5 Bold Predictions for the Miami Heat This Season


4. Josh Richardson Will Emerge as a Member of the Rotation

Not many people expected Josh Richardson to receive a guaranteed contract from the Heat, but he received just that.

Despite being drafted with the 40th overall selection in the 2015 NBA Draft, Richardson has already carved out a name for himself based upon his play in summer league.

In 10 overall appearances and six starts during the Orlando and Las Vegas Summer Leagues, Richardson averaged 11.8 points while shooting 38 percent from beyond the arc. More importantly, he displayed his ability to play multiple positions. The second-round draft pick is capable of playing small forward, shooting guard and point guard while being the team’s primary ball handler.

As ridiculous as it sounds, do not be surprised when Richardson cracks the Heat’s rotation during the season. He will have every opportunity to make just as big of an impact this season as his first-round pick counterpart, Justise Winslow.
