Miami Heat News: Heat Announce Official Summer League Roster
- Updated: June 28, 2017
The Miami Heat‘s annual process of getting a first look at their rookies and other players seeking to advance their development will take place on both coasts in July. That’s when action begins in both the Orlando Pro Summer League and the NBA Summer League in Las Vegas.
The team announced that a total of 14 players are on the Heat’s summer roster, most notably this year’s first-round pick, Bam Adebayo from Kentucky, and the only second year on the team, Okaro White. The remaining spots are filled with undrafted free agents and others looking to make their mark with either the Heat or an opposing franchise. The Heat squad will be coached by Assistant Coach Chris Quinn.
