selection was Arvid Kramer.


edit also


The Heat used their first pick to select former third-round pick Arvid Kramer from the Dallas Mavericks. Prior to the draft, the Heat agreed on a deal to select Kramer, who had not played in the NBA since the 1979–80 season, from the Mavericks in exchange for a first-round pick in the 1988 Draft.[4]

It was more of a trade deal so the Mavericks could keep their other unprotected players. Miami also got Dallas's first round draft pick in exchange for choosing Arvid.

Edit: I didnt see somebody already posted that. :)

Lol at mavs giving away a first rounder to protect Blabb, the man the legend the Bust no one ever talks
bout.

Picked over Joe Dumars, Ac Green, Terry Catledge, terry porter, manute bol ( yep he was better), ty corbin, hot rod williams, G Wilkins, Mario Elie..........and several other role players that had better careers.

Hornets grabbed Dell Curry and Mugsy Bogues in that expansion draft. :clap:

Fun facts that I just found out for the first time:
The Miami Heat agreed not to select Kareem Abdul-Jabbar from the Los Angeles Lakers in exchange for a 1992 second-round pick.

The Miami Heat agreed not to select Dennis Johnson from the Boston Celtics in exchange for a 1988 second-round pick.

It would be kinda interesting to pick the players who your team would save if there was a expansion draft today.

Some of the stacked teams would have some hard decisions to make

The Dallas Mavericks wanted to make sure that their players Uwe Blab, Steve Alford or Bill Wennington, who were left unprotected, would not be selected, so they offered the Miami Heat the rights to Arvid Kramer and their first choice (No. 20) in the college draft (which later would turn out to become Kevin Edwards).[4] He never played for the Heat.

From Wiki

This then leads to the even more puzzling question: Why did Dallas care if somebody picked Uwe Blab, Steve Alford or Bill Wennington? I mean, giving up a first round pick to protect those guys? lol

When I first read the title to the thread I thought it was definitely going to be a stupid thread, but I actually learned something! Did not know this.
