Miami Heat News: Bam Adebayo Wins Miami Pro League’s Summer MVP Award
- Updated: August 17, 2019
Based off of his recent performances in the Miami Pro League, it seems that step is right around the corner. On Saturday, Adebayo was named the league’s MVP after averaging some truly gaudy numbers.

🏆 2019 Summer League MVP 🏆 S/O to @bam1of1 aka “BIRTHDAY BAM for torching the courts this summer with an average of……….. 28pts – 13rebs – 4blks per game all while putting on a show for our Miami Pro crowds. After watching the work he’s put in this summer, he’s primed to have a hell of a season with @miamiheat this year! Heat fans getting ready!🔥 #MiamiProLeague #MVP #BamAdebayo #BirthdayBAM #BringYaGameNotYaName #WeDoThisForTheCITY #ThisIsMIAMIPRO🔥🏀🔥
Last season, Adebayo averaged 8.9 points, 7.3 rebounds, and 2.2 assists per game. While those are not eye-popping numbers, the University of Kentucky product will likely get ample opportunities to best his career-highs.
With the departure of big man Hassan Whiteside via trade earlier this offseason, Adebayo figures to be a major factor in the Heat’s frontcourt.
If he can get anywhere close to his Summer League averages, there’s little doubt that the Heat will be a force in the Eastern Conference this season.
