Pat Riley Says He Wants Miami Heat to ‘Maximize Youth’ This Season
- Updated: July 12, 2019
While the Miami Heat are aiming to enter the 2019-20 season as contenders, they will concurrently be prioritizing their youngsters.
“Pat Riley said he wants the Heat to ‘maximize youth’ this season.”
Adebayo, 21, is coming off a very improved second season in the league. The 6-foot-10 center put up 8.9 points, 7.3 rebounds and 2.2 assists in 82 games last season.
With the Heat trading former star 7-footer Hassan Whiteside to the Portland Trail Blazers, the franchise has handed the keys to Adebayo to own the center position.
Meanwhile, Herro is showing tons of potential in Summer League, as he is proving to be one of the best rookies in his class. In his first five Summer League games, the guard has averaged 20.4 points, 4.8 rebounds, 4.0 assists and 1.6 steals per game.
