Predicting the Miami Heat’s 15-Man Roster for the 2015-16 Season

Miami Heat Team in Warmups

Shooting Guard

Dwyane Wade Miami Heat Shooting Guard

Starter: Dwyane Wade

Reserves: Gerald Green, Zoran Dragic, Josh Richardson

Dwyane Wade is the face of the franchise and will continue to be until the day he’s not wearing a Heat uniform anymore.

After a resurgent season that saw him rank 11th in the NBA in points per game, Miami re-signed the veteran guard to a one-year, $20 million deal.

While Wade remains entrenched as the starter, he’ll have some heavy backup—Green was signed to be a key scorer off the bench while the lesser-known Dragic looks to make a bigger impact in Miami after playing sparingly last season.

Josh Richardson was the team’s second-round draft pick this year and had an impressive summer league. He averaged 11.8 points, 2.8 rebounds, 1.6 assists and 1.7 steals while shooting 38.6 percent from beyond the arc.

He is also capable of playing point guard and small forward. He played point while at the University of Tennessee last season.

Because he can be signed to the minimum as a second-round draft pick, expect Miami to keep Richardson and develop him on a veteran-heavy team this upcoming season.

Next: Small Forward
